London Collections: Men SS17

From runway to moodboard

London Collections: Men SS17 From runway to moodboard

London says goodbye to Collections: Men.

Not because as many claim the men’s shows are disappearing following the increasingly blurred boundaries between masculine and feminine, but because the next edition will be named London Fashion Week Men’s.

The latest shows reflect the period of transition hanging in the balance between gender fluid, creativity and experimentation, nostalgia and tradition, sporty silhouettes and ethnic features.

Agi & Sam look back at their childhood in the countryside, Topman's designer remembers the summers spent on the English coasts and the Sibling's duo dreams of Miami's beaches.

Nasir Mazhar mixes army and sportswear influences, Astrid Andersen urban and Athleisure. If Craig Green, Ximon Lee and Christopher Shannon play with volumes, cuts and overlaps, J.W. Anderson tells us the Little Prince.

London reflects its thousand faces and shades, its multiculturalism and the many different influences revealed these days.

Here are some of the most interesting ones.
