London Men Fashion Week FW17

Give me five: the best 5 moments of LCM London Men Fashion Week FW17

London Men Fashion Week is over. Lot’s of brands, from Vivienne Westwood to Topman, attended the event. We want to show you our favorites show!

#1 J.W. Anderson

In a labyrinthine set near King's Cross, to the electronic music, alternate the Irish designer's creations: thick wool coats with over sleeves, long tunics over pants, brightly colored maxi cardigans, striped shirts with liturgical window stickers printing. Lot’s of rainbow crochet, typical elements of 70s that Anderson has reworked.

#2 Christopher Shannon

Post-brexit political declaration or simple aesthetic gimmick to make the show catchy? It's the question that some asks after seeing Christopher Shannon's catwalk where the models had the face covered with shredded flags. The main clothes are: boxy denim jackets, tracksuits with poppers, neon hoodies and combat trousers on which the Timberland logo becomes "Tumbleweed", Boss International "International Loss", CK "CS" aka "Constant Stress".

#3 Craig Green

Craig Green, British Menswear Designer of 2016, is one of the most highly awaited talents of this London Fashion Week. Each collection arouses interest of the press and the public, but how born that for next autumn-winter? Apparently Green are sitting in front of the TV watching an episode of the program "Who do you think you are?", and was fascinated by the story of some old fishermen who sailed leaving for a long time to land and family ties without seeing or hearing them. So the man began to reflect on the sea as a symbol of isolation, of fragility, of the terror. All this combined with the images of a book about military uniforms has become a series of quilted vests, tightly belted wool coats, drawstring sailor, fragmented jackets and dresses created from a patchwork made of printed fabrics that resemble rugs of an Irish pub.


“I’m an old man, I just want to go to bed early and create”
, joked A-COLD-WALL*’s 25-year-old creative director Samuel Ross, who has seen his fair share of the high life as former creative assistant to Virgil Abloh, collaborator of Kanye West and founder of Milan-based label Off-White. So this for the first time at the London Fashion Week he presents the collection of the brand launched last May: pinstripe structured suit, outerwear that looks like a silver foil lab coat, T-shirts and sweatshirts with an unusual structure. A selection of 14 interesting pieces completed by a preview of the Nike Air Force 1 that Ross created with NikeLab.

#5 Martine Rose

At Seven Sisters indoor market, nearby to the Tottenham-based studio she's worked out of for the last ten years, Martine Rose presents a collection that explores different male characters: the bus driver, the banker, real estate agent, the office worker. Between shops and stalls, in front of guests like the it girl FKA Twigs, is staged Rose's vision for Winter 2017 an hybrid that combines the Robert Mapplethorpe sexuality, virility of Mark E. Smith frontman of the band The Fall, and the art of the 90s rave scene in Great Britain. The models, "American Psycho-style bankers" have hair draping long over one eye and wear satin shirts, deconstructed trench coats, boxy and baggy trousers, jackets and ties.
