London Fashion Week Mens’ offers a diverse range of designs for menswear with top designers such as Vivienne Westwood pushing the conformities of the menswear industries. This year, we have seen a huge change in the approach to men’s fashions by British designers who are opting for distinctive cuts and silhouettes, inconsistent with the trends of the past fashion seasons, and we’re here to bring the biggest trends to emerge from London Fashion Week Mens’.
Wide Legged Trousers
Skinny jeans and trousers have been at the forefront of trends over the past decade, however, in a bold move, designers are bringing back a wider leg creating a bulkier bottom half silhouette alluding to the baggy trousers of the 1990s. For the past fashion seasons, high street retailers and high fashion designers alike have stayed clear of wide-legged trousers in favour of a slim/skinny silhouette. However, if LFWM is anything to by, wide-legged trousers are back with a bang.
Velvet has been popular in AW collections for womenswear for quite some time, however, it is now becoming an emerging trend in menswear. From velvet bomber jackets to velvet trousers and tracksuit bottoms, it will be the fabric of the season come winter
Long, Statement Coats
While overcoats have been a staple of any man’s wardrobe, this season we are seeing a move from the classic black and camel coats into statemnt pieces. With exaggerated fur collars with oversized shapes, your coat has never been so important.
Since the revival of 90’s style, denim has slowly been making its comeback interms of light shades and of course, the denim on denim. As we can form Topman Design, designers are getting creative with colour using contrasting shades of denim to complete the overall look and pairing them with denim accessories. Lou Dalton takes a more minimalistic approach using denim jeans and jacket but pairing back the look by adding a simple t-shirt.
Athleisure is here to stay with designers provideing chic tracksuits with luxorius prints, in paticular Astrid Anderson and acclaimed fashion dessigner Vivienne Westwood. Topman Design and Christopher Raeburn have gone for a less high-fashion look, favouring the street-style aestetic using camo print and contrasting colours.
Gothic is back but with a touch of grandeur. The gothic style of all-black and sharp cuts have featured largely in LFWM this season, however, designers have taken a more chic approach to it byt pair outfits with embellished jackets and using rich fabrics to create a more siphistovated, high-fashion look.
