I’ll kick things off with Topman Design which brought vivid colours (absolutely amazing by the way!) in it’s ‘Tailored East Coast’ meets ‘Skaterboy West Coast’ themed show tinged with a hint of sportswear.
Followed by Martine Rose’s flamboyant collection inspired by Bernini’s sculpture ‘The Rape of Persephone’. I love the mix of muted and bold colours and rigid shapes.
And then Oliver Spencer which was inspired by painter Ben Nicholson and Russian modernism. I absolutely love the colour blocking in this collection!
And then finishing off the day (for me) was YMC influenced by a mix of vintage kimono prints, early 60s West Coast surf culture and late 80s casuals. For me this is casual tailored perfection!
All in all, a brilliant day and I couldn’t imagine a better way to kick start the very first London Men’s Fashion Week. 🙂
