A host of Britain’s best menswear designers are heading to the UK capital this week for the London Collection: Men shows.
Kicking off today, Burberry, Hackett London, Lou Dalton, Matthew Miller and Oliver Spencer will all be sending their autumn/winter 14 collections down the catwalks at the start of the three day fashion extravaganza.
If you are looking for Savile Row-style sharp suits, Richard James will be showcasing his latest collection, while for something a bit more casual and on-trend, Kit Neale and J.W Anderson will be displaying their newest creations.
There will also be a number of designer showrooms from the likes of Lee Roach and Astrid Andersen, as well as a performance by Beady Eye to help launch the latest Pretty Green collection.
Other highlights include the Fash/On Film event which takes a look back at the year in fashion film featuring guest speakers and screenings, while we’ll be heading to the Terry Hall Retrospective hosted by Fred Perry, which will feature a host of unique musical performances.
If you’re thinking of attending, you’ll be in good company. London Collections ambassadors David Gandy, Dermot O’Leary, Tinie Tempah and Nick Grimshaw are sure to be on the front row for at least a few shows.
“Season four of London Collections: Men promises to be the best one yet, as it has such a vast array of great shows, presentations, events, dinners and parties. LC: M has already become a staple of the menswear calendar, and is a fabulous way to kick off the season. We have all been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm for the project, and the scale and ambition of all the many designers who are now showing here is incredibly infectious. To those of you who have yet to come to LC: M, all I can say is: come on in, the water’s lovely!” said Dylan Jones, Editor GQ & Chair of the Menswear Committee.
