This morning in Paris, Junya Watanabe delivered a stunningly smart and masculine collection with a Japanese twist, accessorised with bowler and top hats. But what stood out the most is his choice of models: in a world generally saturated with white faces, it was refreshing to say the least to see such a beautiful ethnic mix on the catwalk! We love!
In the awe-inspiring setting of Middle Temple, one of London’s finest Elizabethan buildings, Pringle of Scotland presented a truly luxurious collection, full of chunky cable knits, classy pea coats and prints of pixelated camouflage. And not a golf outfit in sight! Definitely one of our highlights of this season’s London Collections: Men
This morning, 12 MA Menswear students showcased their final collections.
Bright and bold designs contrasted against the beautiful scenery of the Old chapel pillars along with peaceful atmospheric sound gave an overal brilliant performance.
12. NA LIU – Explores fluidity with drapery, tailoring with floral headpieces.

Friday sees the start of London Collections: Men and one of the shows we most look forward to is MAN, the joint initiative between TOPMAN and Fashion East, which will be showing this friday and feature emerging talents Rory Parnell-Mooney, Liam Hodges and Nicomede Talavera.
We are especially excited because Black Eyewear have designed special frames exclusively for the Nicomede Talavera show so we are quite excited!
Until then, here’s a link to Liam Hodges’s SS15 collection:
Today was the Press Launch of the fourth London College of Fashion pop-up shop, based just off Carnaby Street, which showcases many young emerging designers, all of them current students or recent graduates from LCF.
