Men’s Collections

Men’s Collections London is quickly becoming one of the most influential Menswear weeks of the year!  Burberry returned from Milan and newcomers such as JW Anderson created one of Men’s Collections most high profile weeks to date.  On the catwalk, colour was one of the key trends from strong primary’s to summery pastels, sketched graphics seen at Christopher Kane were also popular and designers such as Jonathan Saunders continued to push boundaries with unique fabrics.  However, it wasn’t just the catwalk that attracted attention, from Florence to London and Milan; the menswear street chic on show was unmissable.  Tommy Ton amongst others, captured everything from dapper suits, to the chiselled models and the women literally rocking the ‘boy meets girl’ trend……Apparently Menswear really is where it’s at!

JW Anderson Vs Versus

Man of the moment JW Anderson must be eager to impress as he reveals his latest collaboration with Versus this week in New York.  Taking over from Christopher Kane, Anderson has a lot to live up to; but I’m sure given his latest run of success he’ll do just fine!  With Anderson winning the ‘Emerging Talent Award for Ready-to-Wear ‘at this years British Fashion Awards, Donatella obviously has her finger firmly on the fashion pulse – lets hope it’s reflected in the latest Versus collection….coming soon . . . .
