From the 9th – 12th June, London Fashion Week Men’s celebrated their five year anniversary. The event gathered designers, retailers and leaders in the fashion community from 45 countries. London is often considered a home for menswear, with Fashion Week providing a platform for both emerging and established brands to take the stage. Check out some of the most show-stopping designers from this past year’s event below.
Topman kicked off the weekend with a lavish event at Truman Brewery on Friday night. This year, the brand’s intention was to “change the perspective” of menswear with 80s-themed and gender-fluid looks. This upcoming season, expect to see more wide-legged trousers than skinny jeans on Topman customers.
On Sunday night, Martine Rose launched her show in Tottenham at Seven Sisters Market and a climbing wall. Her clothes all reflected an outdoorsy theme with cargo shorts, hoodies, and fleece. Rose said she drew inspiration from subcultures interested in outdoor sports.
Known for her outlandish, artistic and acrobatic shows, Vivienne Westwood lived up to her reputation during her show at the Seymour Leisure Center. Her clothes featured pinstripes, campaigning T-shirts, and corset dresses. However, she presented each look in a unique way by using surreal makeup and accessories.
On Sunday, with the support of his family, former footballer David Beckham launched his collection for Kent & Curwen. For the upcoming season, the clothes were inspired by cricket with cardigans, striped blazers and more.
