Highlights from London Fashion Week Men

1 min read

As some British designers opt out of London Men’s Fashion in favour of releasing collections in coed shows or debuting in different cities, many young designers capitalised on the opportunity to take centre stage this week. From Nigerian born Mowalola Ogunlesi and Charles Jeffery to Samuel Ross, who recently won the Fashion Award for British Emerging Menswear Designer.

Other big names like British footballers David Beckham and Daniel Kearns were also part of the activities. The pair hosted a breakfast during the fashion week, during which British brand Kent & Curwen debuted its AW collection. The brand also announced its collaboration with the hit TV show Peaky Blinders and collaboration with David Beckham.

The capsule collection, entitled By Order of the Peaky Blinders featured chunky knits and collegiate stripes, which is very reminiscent of the show’s iconic fashion.

Younger designers put together show-stopping collections that ranged from androgynous cuts to flowing silks, and even Pokemon inspired designs. There was nothing off limits this season.
