It’s Time For The Menswear Takeover At London Collections: Men
Be prepared for some dapper looking fellows, plenty a fashion party, and some exclusive new designs from Britain’s leading fashion talents... as the time has come to celebrate what the men will be wearing next Fall!
On Monday, London will open it's doors to the fashion parade and celebrate British Menswear with the start of London Collections: Men. The three-day event, kicks-off the Fall 2013 Menswear calendar and sees some of the world’s top design talents showcase their ready-to-wear collections at a host of exclusive venues across the city.
And with a program that reads like a who’s-who at... well, fashion week... this season is set to be the most innovative and fashion forward yet.
Naturally, we have the big players: Burberry, Tom Ford (Men’s), Christopher Kane (Men’s), J.W. Anderson Men, Jonathan Saunders, Vivienne Westwood Man, and others presenting their new collections at The Hospital Club -- the official British Fashion Council (BFC) venue -- in London’s Covent Garden.
Meanwhile, six new ready-to-wear designers, including modern menswear brand The House of Nines, and Liam Gallagher's Pretty Green brand will be presenting their Fall 2013 designs for the first time at the event. There will also be exhibits hosted by the world’s most bespoke tailors of Savile Row.
Hear what the designers, editors, and fashion maverick’s have to say about their style icons, who they like to dress for, and the question on everyone’s mind -- boxers or briefs?
The week, marks the second ever edition of LC: M, with the inaugural event taking place last Summer:
“LC: M has already contributed to the changing perception of menswear in this country, and our plans for the next week in January, and beyond, will hopefully build on this,” comments Dylan Jones, Editor of GQ and Chair of the Menswear Committee.
To wrap up the week, Sir Paul Smith, Tinie Tempah, and Jones are hosting a private dinner to celebrate the close of the fashion extravaganza, which will be closely followed by an exclusive party with Tom Ford!
