There are a few things I really love about men’s fashion week in London. Firstly, the crowd of impeccably stylish men whose outfits are just so interesting. The thing with menswear is that there are fewer pieces to work with, and therefore men actually need to be more creative with how they dress. Their pieces must have a detailed focus on quality, fabrics, and cut, arguably more-so than in womenswear. They often need to invest more in their wardrobe to stand out from the crowd. The menswear industry is growing at a much higher rate than womenswear. I think this has been triggered by both the Pitti Uomo movement and the likes of brands like MR PORTER creating content that makes fashion, grooming and lifestyle much more accessible and metrosexual. It’s really interesting how its becoming increasingly acceptable for men to share their style, build up their social followings and buy fashion online.
This LCM I also absolutely loved bumping into old friends / talented photographers like David Nyanzi and Jonathan Daniel Pryce. The menswear world in London is so small, so you often see the same people at all the fashion weeks which leaves me with quite a nice familiar feeling.
