London Collections:Men AW15 – Shows & Designers Overview

London Collections:Men seems to have been and gone in a flash! Although the dates are possibly a little too soon after X-Mas creating a rush for the designers, for me LCM is a more civilised fashion event compared to the circus you find at London Fashion Week.

There are three main venues for LCM, The Old Sorting Office showcasing some of the major catwalk shows, The Hospital Club with three floors of designers categorised in ‘contemporary & outerwear’, ‘luxe basics & tailoring’ and ’emerging streetwear,’ and Victoria House showcasing further catwalk shows and the accessories room. In all of the venues buyers an press can mingle and enjoy the 66kg of Lavazza coffee, 6,1000 bottles of Warstiener larger, 2,500 bags of Propercorn and 5000 bottles of complementary Fiji water that were allegedly consumed over the 4x day period! With over 70 designers and 32 catwalk shows exhibiting this year there was a lot to see!

This season seemed a little quieter than past seasons though, possibly due to the rubbish British weather, the fact people were getting over their X-Mas hangovers, or perhaps due to what was going on in the news? But that said, it was still good to see some celebs and menswear ambassadors out in force: David Gandy, Tinie Tempah, Nick Grimshaw as well as Darren Kennedy, Will Young and GQ’s Dylan Jones to name a few.

This year Tinie Tempah took over Nick Grimshaw as ambassador for LCM. A role he fits perfectly. However I have to wonder if Tinie is becoming too much of a ‘face’ of LCM that he could risk becoming too saturated? He still looked incredible though, especially on day 1 when he wore a handmade Sherlock Holms inspired suit that has since been donated to the Museum of London.

I was lucky to be invited to a number of catwalk shows, some of which I couldn’t attend due to the incredibly tight timetable which was a little frustrating, but the ones I did see were well worth it.
Here are a few of my pictures from the catwalk shows and showrooms for AW15.
