According to Van Dijk (2014), the colour is the basic discerning factor in modern design and combined with interesting shapes and cuts it can bring life and energy to different items whether they are pieces of clothing or simply everyday use objects. With this in mind, designers at the London Men’s Fashion Week have been treating us to an aesthetic feast trying to not just make us go ‘Wow” but look at men’s fashion in a slightly different light…

Craig Green collection is all about imbalance and uncertainty in the current world. The designer compares it to the rough sea that’s harsh and unpredictable. Perhaps the reason behind Craig’s take on modern mens fashion meant use of oversized fisherman’s hats, rain macs, thick and heavy tweeds with rope like belts around models’ waists to ensure that an individual is shielded from the hostile external world.

The Bobby Abley collection is a culmination of colour and humorous approach to fashion. Whichever combination he chose, the outcome was simply tremendous. Full of nostalgic throwbacks to the era of Power Rangers, the pop culture inspired collection with vibrant prints, strips of chocolate fur, teddy bear symbols or AB initials, Abley’s collection is, most importantly, wearable with the core elegance still intact.

Puffer jackets, bomber jackets, protective and industrial outwear, oversized sweatshirts and trucker jackets dominated the catwalk of Liam Hodge. The designer utilised streetwear and gave the collection a modern military like feel by injecting spectrum of green (acid, olive and forest) and dark colours such as brown and black. The whole collection is a sarcastic comment on the current political landscape in which we found ourselves in today and called it a post apocalyptic one, hence the reference to the military symbols such as camouflage prints…
