This week saw the seventh London Collections Men take place over four days at various locations across the city, showcasing the best Britain has to offer in menswear. Between the catwalk shows, presentations, showrooms, extravagant parties and the streetwear seen around each venue, it was something for Britain and the fashion world to be truly proud of and something we were constantly inspired by.
London Collections Men is produced by the British Fashion Council and is the menswear alternative to London Fashion Week, although feels more raw and edgy. To quote the British Fashion Council “London Collections Men emphasises both the creative and commercial importance of British brands and emerging talent as well as the rich cultural landscape that contributes to the inspiration and success of this sector.” With shows ranging from the most innovative up-and-coming young designers, to the global powerhouse brands, from the most eccentric and out-there outfits to more wearable pieces, it wasn’t to be missed.
With London being at the forefront of the fashion world, always pushing forward and offering young fashion creatives first class education and funding opportunities, it’s no wonder New York has decided to take our lead and will be running their own dedicated men’s fashion week next month.

With two existing designs, a new design for SS15 dropping next week and an exclusive design for Office shoes available in-store and online, our men’s collection is growing and our SS16 update is already being worked on between our London designers and traditional factory in Menorca.
