Today is the 1st of June.
For some, it means nothing.
For some, it marks the beginning of Summer.
But for me, and many others, it reminds that it’s two weeks until LCM.
(That stands for London Collections: Men for the people that don’t know!)
Fashion Weeks have taken over and has often left the men in the dark. But over the past few years, men’s fashion has become increasingly popular and has become a date for your diary (it’s certainly in mine!)
Spring/Summer ’15 is a good year. I feel it. & I’m gonna be mentioning the 3 showroom collections I’m most excited for and why I am so anticipating a good season.
Lyle & Scott
Most of you would, and should in my opinion, know this brand as they been around for quite a while – 140 years to be precise – and have an established place within the fashion industry. For SS15, they have once again collaborated with Jonathan Saunders and Universal Works to launch exclusively at LCM. They promise to bring us new and exciting looks, working with colours, textures and shapes to help put that spring flair into your outfits.
This duo have always been a passion of mine. They have created collections that directly correlate with my style and it only seems right to mention them. Their eye for difference is effortless – the two designers have separate ideas which are then incorporated into the designs with such ease. For SS15, they opt for “clean lines and raw edges, a hint of athleticism with an elegant approach.”(This quote got me so excited!) They have also said that the white shirt is the highlight of their collection which is definitely a winner in my eyes.
Some of you may not have heard of Marwood before, so here’s a little introduction. They are an accessories brand that designs ties, bow ties, socks and scarves and apparently a special product for this season – eeeeek! They love to play around with colour palettes, designs and fabrics to create a completely unique twist on the modern mens accessory. It seems like they would appeal to every dapper man in history with their luxury materials and clean-cut styles to put that finishing touch to any gentleman.
So, there we have it, my favourites for LCM SS15 and the ones I think will be received the best.
Do you agree/disagree with me? What are your favourites? I’d love to know.
