Deviating from the rule of ‘ladies first’, January revealed the London Collection: Mens AW’15 designs from inspirational brands and iconic British fashion houses.
Flaunting creative performances by Paul Smith, printed outerwear at Burberry Prorsum as well as traditional tailoring from Saville Row, the London circuit applauded the menswear industry which has created a platform for innovative menswear. For the weekend in January, a pedestal was created to showcase fashion flair through to high-street commerciality, where Alexander McQueen, Aquascutum and Tom Ford shared space with Dunhill, Barbour and Joseph.
Now we await the kick-off to the numerous Fashion Weeks in February, with an international celebration of style that takes us around the different capitals of couture. Featuring New York, London, Milan and Paris, the Fashion Week hype begins to build, and expectations are rising. What’s in store for the Front Row in 2015?
How will Chanel up the ante and exceed last season’s supermarché sensation? Will Mulberry return to the wooded wonderlands with critters on-show?
How will sustainable (not ‘eco’) fashion merge with the iconic powerhouses, and what will the new BIG debate be?
A repeat in the obsession in size?
The new-found ‘face’ of the industry?
Or perhaps a more controversial conversation?
From the 12th February, designers will be presenting their finest creations and tailoring the next season of trends for the highstreet. Our eyes are going to be looking at Anya Hindmarch, David Koma and Erdem for structured style, with hopes of pieces to purchase from Felder Felder, House of Holland and Jonathan Saunders.
Stay tuned for our updates on the weird and wonderful of fashion week next month!
