Favorite Looks From LCM: London Collections: Men

By Attireclub @attireclub

London Collections Attire ClubThe London Collections: Men event took place from the 6th – 8th January 2014 and featured menswear collections for the autumn-winter 2014 season.

We could see a lot of clothes signed by young designers and so we took a look what is going on in the head of the new generation. The collections overall were surprising, that could be the word to describe the event best. The shows reminded us more of contemporary art shows than of classic runway shows. One show even took it to a whole different level, by having the models walk through (of course artificial) rain, while the clothes got all wet. The designers placed a bigger emphasis on the statement they were making than on functionality or wearability of the clothes.

We could see a lot of creations inspired by childhood: bright colors, shapes and motifs typical for the world of cartoons, and even some very direct references to the world of Walt Disney and the movies with which the generation of young of today grew up. We can also see a lot clothes inspired from childhood science, as a lot of clothes include prints or patterns that remind the viewer of the moment you discover particles, chemistry and experiments. And maybe this is what so many of these collections were all about: the discovery and the rediscovery of the same things through another prism, a more mature, sophisticated and elegant one.

Among all this craziness, we could also find classic pieces, touched by the artful hand of a designer. There was a practical side to the event as well, as some of the looks were really impressive in terms of versatility and functionality and we’d love to see guys follow these trends.

While some creations were really outlandish and clearly done for the sake of the art and not for actual wearing, we also found outfits that can be worn or used as styling inspiration when putting an outfit together.

Have a look at a selection of our favorite looks (even though some of them were simply intriguing).
