Most Inspiring Collections of Fall 2014 Men London Week
Here comes my favorite collection of London Week. E. Tautz offers quite an engaging amplua of a mysterious man – the one who can break your heart as well as make your head go dizzy. The widebrimmed hats along with classic coats seem to be very simple and elegant, however each of such looks is complemented by saucy details. Be it a catchy color, unque pattern or layered style, all solutions perfectly work. I like the way different pieces are combined - Patrick Grant, the creative director, definitely knows a lot about men’s fashion.
MAN was relatively classic, yet this line differs from the previous one a lot. In a sense that it features very modearte silhouettes and conventional style of the suits – yes, by no means, it is very traditional. However, when it comes to the color choice and adornment, there is no way you can call this colllection “regular”. Saucy duos in blue and white or champagne and grey won’t leave any single person untouched. Besides, it is not only about black tie suits. You will also spot kimono-like pieces that have a very clear religious touch.
Burberry Prorsum opted for a more edgy side and presented a very stylish collection. The British fashion house featured leather jackets, mesh shirts, brightly designed scarfs, fur coats, ethnic shirts and chunky bags. This particular line is incredible in terms of how each of the looks is composed of various clothing pieces that wouldn’t normally go along with each other. But the popular brand is always on top of it, so no wonder we can’t look back anymore. Christopher Bailey’s inspiration was “painters on a journey, romantic painters with a masculine point of view, and the artists’ efforts at self-expression.” The designer was very much affected by Lucian Freud, Ben Nicholson, Christopher Wood and Duncan Grant.
Christopher Shannon is mostly about sporty man. The designer linked the line to “the early years of Thatcherism and the post-punk era.” Shannon man is always eager to spend an extra hour ot two to work out in the gym or run across the coast. To be in a good fit, the stunner would probably go for the trendy clothing articles as those ones created by the London-based brand. Moreover, they seem to be very comfortable to wear and easy to match other outfits with. The only thing I am not fond of is this pair of shorts which seems to be too short for a guy to wear. Consider me to be too conservative, but there is no way a man should ever sport something like that.
Diesel Black Gold designed quite a stylish line as well. It will speak to a very specific group of men: young, rebellious and innovative. These outfits might not be the perfect ones to wear to the working station, yet they might be perfect for the go-outs. Leather, studs, skinny jeans, and fur – this is what the collection is mostly about. In regards of the color combinations, you will love the pieces in snow white, elegant black nad trendy khaki. The most amazing fact here is that Andreas Melbostad was debuting with the men’s collection: it was the very first time the designer stepped away from dresses and ruffles to create something “mannish”.
Agi & Sam found inspiration in the fascinating culture of the African tribes. Agi Mdumulla shared witht he public on the fact that his “grandfather was actually a Masai warrior when he was captured by an enemy tribe.” The designer was lucky to spot the travelling members of his clan around Kilimandjaro last summer – just to get the idea of the new collection. “That made this collection, shown to the throbbing beats of live African drums, a very personal one for the young designer who, together with partner Sam Cotton, married the contrasting cultural references of tribal Africa and Western oil conglomerates”. The line is truly very inspiring and strong in terms of the message. I like the graphic lines and laconic color combinations which are very much about men.
Alexander McQueen offered very abstract designs and patterns – as if winter wasn’t enough to get under the spell of dreaming. The collection is mostly in very dark and gloomy shades with rare splashes of gold, white or gray here and there. By all means is the line super artistic and creative, as it always is. You will be very much compelled by the patterned coats in midi length, glowing smokings and fluffy sweaters. Yet, the skirt might not look that impressive at all.
Fall 2014 Men London Week showed off some outstanding collections, while other lines were not that amazing. The above ones demonstrate great style and perfect composition, which is exactly why they got in our list of the best collections.
