London Men’s Fashion Week: The Good, The Bad & The “WTF”?

London Collections: Men kicked off the round of menswear shows in Europe on Monday, presenting the best…and other things that Brit talent has to offer for the upcoming fall season.

TopMan Design emphasized volume and some sumptuous shades of sherbert.

We can always get behind a jumpsuit and so can Lou Dalton.

Christopher Shannon made some faces…

…And deconstructed some sleeves

Richard James‘ natty tailoring perfectly captured the spirit of the English gentleman.

While Hackett didn’t shy away from mixing and matching prints, then threw a tartan cape over it.

If Hackett didn’t shy away, Astird Andersen for MAN (a joint initiative between Topman and Fashion East which champions emerging menswear designers) dove headfirst into prints…

…Channeling the 90s with baggy pants, high fades and a bold lip.

Craig Green for MAN‘s avant garde designs may have had models scratching their heads…

…But hopefully they didn’t get a splinter from their plywood masks.

Agi & Sam for MAN‘s looks were tame compared to their fellow MAN designers, but they had a leg, or paw, up with coordinating canine couture.

Katie Eary‘s fall collection is not for wallflowers despite the heavy use of florals.

Johnny Depp was apparently one of Oliver Spencer‘s inspirations, at least when it came to facial hair.

Which designs would you kill for…and which wouldn’t you be caught dead in?

      I’m sorry but the only one even close to fashionable was the all black jumpsuit. Addition painted plywood as a headpiece to a design does not make it Avant Garde. Deconstructed sleeve design was ok but have seen it. While i want to see something new, i also do no want to see destroyed bodily design and these have a lot of flaws. Baggy pants, ok but lets update it to 2013. The sherbert design was just a little too loud. I am actually very disappointed seeing these designs and if this is the direction fashion is taking now I would prefer to run the other way and go back in time to better designs where I still look good.

      I agree with Raquel!

      The first design.. Are you kidding me??? The sherbert look?? You might see a mix and match, however, I SERIOUSLY doub it.

      The second design…LOVED the black jumper!! Now THAT is functional and I could see that paired with really awesome boots and some mix and match shirts and an accessory or two for the trendy side; then just no shirt and unbotton to navel for a night at EAGLE.

      The third design… I actually liked, as well. CUTE sweater; don’t know if I like the long shirt underneath,but the pants and shoes paired with it make it playful and trendy.

      The fourth design… Deconstructive sleeves….SEEN IT!!

      The fifth design… Is kind of cute…. something about the fitted jacket (maybe the color) and the pants look good; don’t care for the ascot.

      OKAY 6-11… THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN AND THEY ARE WEARING THE BIG TOP….

      The last design… VERY JOHNNNY DEPP.. I kind of like the French/Depressed Actor meets Gloucester Fisherman look…

      Oh, yeah, I can just see someone walking through Times Square with a plywood mask on his face. Ye gods, do they really expect people to wear some of this crap?

      Hardly original. In fact, these remind me of some of Bowie’s get-ups from the Ziggy days in the early 70s!
