Dandies, Deserts And Dresses: 7 Trends From London Men’s Fashion Week


London Collections: Men is nothing if not eclectic. For next spring/summer, British designers showed a wide variety of looks, running the gamut from tracksuits and basketball shorts to Savile Row tailored suits and the most avant of the avant-garde.

Click through to see 7 trends for next spring according to London’s best and brightest.

How the West Was Stunned


Hentsch and Topman Design had a fixation on cowboys — and who of us hasn’t? — but where Hentsch went to the hipster rodeo, Topman opted for something a bit more slick, effete and romantic.

The Great Dandy


Hackett London took Jay Gatsby on holiday while Alexander McQueen took a trip through an English garden and Oliver Spencer channeled modern-day dandy, the late Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Leather Dandies


Not a traditional summer fabric, Richard Nicoll, J.W. Anderson and Pringle of Scotland had different takes on making leather work. And occasionally werq.

Jock Jamz


James Long made brilliant use of mesh, bold prints with even bolder colors and traditional sporty silhouettes — the basketball short never looked so chic. Rag & Bone was feeling very active, showcasing tracksuits and athletic-friendly fabrics. Meanwhile, this KTZ  kaftan cleverly referenced baseball jerseys and MAN rethought the hoodie.

Dorothy Zbornak


Always a fan of a drop waist, a knee-length collared shirt, a blazer over a dress and pants so wide you’d easily mistake them for a skirt, Golden Girl Dorothy Zbornak provided some perhaps unintended influences on J.W. Anderson, E. Tautz, Spencer Hart and KTZ.

In Screaming Color


Burberry returned to its love of dramatic primaries and Katie Eary turned up the dial to 11 with her wigged flamingo prints. Jonathan Saunders had a subtle balance. Not MAN, however — unable to decide on one color, they used them all.

Desert Warrior


Lee Roach, Christopher Raeburn and KTZ  weren’t thinking about the beach but they certainly had some sand on the brain with these desert-ready designs.

KTZ, though, took it a step further, mixing influences from Lawrence of Arabia to Muammar Gaddafi and the Ninja Turtles for a serving of Mortal Kombat realness:


Flawless victory.
