  2. LCM: REVIEWING JONATHAN SAUNDERS AW14

    Date 15 Apr 2015
    Despite the vast concrete space, the richness of Jonathan Saunders AW14 presentation consumed the room and drew the army of press towards the zealous patterns. Models perched on amplifiers; their hair parted and slicked liked rockers, while brightly coloured electrical cables lay strewn at their feet. As the designer wandered openly through…

  3. LCM: REVIEWING TOPMAN DESIGN AW14

    Date 15 Apr 2015
    Starting with the intense voice of John Cooper Clark, which quickly faded into the heavy beat of Trevor Jackson, we were transported to the damp darkness that was the Topman Design lair Models emerged from the shadows in brogues and fisherman’s boots, trudging through shallow puddles that stretched along the…

  4. LCM: REVIEWING AGI & SAM AW14

    Date 15 Apr 2015
    Referred to as a “deeply personal” collection for Agi & Sam, this season the designers shrugged off any expectations of vibrant and dapper eclecticism, presenting a new point of view inspired by Agi’s recent travels. Titled Watu nguvu, meaning “people power” in Swahili, Agi & Sam Autumn/Winter 2014 called us to action by…

  5. LCM: REVIEWING TOPMAN DESIGN SS15

    Date 15 Apr 2015
    A contrast to last season’s industrial monochrome, TOPMAN Design’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection was a playful and vibrant hybrid of 1970’s Woodstock and 1990’s Brit Pop. Bell-bottom trousers, sharp tailoring, Gallagher-inspired Parkas, and psychedelic prints all came together in an extremely relevant collision at the height of music festival season, with Bonnaroo…

  6. LCM: REVIEWING RICHARD NICOLL SS15

    Date 15 Apr 2015
    Presenting his self-described “special normal” collection, Richard Nicoll Spring/Summer 2015 was minimal, un-ironed, lightweight and effortless Image: Richard Nicoll. Juxtaposing show notes such as “utalitarian elegance” and “innovative familiarity” gave an early indication of Nicoll’s fusion of elements and mastering of normcore for this season. Although clean whites and metallics were dominant at…

  7. LCM: REVIEWING LOU DALTON SS15

    Date 15 Apr 2015
    Following the goal to create menswear for the current consumer, Lou Dalton‘s Spring/Summer 2015 collection was all about control Image: Lou Dalton. This season designer Louise Dalton chose to focus on suiting, but not as you know it, drawing inspiration equally from both military attire and sportswear. At first, bright injections…

  8. LCM: REVIEWING DKNY SS15

    Date 15 Apr 2015
    Presented in London for the first time, DKNY‘s Spring/Summer 2015 collection was “created for urbanites who can’t stand still.” And yet despite its temporary new home, the brand refused to forget its roots, offering a parade of styles created for the tough-mouthed residents of its true city at heart. Outfits echoed the…

  9. LCM: REVIEWING GIEVES & HAWKES SS15

    Date 15 Apr 2015
    Quintessentially English brand, Gieves & Hawkes, gently splashed waves of Summer nostalgia for the British coastline in its Spring/Summer 2015 collection earlier this week. Tones of ocean greens, marine blues, sand, and ivory transported us from an urban location to a different world in a collection that was as expectedly sophisticated as it was…

  10. LCM: REVIEWING J.W. ANDERSON SS15

    Date 15 Apr 2015
    This past Tuesday was a busy day for Jonathan Anderson. Not only did the designer launch a brand new e-commerce add-on to his website, but he also presented J.W. Anderson‘s Spring/Summer 2015 menswear line at 10 AM that morning. Dreamed a collection that “evolved to commandeer and pervert men’s traditional silhouettes,” this season’s…
