This week I attended London Collection: Men AW14, a three day menswear event equivalent to fashion week which is now in its fourth season.
Not knowing what to expect first up was Astrid Andersen, the Danish graduate of the Royal College of Art, Astrid is famous for creating sports clothing using hip –hop references whilst using more feminine materials and colours such as baby blue lace.
As the show kicked off it did not let down, with most of the models wearing Astrids classic ‘Astrid’ logo-ed tops it the blue lace overlays tops that really stood out. Along with tracksuits in high quality Italian wool, Astrid seems to make luxury street style work.
Day 2 began at the Huntergather presentation. Huntergather is a fairly new concept and involves a creative community discovered by David Bradshaw who together collaborated on their collection.
Now this show had a different vibe, the clothes were more tailored and incorporated classic styles such as a James Dean styled bomber jacket and cable knit jumpers, their style seemed to be a mix of Ralph Lauren + All Saints.
If you feel inspired to be part of the menswear revolution, why not have a bespoke suit or shirt made?
