Think punk, sparkles and... ice cream.
Vogue Runway's womenswear reviewers have been getting together at the end of Fashion Week for lively discussions of the shows for a couple of seasons now. Today, we asked our menswear reviewers to... weigh in on part one of the Fall 2017 men's collections. Despite auguries to the contrary, London was livelier than ever. Sarah Mower, Chief Fashion Critic Here's one of my topmost enjoyable things that happened in London Fashion Week Men's: listening to the sparkly, bright-eyed 22-year-old Eden Loweth talking to me about "being on the trans scale," while watching a choreographed pretend classroom lesson where lots of friends of his age, some of them who'd flown from New York, acted out their own various stages of transition, wearing dresses and skirt suits. "This is the very first time she's...
Although the final day of London Fashion Week Men's boasted a strong schedule of British big-hitters -- including the anticipated comeback of Dame Vivienne Westwood -- it was some of the lesser... heralded overseas designers that brought some of the biggest reactions. John Lawrence Sullivan's high-octane midday show saw a German-inspired collection sent down the runway to the sound of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus." Japanese designer Arashi Yanagawa marked his own return to European runways with his sharp tailoring, striking palettes and eye-catching slogans -- Massiv!, Provocativ! -- that adorned sweaters, knits and accessories, while zipper embellishments and high-shine fabrics added directional appeal. Across the road at Somerset House, Qasimi's presentation brought a touch of the Middle...
The autumn/winter 2017/18 menswear shows that kicked off on January 6 have given us the season's first potential trends, with oversized cuts, bright colors, military inspiration and nods to the 1990s.
Clothing has always been political--what we wear and how we wear it has been a social issue since before the ancient Greeks--but in the current climate of international chaos, garments have taken on... new meaning, able to show off in an instant the wearer's political point of view. Nowhere has that been more obvious than at the menswear shows in London this week, where designers new and old have put political messaging front and center on the runways. The most startling commentary came early on in the week, when MAN designer Charles Jeffrey presented looks that walked through the history of British fashion. In the mix were three gigantic papier-mâché figures designed by Gary Card, the most poignant of which came painted with with segments of the Stars and Stripes and of the Union Jack....
Craig Green, the newly crowned British menswear designer of the year, took to the runways of London in an epic showing. Elaborate in seemingly all facets of design -- silhouettes, straps, prints,... colors, fabrics etc. -- Green creates his 2017 Fall/Winter collection by taking everyday essentials like jackets, trousers and hats and reinterprets them in a distinct, highly unique manner. Eclectic outerwear catches the eye with many sporting quirky elements, such as braided waist ties, flowing straps and baroque-style prints.
In the lead up to Day 3 of London Fashion Week Men's, we present our latest installment of Streetsnaps from the English capital. Heavy layering was the name of the game for the attendees of Astrid... Andersen, A-COLD-WALL*, Casely-Hayford, Tourne de Transmission, Agi & Sam and Cottweiler shows as they braced the cooling temperatures. Given the general rise in prominence of streetwear in recent years, we were unsurprised to spot pieces from Supreme, Thrasher and Alyx mixed in with a fair share of high-brow pieces. Wool overcoats, leather biker jackets, MA-1 jackets and cozy accessories could be found readily as well, while the footwear of choice ranged from casual sneakers to more rugged boots. Peruse through the gallery above for the latest looks and stay tuned for more coverage from London...
On what proved a grey, cloud-covered day two of London Fashion Week Men's, a vivid and typically eclectic series of shows had the effect of lighting up the capital. With a packed schedule of... presentations split across multiple central London venues, the crowd zigzagged between venues and showrooms to avoid the inevitable clashes. The early show at E.Tautz provided a sleek, deconstructed take on tailoring with tactile woollen pieces sitting alongside wide-legged pleated trousers and heritage tweed outerwear in a confident show from Patrick Grant's Savile Row label. Shownotes pointed to scarecrows as inspiration -- think check shirts and off-kilter hats -- while whimsical details including smock necklines and popper fastenings added interest within the collection's muted color palette. Lou...

Day one at London Fashion Week Men's 2017 Fall/Winter has come to an end, but there are still some shows we haven't covered that are deserving of a second look. Our first choice is Per Götesson, who... was part of the MAN show alongside Feng Chen Wang and Charles Jeffrey Loverboy. The theme around Götesson's collection was sleep and the range featured loose takes on pyjama shirts, slouchy denim and a new take on traditional tartan. Next up is Alex Mullins, who held a runway show this season. The official theme of Mullins' collection was Sunday living, with jackets using graphics from '90s VHS tapes. The standouts from the range were the two-tone jackets, box-check jackets alongside half-check-half-denim trousers and a standout light-pink bomber. The last noteworthy show of the day was Craig...
