London Collections: Men: highlights from the first day

Posted on

Bobby Abley

The young designer opened his collection, on the bill as part of the MAN show with frayed and ripped looks in gray. The sporty theme was highlighted with skate shoes (and models holding custom skateboards) while color entered via a restrained Hawaiian floral and more outlandish cartoon motifs. 

Liam Hodges

Also on the list of ones-to-watch at MAN was Liam Hodges who created an exciting collection inspired by a seemingly incongruous mix of New Age travelers and scout masters. Leather, denim and khaki were at the heart of things, with the sewn-on patches adding a fun touch. 

Richard Nicoll

Nicoll also went with a twist on alternative culture, serving up a “future hippie cyberpunk” collection. Bright metallics and minimalist cuts kept things futuristic, while the free-love vibe came from the geometric tie-dye prints and bright florals. 

Lou Dalton

Another emerging talent, Dalton showed off her tailoring background with a clean, sporty and restrained collection for Spring-Summer 2015. The stripped back palette was mostly monochrome with a range of toned down blues, reds and pinks.
