Menswear: top trends from London fashion week

Posted on

Roll-neck knitwear 

Topman Design made the most of this trend, sending out yards of chunkily knitted turtleneck sweaters in bright neons and dark tones with some intricate patterns. Pringle of Scotland toned down the colors on their knits, but provided contrast roll-neck sweaters with their blazers. 


There was very little fur in London (expect much more in Milan), so the luxe touch was provided by plenty of velvet on the runway. A. Sauvage and Rake both cut the material into stunning eveningwear options.


Basically present everywhere this season, double-breasted styles appeared on coats, casual jackets and formal suiting. Alexander McQueen was one of the many shows where the double-breasted coat was key, both in solid colors and with patterned gold prints. Hardy Amies and Gieves & Hawkes both used the cut effectively with their suiting. 


One of the key trends of the season. Appearing all over suits in its classic form at Richard James among others, tartan was also used to give a nod to London’s punk era at Casely-Hayford and McQueen. The print also appeared as a Kenyan check pattern at Agi & Sam.
