3 Trends To Take Away from London Collections: Men

With the whirlwind that is London Collections: Men being officially over, the menswear season is well underway. From the Savile Row suits that we’ve come to expect to a whole whack of abstract ideas that only a creative hub like London can provide, there’s been a variety of beautiful, strange and just plain wacky clothes come down the runway. Filtering these ideas down, here are our three consistent takeaways from Fall/Winter 2015.

Skinny No More

While Spring/Summer 2015 began the shift towards a wider silhouette, this season made it official. Designers such as Craig Green, Rory Mooney & E.Tautz presented wide-legged trousers in a variety of fabrics and colors. With men taking the slim silhouette too literal often wearing jeans and trousers too tight, this is a welcome shift.

Orange is Back

Although Marsala (earthy wine red) might be the official Pantone color of 2015, we saw plenty of highlighter orange on the runway on topcoats, bomber jackets and trousers. Although not the most traditional color for the colder months, we feel this is a great color to stand out and add character to the sea of neutrals you’d otherwise be wearing next winter.

Shearling Everything

By far the most consistent trend of the London Collections was the seasonal-appropriate use of shearling. Showing up on the runways of Burberry, Coach and Margaret Howell on jacket patches, collars and full coats it was unavoidable and for good reason. Warm, luxurious and durable, shearling is one of those fabric’s that instantly add an oomph to your outfit. With so many designers on board this is a look we can’t wait to wear next winter.
