London Collections Men’s week has positioned itself as one of the most important fashion weeks in the menswear industry. We can contribute this to the increase of popular interest for men’s high fashion.
So stop wishing your boyfriend dressed with the latest fashion. Here is a compilation of stand out trends from LCM SS16; I’ve put together that are not only innovative, but I feel they can perfectly transition from the runway to the streets.
Kimonos & Jumpsuits
It was about time! This I feel have been the “it” item for women in the last years. I’ve seen all kinds of styles and colors with everyone wearing it from my mom to the girls I meet at the clubs. Now it’s time for men to own the one piece trend. Notice the Kimono influence. I really can’t wait to see this in stores…

If you don’t have a blue suit for summer, you must get one. i think it’s the most versatile color suit you can own for summer. Dark enough for any occasion and looks great with any lighter tone. Here is a showdown of what’s trending with blue suits…
Oliver Spencer / Tiger of Sweden
Richard James & Alexander McQueen
Reinvention of Prints for Men
To me this is the stand out from this LCM. I would have never guessed that I would like animal print mixed with vibrant colors or leather…Like Coach showcased (See my review here). With no doubt in my mind, I would wear any of these outfits!
Coach & Christopher Kane

As most guys I love comfortability but we know that most fashion forward brands prefer “the fitter, the better”. This is why everytime I come across loose pants or shorts, my thick runner legs and everything around them cannot be more excited to have some extra room for themselves.
Notice J.W. Anderson red shoes. They’ve made a big buzz because the inspiration behind them are heels! Just without the actual heel.
