Day 1 at London Collections: Men

To begin with, I'm just going to say that I love the pure talent of designers when it comes to London Fashion, and by the looks of day 1 at London Collections: Men I was sure I would remain feeling this way for another season. Throughout this post I will talk about upcoming trends for A/W 2014 from my favoutite designers year after year in London.

A trend that I seen from the likes of Lou Dalton was a trend, that I'm pretty sure has been in-season since S/S 2013 and that is camouflage. What I love about the way Lou Dalton has incorporated this camouflage is the pattern break between the two block colours of the jumpers and the jeans.

My second trend report from day 1 was the classic Duffle Coat, which I remember was seen a lot during last year's Saint Laurent collection. This year however, it was seen multiple times at the Topman show (A show which I loved) it was seen multiple times in dark colours and PVC material. And something that is a must to mention about the Topman show is the epic-raining-finale. (see end of post)

Another trend at Topman was of course another classic, the heavyweight roll-neck jumper.

Another trend which is nice to see in Autumn and Winter months is a POP! of colour, which was seen at Richard Nicoll. Blues, Greens, Reds and Yellows were the front runners of the colour palette.

My final trend from day 1 at London Collections is black. Black was key at Matthew Miller, being responsible for the majority of looks. What I liked about this collection was how varied the one colour was, I mean it was seen texturised, for jumpers, simple tees, biker jackets, bomber jackets, blazers, capes, cropped trousers (I know yeah...WOW). Honestly Matthew Miller is a fashion show I haven't  really took that much notice of over the years, now I am beginning think why I haven't took notice of his work, this season was a truly great collection.
