It was a big day for fashion in London yesterday as many of the pieces from the Men's London Collections for Autumn/Winter 2014 were unveiled at shows across the city. The first day is always an exciting one and although there are still several shows left, we are already seeing a few trends emerging.
Loose tailoring is back
Lou Dalton, Topman, Lea Roach, Jonathon Saunders and Richard Nicoll were just some of the designers showcasing their latest threads on the catwalk.
As you can see from the photos, skinny jeans have been replaced by wide trouser legs and loose tailoring is back with a vengeance.
The Beau Homme presentation featured a selection of trousers in bright autumnal colours paired with grey overcoats, sweaters and blazers.
This autumn, men will be sporting skirted blazers and tops (really!), according to the MAN show, which featured a layered blazer with a skirt style hemline. Many of the designers are adopting an androgynous style, playing with feminine silhouettes and designs.
Still to come
Graphic lines and prints were also been big in this year's shows with both Jonathon Saunders and Beau Homme showcasing a variety of statement ensembles using their striking designs. Needless to say, boys will not look boring this September!
There are still plenty of shows to go today and tomorrow, jam packed with talent. Today we will see what Nicole Farhi, Alexander McQueen and Christopher Kane have to offer and tomorrow Pringle of Scotland, Paul Smith, Kent & Curwen and Tom Ford will be working their magic on the catwalk.
The shows have already attracted a whole host of VIPS and celebrities. We have an idea what the new Autumn/Winter collection is going to look like, but we have no doubt there will be a few surprises.
