British style is notorious for a reason and many designers at London Fashion Week use it as a source of inspiration (just look at all the trench coats in Haizhen Wang’s new spring 2020 collection). And that includes not just womenswear but menswear as well.
LFW has always had a slightly different vibe than Mian, Paris, and New York, where most of the world’s luxury heritage brands present their collections. The English capital prides itself on being a creative hub for young designers who are not afraid to take risks and push the boundaries of fashion. And the result is fascinating.
This season, for menswear, a lot of them started off with wardrobe staples such as suits, trench coats, and tailored jackets but they were given a contemporary makeover—oversized patch pockets, neon colors, cropped silhouettes, and bold patterns. The end product still has that traditional British elegance to it but it also oozes a modern, edgy vibe.
