Back at the beginning of the year, London Fashion Week Men’s AW17 took place, bringing with it bright block colours and luxurious leather jackets. Here are just four of the top trends straight off of the LFW Men’s autumn/winter runway.
With strong contenders from Topman, J.W.Anderson and Christopher Shannon, neon shades of yellow, orange, green and yellow (sometimes all together on the same garment!) were strongly featured in this month’s collections, often teamed with grey trousers. Not for the shy and retiring, the fluorescent garments seen on the catwalk certainly draw a lot of attention.
Wide leg trousers
Slim fit trousers are now a thing of the past! This season is all about wide cuts; from cropped cargos to flowing, full-length slacks, this is a striking step in men’s fashion. With baggy trousers modelling in the Craig Green, Liam Hodges and Casely-Hayford collections to name a few, you can certainly expect to see more of them filtering into the high street fashion scene.
Crop tops for men may seem unusual but they were heavily featured in several runway shows during London Fashion Week Men’s, catching the eyes of those sitting on the front row and beyond. With knitted tank tops from Xander Zhou and Katie Eary and high cut hoodies from Bobby Abley, LFW Men’s showcased just how diverse this style can be.
Patchwork colour blocking was another colourful trend to take over the catwalks of LFW Men’s at the beginning of the month. Sometimes incorporating the aforementioned fluorescent trend, colour blocking is dynamic and daring. This season saw the style tackled by the likes of Alex Mullins, Lou Dalton and Topman.
