London Fashion Week Men’s showcases the finest of the British menswear market, from emerging talent and streetwear to heritage brands and Savile Row tailoring. Last Friday saw the start of LFWM A/w 2018 and the schedule was more jam-packed than ever with shows, presentations, installations and events and featured more tailoring, trousers and top hats (maybe) than you can throw a Church’s shoe at.

From British heritage to emerging labels and vibrant street-wear brands, the twelfth edition of the London menswear showcase paid homage to the ever-expanding creativity of the capital and welcomed the very best international creatives and design talent.

‘The fifth anniversary of London Fashion Week Men’s has been as surprising as it has been exhausting. With over 100 events, runway shows, presentations, installations, cocktail parties, dinners and full-on raves, #LFWM once again proved that London has more stamina that any other fashion capital.” – Dylan Jones, Chair of LFWM

London’s Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries, Justine Simons, said,

“From world-class designers and established brands to emerging talent and independent boutiques, our great city can easily lay claim to being one of the big four fashion capitals of the world, alongside Paris, Milan and New York. Nowhere is this clearer than at London Fashion Week Men’s, which attracts the crème de la crème of international designer talent, media and business leaders, everywhere from Mexico to Manchester.

The past week has showcased exactly why our fashion industry is a global trailblazer and one that contributes a staggering amount to our city’s economy every year. Full of innovation, imagination and style, the fifth anniversary of LFWM has once again presented London at its open, global and creative best.”

As for the shows, they have been extraordinary, from the psychedelic to the formal, from Charles Jeffrey and MAN to the best of Savile Row, and from Dunhill and Richard James to Vivienne Westwood.

Highlights included the eagerly anticipated second collection from Tinie Tempah’s label What We Wear, wistful tailoring from Grace Wales Bonner and a special Kent & Curwen luncheon presentation hosted by creative director Daniel Kearns and David Beckham.

The emerging designers from London varied from avant-garde to British bohemian were full of innovation, imagination and style and didn’t disappoint. Some made their way through the MAN talent incubator, some started solo after school.
