The Men’s London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018 ran from January 5 to 8 and had David Beckham in attendance. British fashion, as always, has an influx of staple statements from the street style to the runway. For a country that had produced Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, it is clear that when it comes to fashion, London is a force to reckon.

Men kick off the fashion week for all fashion capitals – London, Milan, Paris and New York. Here are some things to know about the London Fashion Week Men 2018.

STREET STYLE

The winter weather over there called for layering. A colourful, edgy array of thoughtful styles flooded the street. One thing with London is that the style is less preppy and more carefree. There is a tinge of rebelliousness that swept through the street with the heavy accessories and tattoos complementing the clothes.

RUNWAY LOOKS

Oversized layering dominated the runway. Visually, the collections fell on two sections ready-to-wear and avant-garde.

The ready to wear clothes like the collection of Astrid Anderson which focused more on functionality rather than aesthetics. His incorporations of plaid checkers in street and sportswear were refreshing.

For Alex Mullins, he chose to explore the unrestricted art of tye and dye, with the mixture of colours that almost defied the unofficial rule of winter colours – dark shades.

In London it’s not just about fashion, it’s also about art and theatre.
