Sportswear & Gypsies At London Fashion Week

I'm in the process of writing a london fashion week menswear review for a magazine, but wanted to share some thoughts here aswell. Wednesday was the perfect illustration of how the modern man has electrified into senses of dare, adventure, and the breaking down of boundaries. trends and characters fused together on the runway landscape, such as E Tautz's 'fisherman in the city' vibe I illusioned, and Christopher Shannon's bohemian prints in the city sportswear sphere. I loved the rustic and rural pallete, where the countryside influence found its way into gritty wool trousers with a jogger angle. Quilted farmer jackets also blasted out intense black colour for a striking urban feel, and carnival patchwork lined the white shirts that would be perfect for the party monster crowd. other highlights of the day included James Long's fuzzy and distressed mohair with quirky romantic tweed blazers, and J W Anderson's high waisted business trousers. I've posted some photos below, alongside the outfit detail I wore myself. I channeled a 70's bohemian boy with slight gothic androgony. They were taken by my blogging friend at www.girlalamode.co.uk

  4. Fusion clothing is the best, It's just as delicious as fusion food, and really you get the best of a bit everything. I'm especially fond of the mauve tweed jacket though the look as a whole is not as experimental as the others posted.
