It’s been a rather slow London Fashion Week: Men’s for the 2018 spring/summer season. One, it’s the spring/summer season, which is traditionally a smaller season for both menswear designers and buyers due to the lessened selling time. There’s also the fact that there has been some big names missing from the schedule and there’s also the overlap with Pitti. But, all of this aside, there were still highlights from this season. Here’s a look at the bright spots of LFW:M’s 2018 spring/summer.Martine RoseMartine Rose is a designer that’s been showing since the days when menswear in London was a single day tacked onto the end of womenswear but it still remains one of the few London menswear designers who’ve weathered several storms. And collections like the latest 2018 spring/summer one show just why the designer has managed to not just last, but thrive. The range was a great blend of the avant-garde, the references (one graphic riffed on Nokia’s old logo) and the nods to the initiated in the use of the Nike Air Zoom Spridion, which is a shoe that’s very of the UK.
Mihara YasuhiroThe Japanese designer has brought a level of production expertise and sense of occasion not often seen in London’s shows. The clothes, while not as strong as last season, showed production expertise. Be it, the half-wrap jeans or the slip-on sneakers, it’s clear that Yasuhiro is just that much better at making clothing than most things on show at LFW:M.
Matthew MillerMatthew Miller improved on his pieces this year by using new materials, while quietly adding some new pieces to appease the long-term buyer who’s ready to try something new. Miller has become one of LFW:M’s safest hands which, while it may not be the most exciting compliment in the world, it is one of the highest.
Charles JeffreyJeffrey’s shows have become one of the highlights of each London Fashion Week Men’s, just as much for their theatre and spectacle as for the collections on display. This season, his first standalone show, was no different, and the eccentric and extra show was a useful burst of fun in what can at times be a very self-important weekend.
Liam HodgesLiam Hodges is seen as one of British fashion’s golden boys. His show this season showed why London turns out for him, as well as indicating some new directions for the designer and his brand. One new direction was the introduction of denim, which contributed to a more refined feeling for the collection, while another was the debut of his collaboration with FILA, with the footwear in particular being a particular highlight.
