London Collections Men (LCM) saw some of the coolest looks for Spring Summer 17. Designers referenced beach surfers, ’60s rockstars and androgyny. Looks like the souvenir bomber jackets aren’t going out anytime soon.
Jeremy Scott at Moschino show in L.A. brought the ’60s back peppered with a lot of groovy references. The king of kitsch played with psychedelic florals and animal prints seen on souvenir bomber jackets, pantsuits, bermuda shorts and speedos.
JW Anderson’s runway was like a dress-up box with a child-like mash-up of oversized silhouettes, elongated trousers, goggles and ultra-feminine handbags.
Topman Design’s boys had a weather-beaten face and evoked a beachy vibe in fruity pastels, seagulls print Hawaiian shirts, micro shorts and souvenir jackets. Making a multi-sensory assault was Craig Green’s showcasing ensembles which were artfully deconstructed – slashed at the shoulders, thighs and sleeves. It was an interplay of colours, patterns and construction techniques.
Alexander McQueen referenced the Indian maharajas and married the artisanal painterly prints with British precise tailoring. The addition of the white sneakers made the looks of-the-moment.
