London Collections: Men AW15 Day 3 Round Up
Here’s our favourite shows, presentations and looks from Day 3 of LC:M AW15.
Show Of The Day: Richard James
Visually I loved Moschino but as a menswear purist I really did like Richard James Collection. I really did admire the mix of corduroy, silk, wool and velvet used amongst the showcase combining vibrant reds and greens with rich caramels and browns. Stand out piece had to be the Peruvian poncho
Outfit Of The Day: Oliver Cheshire
This is becoming a regular occurrence now but it had to be said Oli nailed it with his outfit yesterday. Put aside the obvious being the amazing Belstaff shearling jacket Mr Cheshire was wearing and admire the simple colour combination of the caramel roll neck and the pure 70’s swagger of those shades.
Presentation Of The Day: Gieves & Hawkes
Again a tough one to call. Myself and the MFM team were treated to an array of high quality presentations yesterday such as Joseph, Duchamp, Belstaff and Dunhill. For me though Jason Basmajian’s 45 piece tailoring masterclass at Gieves and Hawkes was my personal highlight. The collection as a whole was a lot more laid back than the last AW offering but still as effective. Basmajian showed is gents how to dress up and dress down with minimum fuss and maximum exposure. I also was a big fan of the Patrick Bateman style slick hair stance.
Statement Footwear Of The Day: Paul Sloanes
Special mention to Pretty Green ambassador Mr Paul Sloanes who by a country mile had the best footwear I’ve seen on at LCM theses past three days. Leopard print driving shoes from the SS15 Pretty Green collection. One word. Cool.
