LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN FW16 | DAY 1

LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN FW16 | DAY 1

Believe it or not, It has been my first time ever in London and I have to admit that I chose quite a good time to do it: London Collections Men! That’s where the crazy menswear fashion week circus begins. The city is known for pushing young designers, but is also the proud home of some established fashion houses like Alexander McQueen, Burberry or Moschino. Lucky enough we found a great flat in Shoreditch, where you could literally feel the vibe when stepping outside the door – Street art, bars, cool people… You had it all!

We started day 1 with the AW16 runway show of Tiger of Sweden, that has been hosted at a great gallery space in Marylebone, North-West London. From there we moved further to visit the showroom of Mounir Ghazi, a good friend of mine who presented his first collection. At this point I also met Tino Kamal, aspiring UK rapper and one of the craziest dudes I‘ve met in a long time. Just gotta love his energy and first and foremost his look. Don’t worry, I might post a portrait of him in a couple of weeks!

Showroom hopping continued at the Mr. Porter Showroom, where six hot brands from Japan were spotlighted. Among them, I totally had a crush on Aloye’s graphic tee collection, that was simple but significant. Quick note on my outfit: It was all about leather and a bright red sweater from Diesel’s SS16 collection.
