The summer season of men’s fashion has officially kicked off with London Collections: Men. The event, which ran from June 9-13, is often viewed as the most fashion forward of the men’s weeks. Milan’s Pitti Uomo is a week centered around dapper style while New York Fashion Week Men’s is still working to establish an overall identity. But LC:M is a stage for some of the industry’s most adventurous designers. This is never more apparent than in the style of the week’s show attendees. If you aspire to echo the most stylish men of the London streets, these five trends are a must.
Rock Your Favorite Concert Tee
Vetements made it cool to wear band t-shirts again. And judging by the frenzy over celebrity musicians’ official merchandise, like Justin Bieber’s Purpose Pop-up Shop and Kanye West’s Life Of Pablo Pop-up Shop, the trend is here to stay. Tons of fashion fans were photographed in band tees from legendary groups like Nirvana. The fashion elite have officially given you permission to fetch your favorite old band t-shirt from the depths of your closet.
Experiment With Color
For some time now, streetwear has focused on dark and neutral colors. But if the style warriors of London are any indication, bright colors are back in a big way. From deep rich blues to fluorescent yellows, no color is off limits. Don’t be afraid to add in a splash of your favorite bright hue to liven up your look.
Logos Are Back
Menswear walked away from heavy branding and logos in recent years. But the last six months have seen a return to big, bold lettering. Fashion hipsters are no longer against using their backs as shrines to their favorite labels. Our
Phys Ed Crewneck and NYC Tokyo Crewneck T-shirts will help you pull off one of the biggest LC:M style moves of the season.
The skinny jean isn’t dead, but its presence was greatly reduced. In step with recent men’s seasons, street style has gravitated toward straight and relaxed fits. The stylish edge comes from distressing, ripping, patchwork, and exaggerated cuffing.
Out of This World Accessories
Hood By Air’s runway shows are known for futuristic and industrial accessories that often seem impossible to pull off in real life. Think again. Some of the most daring London fashion fans showed up in leather face masks, oversized chains, and decorative buttons. There’s no limit to experimentation.
While LC:M is an open stage for some of the industry’s biggest risks, street style is where the real daredevils come to shine.
