LC:M AW15

Rightly or wrongly, menswear has so often found itself falling short in the fashion press as the poor relation to its feminine counter-part. But with the menswear market now set to reach £16.4bn by 2018, isn’t it about time London Collections: Men received the attention and accolade it deserves?

Only in its fourth year, LC:M is a relatively infant newcomer to the fashion calendar, yet it has already managed to carve itself out as a founding platform for emerging British talent and unequivocal creativity.  

Whether it’s men becoming more daring and confident with their wardrobe choices, or the fact there is increasing transparency in the industry enabling us to be more aware of how and where things are made influencing our perceptions of quality and willingness to spend, menswear is becoming a much more serious game. And knitwear is no exception.

Here’s our pick of the knits for AW15 courtesy of LC:M.

 

Shapes and sharks and shopping bags 

Kit Neale, Christopher Raeburn, Christopher Shannon

Kit Neale, Christopher Raeburn and Christopher Shannon were all about the bright, the fun and the provocative with boldly emblazoned intarsia sweaters.

 

All knit errthing

Moschino, Joseph, Sibling

Knitted two pieces were all the range at Moschino, Joseph and Sibling, with Joseph deserving an extra mention for services to knitwear with their collection featuring a range of beautiful patchwork Fair Isle sweaters, chunky rib cardigans and fine knit V-neck jumpers.

 

Long-line knits

Astrid Anderson, Lou Dalton, Oliver Spencer

Oversized knits just became supersized knits. Extra large, extra long and extra funky were the vibe at Astrid Anderson, Lou Dalton and Oliver Spencer. 

 

Knits on knits on knits

YMC, Katie Eary, Coach

YMC, Katie Eary and Coach took layering to the next level with scarves, hats, cardigans and sweaters. Come rain, wind or blizzard this winter, there’ll be plenty of mohair and cable knits on hand to wrap up!

 

Collars up

E. Tautz, J W Anderson, Pringle

Roll-necks were the order at E. Tautz, J W Anderson and Pringle of Scotland, and judging by these sweaters, the trend is going to be huge.
