London Fashion Week Men’s Marked The Return Of Tailoring To Street Style
London sets the tone for the fashion month
For countless seasons, the street style scene during the fashion week circuit has largely been dominated by sport luxe silhouettes, designer bags and in recent years, ugly sneakers. Proving all you need to stand out off the runway was a fluorescent bomber jacket and pair of Balenciaga Triple S kicks, the turn of the decade has ushered in more than a handful of failed new years resolutions. As Fashion Week Men’s soon takes to Paris and Milan, London has set the tone for trending street style this season, with tailoring taking the sartorial stage.
Britain’s most celebrated designers took to the runway to present Autumn/Winter 2020 and off the runway, editors, influencers and buyers were seen braving the blistering cold with expert layering. Lightweight knits peaked under oversized blazers and floor-length coats, and crisp tailored pants were cropped to reveal crew socks – ankle freezers no exception is sub zero temperatures. The departure from streetwear however did not span too far, as sneakers and cross body bags finished off guest’s looks, a nod to fashion’s current affinity with sporting attire.
On the runway, this was reflected by the likes of Feng Chen Wang, Bianca Saunders and Studio Alch as forthcoming collections fused versatile, classic styles with the bold sensibilities of its designers.
