Following New York Fashion Week Men’s earlier this month, the twice-yearly event took to the city of London for the next instalment of Spring/Summer 2020. Outside, the streets were filled with stylish show goers donned in oversized outerwear and androgynous themes, inside, the presentations were mirrored with current trends as well as new style cues.
London Fashion Week – particularly its Men’s counterpart – is known for a packed schedule of niche labels and up-and-coming designers, and this year was no different. Over four days, NEWGEN Pop-Up Showrooms showcased the latest emerging fashion talent, while design heavyweights Alexander McQueen, Craig Green and A-COLD-WALL* added star factor to the line up.
Amongst the slew of presentations, catwalks and exclusive events, oversized silhouettes acted as a key trend element during the past week. In turn, the theme of androgynous and unisex style cemented its position for SS/20 and cuts the barrier between womenswear and menswear. While garments are made more accessible for the genderless sphere, less dominant trends for the new season include fluorescent orange and yellow, against a strong presence of earthy colours.
Alexander McQueen presented the perfect connection between men and women, and gave life to the term ‘hybrid’. Craig Green showed his multi-faceted personality through an intersected and intense perception of organic and synthetic fabrication, while up-and-comer Edward Crutchley paid homage to nineties cuts – the way the 9 to 5 uniform used to be – but adapted the style with a modern vision. Elsewhere, the likes of Band Of Outsiders boasted a collection of linen and fun prints and contrastingly Art School put forward moody pieces that can only be described as outside your comfort zone.
