London menswear: highlights from J.W. Anderson, Pringle, and more
Jan 12, 2015
The London Collections: Men kicked off on Friday, starting a season of Fall/Winter 2015 menswear. Here are three of the highlights from this weekend.
Agi & Sam
The London design duo Agi Mdumulla and Sam Cotton pulled something of a 180° turn on the pared back palette of their last collection, with a bright, angular, asymmetric look at Fall/Winter 2015. Inside-out pieces came with splashes of color, and baggy coats and pants were joined by patchwork knits, and chunky digital print mittens. Some models also wore Lego masks to highlight the playful direction the Dalston-based designers were channeling.
Jonathan Anderson has been slowly bringing together his men's and womenswear collections, and this latest show from the Northern Ireland born designer was no different. Plenty of touches were borrowed from his recent Pre-Fall 2015 women's line, including the open flares on the pants, the abstract and art deco floral decorative buttons, and the quirky yet practical lapels. Walking on a violet runway, Anderson's models wore knit chokers, and eyelet perforated loafers with their 1970s inspired looks.
Pringle of Scotland
Now a couple of years into his job with the Scottish brand, Italian designer Massimo Nicosia is finding his groove. As usual it was all about the knits here, which were paired with slim-cut tailored trousers with a slight turn-up and a series of great outerwear pieces, all pulled together in a pared-back autumnal palette. Footwear was focused on utility and Chelsea boots with rubber galoshes.
