The third and final day of the London Collections shows was filled with more shows and presentations, from established brands and new designers. Here is a run through of some of the great things I saw.
Agi & Sam
A stark black and white collection replaced the colour that we are so used to from Agi & Sam. The basics were mixed with African prints. Sharp, focused and political.
Jermyn Street St James
The morning breakfast presentation, held at Fortnums & Mason showcased the breadth of talent and design held in the small corner of London. Flagships stores from menswear stalwarts like Lock & Co, and Turnbell & Asser showed several tempting pieces. Images include hats from Lock & Co, underwear from Sunspel and Emma Willis ties.
Pringle of Scotland
Kent and Curwen
Burberry went bohemian this season, blending masculine and feminine influences together to create a light, breezy and wearable wardrobe. Models wore trousers and trench coats, with string vests and printed silk scarves thrown over the shoulder. Inspired by art, and the bohemian artist, Christopher Bailey's new collection was full of covetable pieces.
This collection was a complete change from everything else shown at LCM. Fun, heavy on prints and clashing prints and colours, the punk influence was evident but even the interesting hair on the models did not distract from some great pieces. Special mention to the oversize printed sweater above
Baartmans & Siegel
Adrien Sauvage's collection had the quality that all designers search for when working on a collation - desirability. This was another collection where every item was highly covetable. Undeniably young. sartorial and in keeping with the Dress Easy philosophy of the brand. I particularly loved the teddy boy and rocker influences seen in items such as the gorgeous green oversize coat and printed blazers worn with velvet trousers.
The last day of LCM ended with a great party thrown by the British Fashion Council and River Island, celebrating fashion films. Screenings films from Alex Mattsson and Palmer// Harding and with some great guest speakers, the above film created by Joseph Turvey x River Island Design Forum deserves a special mention, as a standout piece.
