London Fashion Week Men’s is now in its 12th season, and oh has it come of age. The Spring/Summer '19 instalment showcased both homegrown talent and international creativity in a proclamation that confidently pushed the boundaries of creative and visual expression.
There was the likes of A-Cold-Wall* featuring haunting Mad Max-esque boys caked in cement and sporting hoods, where the designer Samuel Ross examined themes of ‘Human. Form. Structure’, and models were carried in mathematical shapes ultimately sporting streetwear.

Xander Zhou, a designer at the forefront of Chinese talent explored the supernatural and space-age future by parading a collection of human/alien boys sporting jackets, rugby and office shirts, but with a dystopian twist. Contact lenses and fibre optic makeup reinforced his message.
Liam Hodges delivered a Las Vegas aesthetic in his presentation of ‘Slick Trash’. The clothes [jackets, waistcoats, shorts, even socks] were for the most part easy-wear and inundated with leopard print, florals, check or flames; and an underlying retro theme prevailed.
