LC:M S/S16 // Thomas Pink

It’s been just a little over a week since I returned from my trip to London Collections: Men – it was such an eye-opening experience and even more so the second time around. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it.

One of my favourite showcases took place in the Institute of Contemporary Arts,

LC:M A/W15 // SANKUANZ Presented by GQ China

So British Fashion Council has recently posted the very much anticipated dates and full schedule of London Collections: Men S/S16 (12 – 15 June), at which I fully intend to be present. Of all the plans I have lined up for the next couple of months, I have to say this is probably the one I’m most excited by.

 

As many of you may remember, I was invited to several shows last season and I have followed up my attendance with a few write-ups in January but to celebrate my upcoming second season at one of the most important events in the menswear calender, I have just one more show review I want to share with you guys… and what better day to do it than #throwbackthursday? So come with me and I’ll show you around the weird and wonderful world of SANKUANZ.

Having enjoyed success domestically with his mainline womenswear, Shangguang has teamed up with local young creatives to go global. The project’s vision is centred all on youth – youth of today, youth of different cultures and backgrounds.

LC:M A/W15 // Todd Lynn

Deep into my first night at London Collections: Men A/W15, I attended Todd Lynn’s show at Victoria House Basement. The show was cued start by a live Punk band, to which the models marched – perfect choice of music, I must add.
