LCM: Burberry Prorsum AW14
The highlight of London Collections: Men’s final day was undoubtedly the Burberry Prorsum menswear presentation in Hyde Park. Designer Christopher Bailey’s autumn/winter 2014 collection featured both neutral solid tones with colorful patterns and prints on over-sized silk scarves, man bags and overcoats.
In a nod to the luxury label’s British heritage according to the Daily Mail, many of the pieces were emblazoned with iconic London imagery, such as the skyline and maps of city streets.

Part of the final day of London Collections: Men, Oliver Spencer’s autumn/winter 2014 collection featured the designer’s passion of combining modern and classic styles.

The collection is said to have been influenced by “Purism, architecture and London’s ever-evolving subcultures”, and Mr. Spencer’s key pieces include the Shawl Collar Donegal Jacket, Lightweight Nylon Mac, Judo Pants and the Caramel Epsom Coat.

LCM: Hackett London AW14 – Welcome To The Hotel Hackett
London Collections: Men just wrapped up day two of the bi-annual menswear presentations, and Hackett London won me over for their travel inspired autumn/winter 2014 collection. Dubbing the presentation, ‘The Hotel Hackett’, the styles were said to be a “roll call of characters that you might encounter in the lobby of a stylish hotel. These characters include the CEO, the explorer, the travel photographer, the hunter and the graduate.
A couple of the styles were worn by ‘real men’ to bring the concept of the show to life. Among the professional models in all sorts of knitwear, suits, overcoats, blazers and beautiful luggage and bags, British actors Jack Fox and Henry Lloyd Hughes (above) and former international rugby star Thom Evans (though to be fair, he does model in real life) were present, with Jeremy Hackett closing out the show.

LCM: Topman Design AW14
One of the British menswear brands who kicked off the London Collections: Men today was Topman, who gave us some rainy realness (literally).
