There was not a lot of new names making their appearance at London Collections: Men this year. Yet, the excitement was real and coming from the Newgen, all these boys & girls who know how to reinvent British Fashion season after season. Menswear is transcended to another level with a hint of underground & a touch of diversity. One major thread of these collections was the street takeover on the catwalks just like in the 80s. Designers took the street codes for themselves and imagined brand new ones. As usual, it has been very hard to distinguish and highlight 5 designers, 5 collections and, of course, we could have added Grace Wales Bonner, Matthew Miller or Craig Green but be sure, we'll write about them sooner or later!
This Top 5 is nothing but the result of the most creative, the most disturbing, the most radical Autumn Winter 16 collections!
