The latest London Fashion Week Men's sets the bar for the Spring/Summer 2019 men's shows around the world. Here are the biggest new season menswear trends from the catwalks in the nation's capital.
Between John Lawrence Sullivan’s slim-cut leather biker suits, long-line leather overcoats and tiny nineties-style specs and Daniel W Fletcher’s slim-cut and be-harnessed trenches and skinny black tailored pieces the looks had strong references from 90s movies and trends .
From the movie ‘Interview with a vampire’ to ‘Matrix, we have seen it all and especially in Matthew Miller show when the street style looks have been combine with nylon-metallic elements and fabric.
Then it was all about relaxed tailoring.
From tailored tracksuit bottoms and smart khaki pieces to oversized blazers combined with wide trousers or skinny shorts, search Qasimi SS19 for more of the looks, we have seen from villagers country looks ( see Lou Dalton or Wood Wood presentations) to the vampires and the huntsmen.
More oriental vibes with floral or embelished ''versace'' inspired patterns and aesthetic, and relaxed shirt combinations you could see in shows like Oliver Spencer and Edward Crutchley. (The music background supported the presentations and the fashion 'journey')
I know we should note all the bright colours and combinations for the spring/summer season but 2019 seems to be quite dark and moody. The strongest colour pallet within the collections was the burgundy - wine red - purple - cloud pink..sh one in all the tones and shades. Designers like Oliver Spencer or Ben Sherman used it in almost all the looks and others kept it more specific but as the colour for the hero pieces. ( check Kiko Kostadinov)
And last but not least.... THE CROPPED TOPS or as we all know ’crop tops’. Yes, crop tops were ‘a thing’ for SS19 presentations and it looks like it will be a strong trends on menswear collections next year. From John Lawrence to Astrid Andersen, the crop top trend has made its strongest entry ever for SS19 ( well, at least for the last 15 years)
