London Fashion Week Men’s concluded its 13th edition with a celebration of discovery and the creative diversity that has made London an international hub for menswear. Taking place bi-annually, LFWM showcases some of the most creative and innovative names in the fashion industry including brands like Xander Zhou and Chalayan. The shows also welcomed back designers like Craig Green, who returned to LFWM for the A/W 2019 collections after some time away in different cities and markets.

This year, it took place from Saturday, January 5th to Monday, January 7th, 2019, featuring over 40 designer businesses and their latest collections.

We’ve rounded up the eye-catching trends we spotted on the runways–from leisurewear to tech.

CASUAL SUITING

The tuxedo reinvented itself by way of unconventional fabrics. Think linens, tech-y polyester and padded cotton. Leisure was seen in the preference of T-shirts over button-downs and some designers like Per Gotesson switched out leather loafers for sneakers. Conference meetings are about to get cozy. And Chic.

LASER CUTS

T-shirts, pants and jackets were decorated with parts of peek-a-boo skin. Laser cutouts in pants allowed the knees to breathe as seen in Xander Zhou’s Fall collection; Tee’s were slashed asymmetrically at Per Gotesson and jackets were carefully carved in rectangular shapes on the A-Cold-Wall runway.

SPORT-TECH FABRICS

Streetwear was seen in every men’s collection–more specifically tech and performance fabrics. People on the move don’t have to compromise their look for utility; it’s a one package deal for Fall 2019.

THE MODERN TRACKSUIT

Leisure is having a moment. With the resurgence of the 90s fashion trends, we’ve seen sandal platforms, jelly accessories and blown-up furniture come back to life.  London Fashion Week men’s has added one more to their 90s-infatuation-list: tracksuits. In 2019, they come in neons, performance fabrics, and can be taken out from day to night.

(PATENT) LEATHER WEATHER

Patent leather and vinyl are not reserved for BDSM anymore–like Xander Zhou and Fashion East showed us this LFWM, it can be toned down with a basic pullover or elevated with two contrasting leather hues/textures.
