With the rainy weather letting up, the talk in London has been focused squarely on menswear. London kickstarts the menswear calendar with a biannual showcase of British brands and businesses embedded in a cultural programme. London Collections: Men, running 6-8th January 2014, emphasizes both the creative and commercial importance of Britain’s brands and emerging talent as well as the rich cultural landscape that contributes to the inspiration and success of this sector. All events on the schedule are designed to showcase the breadth of British fashion talent, from the world’s most innovative emerging talents to global menswear brands and Savile Row tailors.
Dylan Jones, Editor of GQ and Chair of the Menswear Committee stated the inaugural men’s week was far more successful than anticipated. “We have been overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm for the project from designers, retailers, buyers and the press,” he said. “LC: M has already contributed to the changing perception of menswear in this country, and our plans for the next week in January, and beyond, will hopefully build on this.”
