LCM: SS15 Round-Up

19 June 2014

Sleep deprived, sore footed and in need of a large glass of wine - we survived London Collections: Men SS15! Hurray.

With left over chinese and pizza fueling us for three days, we have been all over the place catching up with models, tackling the backstage chaos and reporting on some pretty fine new collections. With shows and presentations to attend, from Christopher Shannon to Topman to Katie Eary, it was a week of late nights, runied shoes and social media. If there is anything we have learnt over the past few days it is that boys love pizza, 70s has officially making a come back (finally), graphic prints are a must and the British weather isn't all bad.

Saying farewell to another season, we have already began to reminisce about LCM; Anders in those cute Kit Neale Dunagrees, James Long making socks and sandals acceptable again, Matthew Miller's meaningful collection inspired by the aftermath of the Second World War and even meeting our future BBG private Chef Roze.

Flicking through images and reports isn’t quite enough to remember an event we thought, so with the help of Ieva Blazeviciute we have created a video summarising the London Collections. Featuring some of our favourite moments backstage with some of our favourite boys, we present to you our LCM SS15 Round-Up.
