Florescent lights fall over the industrial looking floor of the old sorting office as the low murmur of people die down and iPhones are raised towards the front of the crowd. Bassy music booms as the first boy to hit centre stage walks out sporting a buckled aviator style hat, which is nothing short of memorable, teamed with some classic silouhettes and YMC signature soft tailoring. What a way to start a show.

"SS16 has been very much about the art of creating coherence in a chaos of ideas" - Fraser Moss.

Oriental workwear, boiler suits and wide legged pants; this season both functional pieces and pieces to fall head over heels in love with. The palette ranges from rich indigos to subtle sage bringing you out of this modern building and into a mirage of harmonious calm. Experimental textures grasp your eyes as luxurious suede tailored bike suits and 1970s motorcross influenced jackets fall perfectly onto the silouhettes of brilliantly sculpted models; cutting cheekbones and immaculately primmed hair as they march silently down the runway.

The colour palette breaks into summery brush greens as we are introduced to more hats; this time different styles of woven bowler styles accompanied by some beautiful velcro punk sandals. YMC is not as much as a statement of some of the other shows of this season, but we are never failing to see beautifully executed and truly wearable clothing time and time again. Their motif of "Youth and Functionality" is shining through this season, and we really can't wait to get our hands on one of those hats.
