Why do you attend LFWM?

There’s continuously a strong mix of new and emerging talent at LFWM, with platforms such as NewGen and Fashion East nurturing future success – and Craig Green is one of the standout designers that is proof of this. He’s progressively created a masculine uniform that’s hugely appealing, with his cagoule like jackets knotted so intricately together with the quilted tiled carpets, being a true highlight look for me.

Outside the shows, street style is still so prevalent here at LFWM and as London is such a diverse city, it attracts heavy sports and streetwear influence on all the street style stars. It’s extremely fun to observe and provides a great deal of style inspiration for the younger contemporary customer.

What did you think of today at LFWM?

Despite the miserable weather there was a large turnout for today’s shows and everyone was in high spirits. Today’s schedule was less sporadic so eased matters and presented a mix of established brands like Oliver Spencer and YMC, alongside new talents.

What stood out today?

I started the day at Lou Dalton’s presentation; the space was amazing with a fantastic view of the city. The knitwear was crafted in rich camel hues, lovely burnt oranges mixed with navy and blue tones over relaxed fit trousers.

Matthew Miller’s show expressed a masculine, political point of view as always, and was juxtaposed with beautiful floral scarves draped over boucle bombers and tough nylon outerwear with grosgrain details.

The highlight for me was Oliver Spencer; every season delivering a memorable show. Today was filled with lovely olive green tones mixed with tartan, burnt orange - which seems to be a running trend across the shows - and pastel pinks. The burnt orange velvet bomber alongside the geometric stripe knits and shearling details stood out for me. I’m looking forward to buying this autumn 17 collection in the showroom.
