London Collections: Men - Best of the rest

In this damp English summer, it was perhaps ironic that Nicole Farhi’s collection celebrated summer by the sea. Inspired by Brighton’s promenade, it was modern and contemporary with smart tailored shorts, knitted T-shirts and boxy lightweight jackets.

Over at Hackett it was about the traditional three-piece suit in cream and pastels, in addition to paisley-print silk trousers that mirrored the traditional cravat. Moving away from tailoring, sportswear reigned supreme at up-and-coming Astrid Andersen, with printed lace worked into loose-fit T-shirts. Shaun Samson also rolled with the US West Coast aesthetic with skater shorts and check shirts. Meanwhile, Meadham Kirchhoff’s unusual presentation unearthed some highlights including a reworked camouflage quilted jacket and embellishment and studding on fine-gauge knits and silks. Embellishment was a staple at James Long, who teamed studded crisp white shirts with wide-leg culotte-style shorts, while British stalwart Margaret Howell delivered a clean collection with great separates and an easily workable palette of putty, slub green and navy.
