The first day of the mens shows at LCM suggested a handful of trends to watch as the autumn 14 season gets underway.
Oversize: outerwear gets supersized, with floor-skimming, wide and boxy cuts bringing heavy and exaggerated proportions to chunky coats. While the coats to the floor might not have a wide appeal, look for a slightly oversized update to classic styles.
Furry finish – whether real or faux, there has been a number of designers introducing fur to their collections. Most often trimming or lining hoods, others such as Astrid Andersen and Xander Zhou use fluffy fur to create decoration across garmets.
Cords: while the battle has recently been between denim or chino, designers on day one push the return of the cord. Chunky wide cordory ran down trousers, but also appeared on matching jackets and even shirts. While the double, or triple cord look might not be popular, look out for touches of it on garments.
Graphic knit: clashing colour and mixed and matched patterns created some bold knits for autumn, with everyone of Jonathan Saunders to John Smedley banking of bold, graphic designs.
