Since 2012, London Collections Men has been the first men's fashion week of the calendar year, kicking off later menswear events that continue in Florence, Milan, Paris and New York. This year's edition featured a total of 170 exhibitors, a new high, even as the novelty of London Collections Men has begun to wear off four years in. There was a mixture of emerging designers and established brands, and if you weren't able to keep up with the best stuff from both groups, don't fret -- we've rounded up six of the designers worthy of your attention.
For Fall/Winter 2016, Barbour blended heritage looks with slimmed down contemporary silhouettes. Layering was a dominant theme, featuring the brand's iconic outerwear along with woollen knits, tees and sweatshirts.
For the debut of his Fall/Winter 2016 collection at London Collections Men, Christopher Shannon did away with the runway and opted for a presentation format. Ironically, the London-based designer unveiled energetic, casual looks built for movement.
British designer Christopher Raeburn cited Mongolia as inspiration for his Fall/Winter 2016 collection, and an urban explorer aesthetic was supported by loose fitting knits and cardigans. Cutting through the cozy fabrics were military-inspired bomber and field jackets.
Tonal color palettes and military influences were the order of the day at the Maharishi Fall/Winter 2016 presentation. Camouflage and Eastern iconography added an exotic touch to the rugged fabrics on display.
