Over the weekend, from January 5-7, fashion show season kicked off in London for Fall 2019 menswear collections. While more than a handful of designers showed their latest works off, seven in particular caught our attention: A-COLD-WALL*, C2H4, Chalayan, Cottweiler, Iceberg, Feng Chen Wang and Raeburn. Take a look at each brand's runway presentation below.
Samuel Ross has quickly built a cult following with his brand A-COLD-WALL*. For Fall 2019, the British designer continues to push boundaries with cut-outs in his pieces, zippers, an abundance of pockets, compasses in select pieces and oversized fits. He told Vogue that, "Freedom of movement, nationalistic fears; these are nuances I'm touching on in this show." Photos: Filippo Fior/gorunway.com
Yixi Chen's brand C2H4 continued to push the envelop for futuristic sci-fi attire in London. Sporting multitudes of fasteners, zippers, buckles and buttons, the detailing of the collection is immaculate. Sharp piping and reflective materials further draws your attention into specific parts of certain pieces. Additionally, collaborations with both mastermind JAPAN and Nike were sported on the runaway.

Hussein Chalayan mixes athleisure and sexy together for his namesake line's Fall 2019 presentation. A blend of plaid, inverted v-necks, pants with material cut at the knees and sharp clean lines on billowing pieces makes this collection truly stand out. Photos: Filippo Fior/gorunway.com
Designers Ben Cottrell and Matthew Dainty showed off a collection "based on traditional British menswear looks, while challenging both expected dress codes and masculinity overall," Dainty explained to Vogue. The collection featured multiple track suit looks which have become the calling card of the brand as well as trousers with pockets in unexpected areas and lengthy coats.

Creative Director James Long's Iceberg collection for Fall 2019 is not for minimalists. Nearly every color and fabric imaginable is used to piece together large all-over logo tops and baggy pants. He even manages to incorporate Mickey Mouse into select pieces. If you are looking to relive the '80s and '90s, this collection is for you. Photos: Alessandro Lucioni/gorunway.com
Inspired by her mother and two siblings, Feng Chen Wang's namesake collection brings plenty of floral and spring colors to her Fall 2019 collection. Each piece has a nice ebb and flow to it, with the oversized tops sitting at just about a 45 degree angle on the shoulders. Head-to-toe accessories and sling bags were some standout pieces.

Christopher Raeburn celebrated his 10th anniversary in the industry with a continued focus on his militaristic aesthetic and sustainability. A plethora of straps, patchwork, zippers, polka dot patterns and scarves took center stage in the collection, which also featured collaborative pieces with Timberland, where Raeburn is Global Creative Director.
