Songzio SS18 Menswear at London Fashion Week: Mens

South Korean designer, SONGZIO presented his SS18 collection entitled “Crossing Veils” at London Fashion Week Men’s. This season marks the brand’s third UK showcase outside of the Paris and Seoul fashion weeks.

 “Crossing Veils” was inspired by the phrase: ‘Man, in his night, searches for his own light’- man’s emotional journey from a boy’s curiosity in all things, a young man’s ambitions to a lover’s yearning -  always searching for a way to express and show his feelings in a rigid society.

It’s stripes, stripes and more stripes – ranging from jaunty wide awning stripes teamed with candy striped shirts, chic clean calk stripes teamed with shadow striped shirts,

to the more sombre classic pinstripe and tonal stripes

Look closely and you’ll find a print inside the awning and candy stripes. This print took inspiration from two portrait paintings by Velasquez depicting the Infanta Margarita Teresa in both a pink and a blue dress, Songzio has painstakingly translated Velasquez’s loose brushstrokes on to printed textiles inside his vertical awning stripes.

Colour palette juxtaposes the brand’s classic black and white with the more whimsical  royal blue, yellow and an orange shade very close to the pink shade used by Velasquez.

Sharply tailored fit jackets with shawl collars contrast against the loose and playful silhouettes of shirts.

Trousers range from billowing to slim 

with side fringing,

 jodpurs and buckles holding slit openings together

 T-shirts sport watercolour painting prints. 

The result is a collection, that is dramatic and bold with delicate artworks

For this season SONGZIO has designed two pieces of footwear including derby’s embellished with metal studs and sandals.

Ben Sherman SS18 menswear at London Fashion Week:Men

The SS18 collection takes inspiration from the 1960s Peacock Revolution when young men challenged the staid restrictions of the ‘normal’ masculine dress sense and embraced the Bohemian and psychedelic flamboyancy in patterns and colours.

Revisiting Ben Sherman’s heritage and love of music, the collection gives a nostalgic nod to the music and iconic festival posters of the 60s.

Tailoring is soft and relaxed creating a contemporary silhouette that is still reflective of the season’s psychedelic inspiration.

Vintage, British and spring floral art patterns are used throughout the collection

Plus a psychedelic peacock print.

Shorts are worn with summer jackets.

Colour palette is indigo and denim shades for outerwear alongside bolder hues of brick, tan, and claret with soft pinks.

Belstaff SS18 Menswear at London Fashion Week:Men

Inspired by the riders of the Paris to Dakar rally.

Travelling through extreme conditions it was in these unchartered territories that riders encountered many different cultures, climates and terrains which translates in to the collection, mixing modern performance fabrics with retro sports graphics and prints.

A Prince of Wales check coat is rendered in technical nylon rather than the traditional wool for a modern and multi seasonal take on a classic pattern

The collection also captures the romance of the North African landscape through a colour palette ranging from soft sun bleached hues of sand and tundra, scorched earth colours of brown, vibrant  copper and saffron to the stronger tones of the African sunset such as burnt orange and red.

All complemented with soft sage green, ash rose and blue chambray pastels.

Sportswear takes its cue from the early 80s with solid blues, reds and yellows.

Denim - this season sees the introduction of stressing, patchwork and eyelet elements.
