Alex Mullins SS19 at London Fashion Week Mens

For SS19, Alex Mullins collection was an eclectic mix of nine different styles showcased in groups of three looks.

First style featured stretchy cutout vests in bright neon colours over suits giving a sporty element to the sartorial look.

2nd style barcode pattern top worn with long shorts or trousers that flared out at the bottom - almost a Star Trek style.

3rd style boxy double breasted suits with meandering panels of contrasting colours.

4th style checkered pants with leather apron style tops - I can't help thinking of a chef's outfit.

5th Style - dove print short sleeve shirts. The dove is shown either hiding behind the background print or above it. Ready for that tropical holiday.

6th style - double breasted suits with splattered paint design. Do we think a dapper decorator or a sartorial artist? Worn with oversized circular belt bags.

7th style - shirts with open slits and embroidered floral designs. Great for keeping your cool.

8th style - shiny raw silk fabric in trench coat styles

Style 9 influenced by the Far East with prints of the Koi carp and Japanes irezumi
