The fashion world is used to working seasons ahead of real time. The Spring Summer collections are shown in Autumn, the Autumn Winter in Spring. Some of our Australian based labels even name the same collections separately for their Northern and Southern hemisphere buyers, to fit the respective season. So to summarise: we're all already fashionably late.
But before the furore of fashion weeks across the globe come the Menswear Collections, creating a significant noise all of their own.
In an ode to London Collections: Men taking over our home capital this weekend, here's our current Menswear selects to see you through Summer and beyond. And just to mix things up (and not to leave out the ladies), we thought we'd add in another favourite way to style a guy's garms: on a girl.
