LFW: Mr Start – Show Report

Not content with being the foremost fashion destination in East London, the Start boutique has branched out into own line of menswear. Under the design direction of Philip Start, this capsule collection of suits was modern without being modish, the cuts sharp and narrow without skinniness. It was perfectly engineered to appeal to those more mature creative types who populate the Shoreditch triangle these days, the type who would be loath to profess an interest in fashion, yet shop at APC, adore Comme and are interested in style and design and want everyone to know it. A double breasted jacket was left unbuttoned for slouchy cool, while white collarless shirts lent a laidback, slightly sixties accent. Fabrics were ideal for summer: cotton and linen mixes while colours – charcoal, dove grey, icy blue – were soft and muted. A subtle collection for understated tastemakers.
