On the eve of the highly-hyped London Collections: MEN première, Planet Notion comes baring one promise, that is; to bring you chic to the next lev coverage that is both exclusive and entertaining, in equal measures. The next three days are dedicated to one thing – celebrating and commending all that goes unnoticed for four of the five days of its sister – LFW. Our fair city’s menswear talents will finally get the recognition they deserve with not a stiletto in sight (actually, probably unlikely). We have the BFC and The Hospital Club to thank for the pleasure.
LCM marks milestone in menswear history and we know you want a piece so we have spared you the stress of ticket requests, endless queues on twelve hour, heeled-feet and unhealthy litres of Vitamin Water. Eyes peeled for stunning photography, insider interviews and token fashion boi (and girl) tweets. We’re anticipating a megachic menswear weekender.
To settle all hash tag confusion (LCM vs. londoncollections etc.), we will be tweeting all the goss as it happens from @NotionMagazine with #PNLCM as our custom made hash tag.
