Despite all the hype and thrill of the Collections it can take it’s toll. …

Trending: If I Were a Boy

Lorna’s back for round two of ‘Trending’ – this time it’s all about playing with mannish tailoring…

I’m a die-hard girly girl. I wear floral print dresses, I like butterflies, I put ribbons in my hair and I cry a lot. But lately, there has been an unexpected deviation from …

LCM: A Child of The Jago

Truth be told, I still don’t know quite what to make of the eccentric, East London-based duo’s schedule appearance. It was half-way between a static presentation and all out catwalk show: the evidently intoxicated models lolled around like lost sheep on the runway space, cackling as they posed for the

Truth be told I …

LCM: Christopher Shannon

At last, the one we’ve been waiting for. With his SS13 collection Christopher Shannon, mainstay of the London menswear scene, has grown up. The last few collections have been up and down in terms of detail and finish (although always massively strong on ideas and creative) and occasional lapses in

LCM: Jonathan Saunders

Mr Saunders’ men’s collections takes appropriately and perfectly from his blockbuster women’s looks; utilising similar materials and colour palettes, the latest darling of London’s menswear scene showed garments that justify his position as one of the must-see shows of Saturday.

The venue was packed out, but the wait was ostensibly …

LCM: Spencer Hart

Housed within the Old Selfridges Hotel, tucked in amongst the hustle and bustle of the store itself, we were invited to witness Nick Hart’s homage to London.

The venue itself seemed to foreshadow a sense of classic elegance with a gritty edge; we were presented with a whole new definition …

LCM: Baartmans & Siegel

Kicking off the final day of LCM was one of our most-anticipated shows of the whole weekend. London’s Wouter Baartmans and Amber Siegel are the most lovely design duo we’ve met, and each season, their collections grow in scope and ambition.

This time around, inspired by Cuban crab invasions (much …
