#LCM AW14: Backstage at MAN

Here at Notion we strive to bring you #thetruth, and we believe that a healthy dose of transparency will do just that. What could be better than an invitation to dissect a fashion show? Our photgraphers pinned the LC:M shows to the table so that we could all better understand …



#LCM AW14 – Day One Show Report

Rain… It came by the bucketful on Monday, ushering in the latest London Collections: Men. Whilst the fashion-set shook off their brollies, the opening breakfast commenced with an introduction to the week by GQ’s editor-in-chief, Dylan Jones. With barely a moment to dry off, it was straight to the



#LCM SS14 Backstage: Astrid Andersen

Fit. That was the over-riding sense that the spectators were left with after Astrid Andersen’s first catwalk show outside of MAN. To be fair, Andersen is known for her street-cast gang of hardened models, and this season didn’t disappoint. Neither did the collection; after a slightly underwhelming AW13 showing …



#LCM SS14 Backstage: Agi & Sam

There’s something supremely endearing about Agi & Sam. The two designers have steadily built up a really strong reputation on the back of brilliantly-cut design and playful prints that have become their signature aesthetic, most recently picked up for an establishment-cementing Topman collab.

Joe Brummell #57 – Off the Wahl!

To be hirsute is both a curse and a blessing. Some people hate beards and moustaches, some people love them. Plenty of men have made a career out of them. But body hair is a different and much more divisive issue – hairy chests are like marmite. On the other …



Interview: James Long

We’ll just go ahead and admit it: James Long is one of our biggest fashion designer crushes of the moment. When we interviewed him, we were blown away by his knowledge and dedication to British fashion design. Check out this interview, in which the man himself talks to Notion about



LCM: Astrid Andersen

With a soundtrack so thumping it shook paint off of the ceiling, the industrial setting of London’s Old Sorting Office was the perfect backdrop for Astrid Anderson’s heavily sports and boxing influenced SS13 collection.

With ripped muscles and slick hair, models stormed the runway in ‘Astrid Anderson’ emblazoned mesh vests …



LCM: MAN – Shaun Samson

One third of this year’s MAN, Shaun Samson brings an eclectic and fun collection to the runway. Samson confesses his research to be in the realms of car and body modification, an aspect certainly visible in the metallic flashes that exude from not only his t-shirts but also his models
