Front Row Efani’s birdseye view.
London Men’s Fashion Week 2016 was a hodgepodge of long hair, precisely constructed boxy tailoring, military themed wear and streetwear inspired runway pieces with advanced textures. Hard to impress fashion scrutinizers such as Asap Rocky, Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas and Kid Cudi all filed into seating surrounded by members of the style elite. Artists and attendee alike watched as a host of designers invited crowds to peeks of their creatively charged design visions. Labels such as Jeremy Scott’s Moschino and KTZ offered thoroughly luxurious fun with complete Instagram complementation, while fashion entities like Coach, Katie Eary and Burberry pulled from style rich periods of the past in which Instagram at fashion week was simply unfathomable.
While some designers are more steeped in offering subtle stylings, there was a handful of brands that chose to indulge in presentations of jubilance and fun. Master of utterly entertaining fashion, Jeremy Scott let loose a Moschino collection that visually enthralled viewers with all the options of the color wheel. Inspired by contemporary art innovators Gilbert & George, Scott designed a Fall/Winter collection ripe with his signature pop culture appeal in conjunction with the pair. The celebrity did so from a decidedly thorough and imaginative perspective, with pieces such as a blue knit cardigan with MA-1 sleeves proving to be a potent amalgamation.
