The second edition of the London Collections: Men – the British men’s fashion week – will take place from the 7th until the 9th of January. The choice of date is a statement. An attack showing no fear.
That’s because almost at the same time the Pitti Uomo is taking place (8th – 11th of January) in Florence. Apparently there has already been a public complaint. The schedule clash will not allow attending both shows so there is no choice but to pick one of them.
London Collections: Men – Pitti Uomo?
The Fashion Telegraph lists in the article It’s raining menswear – London Collections: Men Autumn/Winter 2013 line-up announced a few logical reasons why one should opt for the second edition of London’s men’s fashion week.
The Prince of Wales hosted the opening party, the weather was glorious – and the shows were rather good too. Yes, the very first London Collections: Men fashion weeklet for chaps proved a rip-roaring success when it launched back in June… You can read the entire article in the Fashion Telegraph.
The good thing about the current fall/winter-weather is, that one is finally allowed to wear clothes from the current fall/winter-collections. For example this really beautiful, and surely also really warm jumper by the Danish designer HENRIK VIBSKOV.
Not so good about the current autumn/winter-weather is by the way: everything else.
Well, we do not want to complain. As long as we are wearing that jumper.
You can order the sweater for an absolutely okay price of 250,- Euro, for example here.
