“I was looking at people who are so natural in their clothing, they think they are blending in, but they’re totally not,” James Long described the origins of his new SS16 collection debuted at LC:M.  Long looked to his own childhood in 90s Brighton along with the emerging rave scene with wearable looks that encompass denim, outwear and the designer’s signature textured knitwear.

LCM – E Tautz AW15– Backstage Exclusive

Tailoring label E Tautz presented its grey heavy AW15 collection during London Collections: Men.

Looks embraced voluminosity, oversized looks with wide-legged trousers, overcoats exaggerated wide lapels, double-breasted suits all in a palette of  greys, greens and blacks. While most tailoring brands concentrate on fit E Tautz has taken on board the trend for oversized, with more relaxed silhouettes and flowing draped fabric much like Acne Studio’s previous collections but in a more elegant and tailored form. Looks suited towards the more taller man, which those vertically challenged might find harder to pull off.

AW15’s real highlights are its outerwear looks, with beautiful and minimal overcoats and jackets, a grey pea coat being a particular stand out.

The brand partnered with grooming brand Braun for the show.

E. Tautz Creative Director, Patrick Grant, on the partnership…

‘The Tautz AW15 collection was inspired by ‘Terry Street’, a ground-breaking 1967 series of poems by Douglas Dunn. Terry Street in Hull in the 1960’s, studying as a mature student and working under Larkin and the collection chronicles the comings and goings of the ordinary people of this tough northern town. Braun’s heritage of design and functionality for the everyday man complement the ethos of this year’s collection so I am delighted that they are sponsoring my show again.’

Braun Creative Director, Fabio Vivan, adds…

‘Male grooming has developed into so much more than simply removing hair; it’s a means of expressing your overall style and identity. Braun’s grooming products are the perfect tools for every man to achieve their desired image.’

Hair for the show was created by TONI&GUY

LCM – Katie Eary AW15 – Backstage Exclusive

As ever Katie Eary offered attendees one of the most colourful shows during London Collections: Men, debuting her ”Areas of Flesh’ collection for AW15, inspired by the visuals of artists Jeff Koons and KAWS.

Looks were bold and vibrant, with pinks and oranges featuring heavily. The ”Areas of Flesh’ theme came into play with the human body used to adorn several pieces. Inner organs, including ribs, intestines and brains were created in Koons balloon aesthetic and decorated pieces including knitwear and T -shirts. Layered looks were worn on top of metallic turtlenecks for a cosmic effect.

Particular collection highlights are the pink knit jumper with a 3d effect brain detail in contrasting orange. Jeans featured lace-up crotch reminiscent of early Vivienne Westwood. While block colour parkas come in fun faux trims.

Eary fuses the grotesque aspects of organs but presents them in a rainbow palette, creating fun and bright looks for the season.

During the show Eary also gave a first look at her collaboration with lifestyle accessories label C6, with the two creating a limited edition  laptop case. The purple case has a screen printed pink brain (in keeping with her mainline collection) and will be available in July from c6life.com

Hair for the show was provided by Fudge Professional
