London Collections: Men - Day 2

Just like day one, day two of London Collections: Men featured a mountain of designers and brands that were eager to show off what they think men should be wearing this coming year. A staggering 19 shows in total were held yesterday, all of which had their own unique take on mens fashion for autumn/winter 2016. However, its seems that it was the following three that really stole the show. 

What seemed like playing it safe was actually the opposite for Hardy Amies this season. With a small shift in aesthetic, the new head of design showcased the versatility of the brand. Dressing the finely tailored suits down with turtlenecks and crewnecks suggested a greater casualness. While there was nothing casual about Sibling's display. Taking complete inspiration from boxers, this line was full of headgear, punching bags and oversized boxing gloves. Of course. The robes in colour blocked geometric, striped and cartoon prints were so impressive. Moving on to a classic look with a bit of an edge, Oliver Spencer came at us with yet another strong collection. This fresh and current collection was combined with amazing colours like deep bronze, royal blue and burgundy. This was a collection full of incredible patterns. There was even a batik-like print. Yes. However, as amazing as these there were, it was Mackintosh that really stole the show for me. I loved everything about that collection. Quite the day, eh? Of course it didn't stop there. Take a look at some of my favourite pieces from day two below. 

What a day. From oversized boxing gloves to outfits that would definitely give Kim Kardashian a run for her money, day two did not disappoint. It is always so nice to see fashion not been taken so seriously.
