    11 days ago - By WWD

    Alex Mullins served up nine three-look groupings in a bid to explore a variety of visual stories. “To create something because I think it's really nice is a good enough reason for me now,” said the designer, adding that he also wants to try new combinations that interest him.
    An assured confidence came through in pleasantly unexpected fabrics and details.
    There was suiting made from waterproof swimming trunk fabric, with tight neon layers of spandex, and other ensembles that challenged concepts of traditional tailoring. A group of boxy, double-breasted two-tone jackets were made with...

    Tinie Tempah celebrated the first anniversary of his label with a collection that highlighted what he's been trying to do by launching What We Wear: offer simple, functional sportswear for the “modern-day British man.”
    The inspiration was equally straightforward: a celebration of football and the way it unites its fans, just in time for the inauguration of the World Cup 2018.
    Tracksuits came printed and were layered over loose shell T-shirts, while short and shirt combinations featured striped patterns to resemble football players' uniforms. It was a fun collection filled with easy...

    Paria Farzaneh continued to incorporate elements from her Iranian heritage and this season she focused on celebrating Iranian New Years and the traditional custom Haft-sin. “The custom Haft-sin actually means the seven S's. Each ‘S' represents an important meaning in Iranian culture and this is also how I wanted to build the presentation,” Farzaneh said.
    Models lounged inside an open truck that was split into seven different sets and sections. The truck was parked on a grassy field next to The Green Restaurant in Waterloo.

  • Charles Jeffrey Loverboy Men's Spring 2019

    11 days ago - By WWD

    Young, wild and free.
    Charles Jeffrey has taken up running and it's helped him rediscover a more youthful, carefree side to himself and create an upbeat collection that burst with color, pattern and texture.
    “I'm in a very good headspace at the moment, looking after myself properly. It's the most I have ever looked after myself and it put me in the kind of headspace that's aligned with a younger self and a time when I felt a lot more free,” Jeffrey said backstage, explaining his first venture into ath-leisure. “There is a kind of puritanical meeting the grotesque, the puritanical coming...

  • Blindness Men's Spring 2019

    11 days ago - By WWD

    In a number of ways, the story told in Blindness' spring collection was of the age-old girl-meets-boy variety.
    Exploring the theme of first love, designers Kyu Shin and Ji Park siphoned the maelstrom of emotions triggered by falling in love for the first time into a romantic collection that cleverly riffed on its theme and took the nonbinary trend to new levels of sophistication and drama.
    They gracefully intermingled masculine and feminine codes, borrowing details from ultra-manly military dress and elevating them with archly feminine touches. Army great coats were reincarnated in...

  • Berthold Men's Spring 2019

    11 days ago - By WWD

    The serene image of a desert at dusk and the impenetrable black of night were the starting point for Raimund Berthold's spring collection, a slick lineup of urban uniforms that offered up lots of great outerwear options and interesting experiments in layering.
    Beginning with a series of all-black looks, the minimal palette swerved suddenly into candy pink - inspired by neon artworks - then into clean taupe. Just three colors, but it was far from dull, with Berthold using it as an opportunity to play with texture and proportion.
    Coats were the big story here. Several had open front panels...
