London Mens Collections 2015

Wait 6 months then we might be ready for you…

Right now and over the weekend the London Mens Collections are taking place (search for #LCM on Instagram and Twitter) or the main resource London Collections.

Are you confused over the seasons?

Right now they are showing Autumn Winter 2015 when we consumers are waiting for Spring Summer to hit the shelves. The Runway shows are for the Buyers of your favourite Boutiques and Stores, they’re not really meant for you and I – at least not until brands and designers saw the shows as a brilliant marketing exercise.

For example last year you may have seen the mens Alexander McQueen Spring Summer 2015 show:

If you click on the images it will take you to the McQueen website – often in couture what you see walking down the Runway doesn’t make it to the shop-floor, either because your store didn’t order it, or the production orders were so low it didn’t make it into production at all.

Right now Burberry just wrapped their Menswear Prorsum Autumn Winter 2015 show – Amazing. Christopher Bailey hits the mark again.

As someone that was part of the Burberry team I can tell you it’s very rare for everything not to be made – at least this collection is worth waiting six months for!
