With Men’s Fall/Winter fashion week presentations ending last week, the Stylesight denim team round up the best denim looks to emerge from the London shows. Denim was strong this season so we will be writing two round-ups, so stay tuned for part 2!
Sibling brought a collection that saluted miners, engineers, steelworkers and all other grafting, working class men who work hard to provide for their families. The presentation was in a way a love letter to all hard working dads. Presented was a selection of hand darned denim pants and outwear that possessed a definite workwear character. Soft and slouchy silhouettes in mid cast indigos brought a sportswear element to the collection. Shadow knee patches reinforced the workwear attitude. Denim items were accompanied by handcrafted knitted scarves in autumnal berry tones.
A bright and youthful, denim-heavy collection was presented by Lou Dalton. Farm life inspired fabrics and styling were evident. Pink tie-dye, denim on denim looks along with faded washes saw an urban injection. Rolled up, straight leg jeans worn with crew neck sweaters and matching denim truckers added an `80s influence. This youth driven collection has a fresh and fashion-forward perspective.
YMC is known for incorporating their iconic functional and utilitarian detailing into everyday wear. For F/W 14 they did not disappoint. Color blocking was key. Solid color, denim on denim looks jumped out as the stand out pieces of the presentation. The classic denim-centric trucker was experimented with in different fabric textures, colors and worn as a layering piece as opposed to an outerwear item. Classic utilitarian detailing was seen throughout with the bright, saturated colors injecting a fresh, wintry appeal.
