22 ways to cop Brit style as seen at London Men's Fashion Week SS18
A dose of Brit wit
The streets are always a reflection of what goes on behind the red roped barriers at runway shows. Like Craig Green who explores the conceptual with no holds barred, Samuel Ross at A-Cold-Wall* with experimental shapes and material, and Martine Rose gives the tackiness of the '80s and '90s "dad-wear" the most sensitive treatment; London's brand of eclecticism has unquestionably spilled over onto its cobbled pavements.
Show attendees displayed an affinity towards ensembles that defy classical sartorial codes. Slick tailoring gives way to a preference towards floppy pants and roomy jackets ala E. Tautz — a heroic answer to summer dressing. Cinched waists appear to no longer be reserved for hourglassed vixens, as stylishly belted coats and bottoms mark a return of the statement girdle. And of course, streetwear-centric looks purposed from the latest technical fabrics and manufactured in unconventional proportions were spotted cooly rustling down every other street corner.
