By Jo Phillips

Sankuanz’s bold collection was a joy to see and filled with colourful interpretations of classic styles. From the quintessential military coat,oversized  jumpers labelled with slogans, and coats bursting with multicoloured prints, Sankuanz presented a collection which brought a flair of Asian influences seen on the streets of Tokyo to Victora House.

Craig Green:

Craig Green’s minimalist collection was definitely one to watch this AM. Filled with crisp white shirts, military knits with peekaboo holes, muddy green parkas, and the excursion of ultra layered looks in red which lit up the catwalk. With elements of utilitarianism and uniform, Green presented a sleek, consistent collection, woven into soft wool, billowing silk and neoprene.

Katie Eary

Colour was the name of the game for Katie Eary this season, with splashes of fuchsia and tangerine commanding attention throughout the collection. While designers often lead towards muted colours for autumn/winter, Eary does the opposite, presenting teal coats with fur trims, quilted jackets, prints of brains placed across jumpers, as well as trainers and rather bold make up. Loud, proud and extremely daring, Eary closed the last day of LCM with a bang.

Burberry Prorsum

Christopher Bailey presented Burberry Prorsum’s latest AW15 menswear collection, and has once again produced a collection with Bailey flare all over it. From the expressive prints, manipulated across raincoats, and slim tailored silhouettes with cosy ponchos, there was a graphic feel and relaxed comfort about the entire collection. Highlights included shaved furs mixed with luxurious fabrics, and the structured leathers of shearling, and his arts and crafts inspired prints.

Tiger of Sweden

Tiger of Sweden incorpartated post punk influences and classic tailoring into their autumn/winter 2015 collection, leading an army of looks featuring quilted bombers in checks and leather, narrow suits, and tapered high waisted trousers. The colour palette ranged from navy, bottle green and camel, and presented an array of monochrome suits, knits, and classic outwear. Although subtle, the contrast was unique.
