Agi & Sam catwalk show report A/W 2015 for LCMLondon Collections Men AW15
We questioned during the opening moments of the show, that we might have accidentally bowled into Toys “R” Us. Prepubescent boys entered the catwalk brandishing faces clad with Lego; it took some time to notice what else they were wearing. Block colours and a plastic quality, the relevance of the Lego became patently obvious.
A brand that doesn’t take themselves too seriously is a pleasure to watch. Last year’s A/W collection had a monochrome base, using repetitive patterns and layering to create textural looks. This year we were offered jigsaw blocks of colour and a paint splattered style – the line is fun and creative.
Outfits were assembled with dark polo neck tops, acting as a blank canvas to place the elaborate outerwear. The line itself took an oversized theme, creating impressive silhouettes, sleekly outlining the models. Floral panelled baggy pants were worn together with dress-length knitwear, regenerating the layering style seen in previous years.
The second half of the collection adopted for a somewhat “unfinished” style. Indistinguishable between an unpinned coat and an off-the-shoulder-shirt, it was difficult to understand what the model was actually wearing. Nonetheless, the garment complimented the clarity of the simple statement polo neck.
