The menswear installations showcased a wealth of up-and-coming British menswear talent in one of the best venues conceivable – the somewhat eerie vaults of Somerset House. Highlights included getting up close and personal with the Christopher Shannon x Eastpak collab. as well as the quilted nappa leather laptop covers from H by Harris.
What followed was of course London menswear at its zenith – the MAN show, which incorporated the anatomy-centric, glitz-grotesque work of Katie Eary, the white accented-by-blue, breezy sportswear from Christopher Shannon as well as the billowing black-on-black of JW Anderson‘s inspired pieces and yet another exquisite offering from Topman Design.

Having paced past a v. fetching Peaches Geldof and Jethro Cave, I defected for a quick caffeine fix. The evening saw BStore and Tim Soar show to an audience significantly larger than any other that had been haunting Somerset House during the day. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it to the A Child of the Jago since the venue wasn’t in the immediate area and photo coverage courtesy of the BFC has me regretting not dashing off when the Wintle show concluded. Alas.
