Topman LENS SS10: Season of the Best Yet.

February 20, 2010
Most have probably perused this collection already but since it’s millennia ahead of any work that’s been produced for LENS previously, I reckoned it was due another mention. This season’s designers include proponent of the storied and chicly-rugged gentleman, Carolyn Massey, Scandi-clean yet decidedly quirky Mjolk, the inspired, up-and-coming and Finnish Dusty, the 90s fashion hallmark-maker Dexter Wong and he of the dandy and minimalist/sleek juxtaposition, Kasper Harup-Hansen.

^ Kasper Harup-Hansen: From top – Lace bib front tee £30 (girls have reaped the benefits of this French-maid fabric for much too long, now it’s our turn), Grey jodhpur £50, Contrast bib cardigan (so often ‘contrast’ inevitably leads to too-graphic/geometrical designs that lean more towards the year 2679 rather than a sharp aesthetic, this slightly softer, more subtle approach is much better) £50.

Some of you may be remarking on the rather extensive lack of colour in this collection but these are just personal highlights, Mjolk and Dexter Wong do much more red, and Dusty are proffering a lemon pastel lightweight knit if you’re a brighter-shade-chaser.
