LFWM AW18 - WHAT I WORE


It's that time of year again where some of the most stylish gent's in London, come together to watch their favourite designers and brands showcasing their upcoming collections. With fashion week being mainly aimed at buyers, media and stylists, I always feel honoured to be invited with the chance to get involved with what's going on. I wanted to share a few of my looks with you from the few days, so that you could see what I decided to wear and could have a go yourself.


DAY 1
The official start of LFWM fell on the Saturday this year, with the ASOS presentation and launch party the night before, so I wasn't looking or feeling that fresh after a long week and an even longer night of partying. My first show of the season was Tini Tempah's 'What We Wear', which ended up being one of my favourites from the few days. I didn't want to wear anything too out there or formal, so decided to mix up classic tailoring with a casual sweat top for a more relaxed look.




You guys seemed to love this look when I uploaded it to instagram. It's a mix of pieces I already owned and a few new bits I picked up. As much as you guys the River Island trousers, they recently sold out so unfortunately, I've had to offer you guys a similar dupe, although any checked trouser would offer the same look. The mix of a relaxed sweatshirt and fitted overcoat also plays homage to the sports-luxe trends we've seen this year and meant that I was comfy after a busy night.


DAY 2
The second day saw one of my classic looks, with my favourite checked overcoat. I've never been one of those people that has to wear something new for an event so wanted to use one of this seasons must have items in another classic trend inspired outfit. This look was aimed at putting a modern spin on the classic gent, with a layered denim jacket and cropped trouser, accessorised with tan leather pieces.




Of course I couldn't go without my go-to Aspinal of London bag. It was the perfect carry around piece to keep everything I needed with me, including my camera, bottle of water, event invites and power-pack (something everyone needs for when they need those last minute instagram uploads). This looks was my favourite over  the few days and was the one people wanted 'street style' shots of the most.


DAY 3
The third and final full day of events was a little more chilled, and one that saw a number of urban and casual wear brands showcase. I didn't want to be too dressed up and wanted to wear something a little different to my usual overcoats and roll necks. I've had this bomber jacket stashed away for some time now and thought it was about time it made another appearance. I bought this from Topman a few years back so it isn't available to shop still, but I've found a similar one below that would give the same look.






I wanted to mix these tailored trousers and cashmere sweater with a clean white trainer for that mixed up sports look, using higher quality smart-wear and contrasting it with casual pieces. The clean white sneaker is definitely here to stay when it comes to menswear and has managed to make its self more acceptable as an alternative formal shoe option. Again, I used one of my favourite Aspinal of London pieces to keep everything together.

Let me know what you think of my looks, and tag me if you decide to try any of them out for yourselves!
