The heat was on at the London Collections: Men for spring/summer 2015. With tropical inspiration, catchy beats and cool clothes, the mood was laid back and playful.
There was plenty of pink, as shown at Burberry and Paul Smith, as well as lots of silver at Jonathan Saunders and Richard Nicoll. Stylewise, the nineties and the preppy boys ruled.
THE GROOMING TRENDS:
1 IT’S ALL ABOUT THE HAIR
Move over, man bun. Hair knots in Gwen Stefani fashion were on display at Christopher Shannon, Britpop hair was big at Topman Design and Agi & Sam copied Javier Bardem’s infamous ‘do from No Country for Old Men. A good wax or gel is a must have for any of the above.
2 FRESH FACED
Both John Smedley and Lou Dalton’s models were fresh faced and flawless. For a face with just the right amount of sheer coverage as well as a little shine – mix moisturizer with a few drops of foundation.
3 BROWS, BROWS, BROWS
The preppy look, as shown at Dunhill, is all about sharp tailoring and perfect brows. A top notch tweezer and an eyebrow kit is all you need for defined and eye opening look.
4 FOCUS ON THE LIPS
The eyes were obscured, either by sunglasses, like Katie Eary’s mirrored ones or hair, such as Alexander McQueen’s full face bangs. That put focus on the lips. Make sure yours are soft and smooth with a lip balm.
5 PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD
Jonathan Saunders’ lace-up flipflops and Craig Green’s barefoot boys put feet on display.
Make sure yours are presentable if showing them in public. Regular use of a foot cream and pumice goes a long way.
