UNCOMMON THREADS: Rising design stars energize London Fashion Week

Bold colors, oversize proportions, pumped-up pattern play, high-tech textiles and literal “deep pockets” ruled the runway at the London Fashion Week Men’s collections in June.

Charles Jeffrey Loverboy showcased whimsical patchwork plaid suits, ‘90s-inspired sportswear and fanciful print-laden shirts and shorts. Christopher Raeburn repurposed Timberland finds from street markets in geometric shapes on hooded jackets imprinted with satellite pictures of the environment and words literally reflecting the brand ethos (reduced, recycled, remade) in capital letters.

Iceberg, the label spearheaded by creative director James Long incorporated pop culture and art references into its collection of stadium jackets, track pants and other streetwear for the brand.

Khalid Al Qasimi’s namesake line concentrated on comfort, with wide-leg pants, sweaters, and jackets in hues of tobacco and burnt orange. Kiko Kostadinov’s take on corporate suiting gives it a distinctively slouchy twist — bringing a whole new meaning to “working it.”
