Get the latest on London Fashion Week Men's AW17 from the capital. This year has already been one of change.

London Fashion Week Men's AW17

This year has seen a great deal of upheaval during the London Fashion Week Men's AW17. There has been the political shadow of Brexit which has made the commercial future unsure.

Moreover, Burberry, Alexander McQueen and Coach have moved on. The absence of these three big brands left a significant gap as the four-day event began.

London Collections: Men is known for the breadth, heritage and creativity. Though autumn/winter 2017 also saw tailoring brands skip the fashion week.

Fortunately, the result was an atmosphere of banding together, inclusiveness and political commentary. Here's our London Fashion Week Men's AW17 highlights.

Sports-Casual Success

Sportswear and leisurewear have long been staples of men's fashion. These runway shows proved their success is unlikely to slow down.

Sportswear became a sumptuous, vibrant addition from Sibling and their use of silk. Likewise, leather and shearling continued to be the ideal complimenting layers.

Tied-up in Knitwear

J. W. Anderson brightened the week with knitwear and crochet. They continued to push boundaries and question masculinity.

Their typically elongated silhouettes layered tailoring and textures. A laid-back look for the coming season.

Whilst, the return of Vivienne Westwood celebrated green energy. The rapturous reaction created hope for the future.

Military Musings

Belstaff and Craig Green made strides with military jackets, waterproofs and bombers. Expected draw-strings and some unexpected colours (Craig Green) made these a must.

Whereas, KTZ went viral with their added emblems and corsetry. Certainly the way to make a statement in coming months.
