Over the past few weeks I’ve been invited to, and attended, several men’s fashion and style events around London. Unfortunately I’ve been unable to post about them as I’ve been busy writing up other blog ideas. However, I wanted to talk about some of the highlights from the events and show you the fantastic collections that were on show.
Small Luxury Hotels x Hackett
This was the definition of a luxury event, hosted in Hackett’s Flaghship Regent St store with collaborations from Small Luxury Hotels and grooming experts Murdock, it had every element of deluxe styling a gentleman could wish for. The entire top floor had been transformed into a showroom and cocktail bar with Beefeater’s 24 gin acting as the main ingredient.
Their new range is a combination of elegant fabrics, classic tailoring techniques and subtle contemporary nuances that give their clothing its unique character. Safe to say, I came away with a wishlist the size of my arm that would require a small mortgage to finance. Dare to dream…
Bailey Nelson x Pocket & Fold
I’ve been a fan of Bailey Nelson since last year when I got my hands on a pair of their fantastic sunglasses for my holiday to Madeira. So when I heard that they were working with Pocket & Fold, the genius idea of combining a pocket square and a cloth for cleaning your glasses, I knew I had to attend to see the result. It was a fantastic event that showed off the characteristic styles of both brands and played to the Spitalfields surroundings with innovative designs and eyewear experts on-hand to advise on styling.
London Collections Men – AW16
For the most part I didn’t get a chance to attend LCM this year for a variety of personal reasons, however I was invited along to a fantastic blogger breakfast at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden by Adam from The Dapper Chapper. It was a fantastic event filled with a variety of Men’s Fashion enthusiasts and authorities including Sikh & Dread, Craig McGinlay and Chris Millington. Mode Media were also there filming a tie challenge video designed to test the abilities of sartorial style experts. I’ll be sure to share it with you as and when it gets published online.
I was always very surprised and flattered to be featured in FashionBeans’ “Best Dressed Street Style of LCM AW16” post, which highlighted some of their favourite outfits seen around London during the weekend. To be included was nothing short of an honour and I’m already looking forward to the next LCM and what it holds for the male blogger community as a whole.
