LCM | Wardrobe Chameleon - Oliver Spencer FW14 Review

Last one... so sorry (to myself) that this almost spanned over two months. Everything got a bit hectic and I was too distracted to come back and didn't want to commit. Anyway the great thing about Oliver Spencer's designs is his approach to tailoring which is inherently British but his pieces have influences from America and the East. Another great aspect about this show and fashion shows in general is the persistence and mentality that the show must go on. Although there was misadventure with a burst pipe, the show returned to showcase some of the best match ups this AW14 season at the London Collections: Men.

So very into the quilted jacket and floral bomber.

An urban and street style with everyday pieces crossed paths with traditional fabrics. Although creativity is usually about being outside the square, the beautiful thing about menswear is how artists create within the square. I do believe that we are most creative when we are restricted. In menswear, structure and form are so important and sticking to them whilst creating stylish pieces is the great challenge. Once again, highlighting the London show with the strong and quite elegant outerwear, the collection boasted very different looks and pieces throughout. There's kinda something for everyone.
