The London Collections:Men kicked off international fashion month with some rather controversial Fall 2014 collections in the mix. J.W Anderson blurred the lines between masculinity and femininity, Katy Eary sent bondage and tortured cartoons down the runway and Agi & Sam had an all black cast. We’ve kept a vigilant eye on the catwalk and here are 5 trends we’ve spotted this week.
From accent panels on a toggle coat at TopMan Design, to a more directional leather coat at Alexander McQueen, the new season calls for elegant leather outerwear in classic shapes.

It’s all about sportier shapes worked in luxury fabrications ensuring leisurewear gets a significant upgrade. Sweats have never looked this classy!
