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.

Leather Outerwear

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.

Size Matters

It’s all about the tailoring but it has to be oversized. From Agi & Sam to Matthew Miller, looks consisted of oversized, comfortable and wearable garments.

Unstructured Tailoring

It’s promising to be a lazy winter for men, with several designers turning to a more relaxed approached to tailoring – shapeless suits, outerwear, slouchy knits and low-key separates that were easy and uncomplicated.

Bondage & S&M

Mickey Mouse as a punk in poisonous red tartan at Katy Eary and a kitsch Disney nightmare of ghostly chiffon at Bobby Abbey, S&M maintained a dark grip over LC: M.

Luxe Leisure

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