David Beckham at the Kent & Curwen FW18 launch

While the menswear sector accounts for 27% of the total UK clothing market, it is growing at more than twice the rate of the women’s clothing market (Mintel, 2017). Showcasing British heritage brands to emerging international and national labels and vibrant street-wear brands, the twelfth edition London Fashion Week Men's ran last week with catwalks and presentations across the city. Showrooms at the striking Brutalist building, 180 The Strand featured over 40 menswear brands.

Ben Sherman and Henry Holland capsule collection FW 2018

Collaborations between brands continues to be a strong trend, including a new capsule collection from casual menswear brand Ben Sherman with House of Holland. Musicians have been fans of Ben Sherman since the brand launched in 1963 with Ben Sherman shirts worn by members of The Who, The Specials, Oasis and Blur. So it was fitting that the fall/winter 2018 collection was spectacularly displayed on a catwalk transformed into a 1970s dancehall. Models walked the catwalk and dancers boogied while legendary DJ Eddie Piller spun Northern soul records. The parquet floor patterns of the dancehalls and retro badges, patches and pins worn by 1970s Northern Soul dancers feature in some of the fall/winter 2018 designs.

London brand Oiboy's logo T-shirts

The young duo behind Oiboy follow the idea that "talent borrows, genius steals" by adapting well-known corporate and brand names by changing a few letters or amending the logo. The humorous line includes T-shirts, sweatpants, shorts and bags with a retro Carling beer logo changed to "darling" and the preppy Lacoste name reconstructed as 'Lowcost".
