Fashion East brings us three talented designers and three exciting collections on the second day of London Men’s Fashion Week.
Whenever the name of Fashion East is mentioned, it is always exciting and expectant for people. As a platform with objective of supporting Emerging British Talent, Fashion East brings us our favorite designers, such as JW Anderson, Craig Green, Simone Rocha, Ashley William and Liam Hodges, but who will be the next one? Fashion East AW19 gives us the answer.
First, Robyn Lynch who graduated from University of Westminster MA Menswears presented her first collection, which was inspired by her father’s dress style. The whole series is composed of rich blue, white and green. The loosely silhouetted tracksuits, roomy zip-up jacket, the broad, high-waisted jeans, and nylon shorts, aran knit with nylon insert in the sleeves, Robyn not only show us her father’s wardrobe, but also the image of a warm huge boy.
Then, Mowalola led us feel a sexy wild commotion. She described her work as ‘a celebration of the black African male’. First, an yellow and black leopard print halter-top caught our attention, and then the presence of barely-there bodysuits, cut shirts, brightly colored skinny leather pants, hyper-sexual liberation, and micro-minis and pebbled calf or lambskin jackets pushed the series to its climax. It all seemed crazy.
As the last collection with Fashion East, Stefan adopted new technique in this season, and he called it “ghost printing.” And then we can see white tassel-fringe on black balmacaan, this look was accessorised with a 1930s transparent handbags in collaboration with TD KENT, and black and white tight hollowed-out knit and a zip-up coat with vintage doilies print jacket. Yes, it was right that Stefan Cooke and his partner Jake Burt did not seem to disappoint us, maintaining a high standard and complete design this season.
