Matthew Miller SS19

This season Matthew Miller teamed up with footwear giant K-SWISS to bring his ’REDUX’ collection to LFWM.

The collection which was showcased in the underground Q CarPark of London’s Chinatown brought an industrial spin on the classic Miller designs we are used to seeing.  The collection is inspired by the desire to focus on sustainability rather than accessibility and draws attention to the future of fashion in an apocalyptic dimension.

Miller also collaborated with Peli to design a collection of hard case backpacks, bum bags and clutches which resemble a hybrid toolkit to help transport those essential items should it be the end of the world next summer. Other key items include the tin foil trenches with matching trousers and the popular K-Swiss sliders in red & black worn with socks.


Michiko Koshino

Michiko Koshino’s SS19 collection took on LMFW with a tropical inspired theme this season. The brand showcased bold jungle prints splashed with eccentric hints of colour. The diverse, fresh faced male models stood proud on the raised platforms complementing the artistic visuals which did not go unnoticed.   

Koshino gave us ’Chilled Caribbean Vibes’ and the laid-back feeling was further emphasised with a 3D cloudy sky backdrop. Adding fresh hints of greenery and flowers within the footwear designs, Koshino also adds coconuts to the bold statement shoes giving them that extra ‘je ne sais quoi.’  

The gender fluid yet bold prints break down the boundaries of ’the modern man,’ with crop tops, oversized shirts and trousers, and even a statement rainbow-coloured dress.   

This is a bold collection which is clearly pushing the boundaries of gender stereotyping.

ASOS SS19 Presentation

Kicking off LFWM in style, the brand hosted its SS19 presentation in the Uber cool Ham Yard Hotel Rooftop with chilled music, a BBQ consisting of tuna steaks and grilled Halloumi, and a garden that brought the styles to life. 

The design team have boldly been mixing textures and print together whilst accessorizing key looks using neon yellow bum bags and pastel coloured socks with mixed print shorts and sports performance eyewear. 

This season it appears ASOS accepts that a British summer includes the inevitability of rain. However, this high-street giant does not let us forget about the sunshine, bringing about a weather worthy collection of PVC and translucent trenches paired with bright pops of neon as well as candy-colour shirts and shorts.


What We Wear

Tinie Tempah appears to be officially hanging up the mic, as he showcases a fresh collection for WWW (What We Wear) SS19 at LMFW this season. The collection is a modern take on active sportswear, football inspired stripes and two-toned colours which have been heavily incorporated into the collection.  

Variety is the main objective as the collection ranges from tailored waist and bomber jackets, right throughto pops of colours which have been integrated into the key styles including burnt orange drop shoulder tees, tie-dye shirts and a signature yellow traffic cone PVC coat with reflector detail. Tempah’s use of layering ranges from stylish dark blue shell suits, chic t-shirts and jumper combos with embroidered badges, paired with shorts or even trousers.

Let’s not forget these trendy outfits can be paired with fashionable accessories. The bum bag is clearly here to stay with knee-high socks and trainers to finish off the look.




Oliver Spencer SS19

Oliver Spencer took the audience into his very own secret garden this season, boasting a bohemian video projection of visuals which featured his favourite florals whilst greeting his audience with a smokescreen and 70s music as a warm up pre-show.  

The ’Miller Army’ showcased male models wearing sleek-tailored trousers, khaki boiler suits and accessorized full looks with the very hippie daisy chain. British designer Spencer yet again showcased a collection with accents of his personality and brought the countryside to the BFC show space with a nature-esque soundtrack of mellow music with birds whistling in the background.

Although the clothes which featured classic tailoring with a modern twist did most of the talking, it was the models that gave a realistic essence of the modern man.  Spencer’s male army consisted of men of all ages and backgrounds giving a platform for diversity in the industry. As we all know the lifespan of a male model has been noted as short-lived, however Spencer appears to be celebrating age, size, colour and personality of the male this season.

The must-see colours of SS19 boasts soft palettes of warm beige, salmon pink and of course white.
