London Fashion Week Men’s has released the official show schedule for its next edition taking place from 8-12 June, which shows a rise in the number of brands going co-ed on the catwalk (roughly one third of brands will show men’s and women’s collections) but relatively few adopting the see now, buy now model.
The highlight of the four-day event, which is now in its 11th edition, looks like Vivienne Westwood’s joint men’s and women’s show on 12 June at 2pm. While there are few major global names showing at the event (though Tommy Hilfiger will be staging a dinner hosted by David Furnish), it is packed with exciting up and coming talent including Wales Bonner, Astrid Andersen and Charles Jeffrey Loverboy to name just a few.
Those brands and designers opting to go co-ed include: Belstaff, Joseph, Edward Crutchley, Nigel Cabourn, Private White VC, John Smedley, Maharishi, John Sullivan, Maison Mihara Yasuhiro, Blood Brother, Christopher Raeburn, Bobby Abley and Berthold.
A handful of brands will show in-season, using the see now, buy now model, including Dunhill, John Smedley, Maharishi and Bobby Abley, while Fyodor Golan will be showing its pre-collection.
London Fashion Week Men’s (which changed its name from London Collections Men last season) will take place at The Store Studios, 180 Strand. See the full schedule here.
