Our Highlights From London Fashion Week Men’s

Over the last 6 months London Collections Men has evolved into London Fashion Week Men’s. The aim of the move initiated by the British Fashion Council was to “recognise its equal importance to womenswear” and if you look at the stats it makes perfect sense. The men’s clothing market grew by 4.1% in 2015 and is expected to rise a further 22.5% by 2020 (Mintel’s British Lifestyles 2016). The 10th edition of the showcase was opened by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who called it “a truly international celebration of fashion, design and creativity”.

Join the Printed Tote Bag Movement

The popularity of the humble cotton tote has been on a steady increase since 2007 when designer Anya Hindmarch teamed up with Sainbury’s in a bid to encourage a more eco friendly approach to carrier bag use. Her canvas ‘I am not a plastic bag’ tote sold out within an hour. The amount of people who actually used their purchase to lug home their weekly shopping is probably close to none (they still retail on Ebay for around £100) but they were instrumental in fuelling the tote movement.
