London Fashion Week presents the latest men’s fashion 2017

The transformation in our world today is not just a positive desire right now. It’s about survival. All forces are claimed and there is no understanding that anyone should remain indifferent to this topic. Not even in fashion. Sustainability and environmental protection, along with political and historical messages, have been the main aspects at London Fashion Week for men’s fashion. Can you really make a difference and do you even want to do that? Or is that another sales strategy? We leave the questions open and only present moments from the show that lead to a suitable answer.

The socially critical exclamation of men’s fashion 2017

What should one believe – words or actions? Vivienne Westwood shows herself through several articles against injustice in the world. She also speaks openly about using fewer clothes in the luxury industry. At the London Fashion Week, the men’s fashion collection shown was a demonstration against climate change.

  That was the politico-social aspect. On the other hand, the presented fashion pieces are real works of art and are certainly not offered and sold in too large a number. They have a very pronounced symbolic meaning, which stands for a new direction of development in fashion.

Street style and war as the primary stimulus

Symbols of wars

The same trend can be observed with other designers and their collections. The military style has always been represented on the fashion podiums. In the Christopher Raeburn collection, for example, but it looks more off-putting than chic. The clear message behind it should be interpreted roughly as follows: We no longer enjoy war, but much more responsibility for the people on this earth.

Sporty and well equipped

This was also clearly expressed in the press release about the fair.

Military style in comfortable fabrics and knitting patterns

Very original, but somehow very modest, so a number of other collections also have a lasting effect. For example, Jonathan Anderson’s work is also like that. The military aspect is also present here, as the shape and layering of the clothing is very reminiscent of equipment. But a peaceful message can be read through the cozy fabrics and the peaceful ethnic elements.

Political events move fashion

Sporty style and survival symbols

Sporty clothing in a very rough style was seen on the catwalks. The emphasis was on the equipment, which includes everything for a survival camp. In a more positive world, we would consider these collections to be adventurous. But given the current circumstances, we have interpreted it as an indication of imminent danger.

Lively accents

In between these dark collections there seemed to be some more elegant and pure exotic items. And also as a bit arrogant. Still, you stick with it – there are many collections with a strong effect. But they are not very wasteful either, because the expensive and effective textiles are only placed very carefully at key points.

Gangster style is back at the forefront of street fashion

Athletic clothing

Astrid Andersen’s street fashion collections are an example of what has just been said. She combines hip-hop and basketball styles. The models are also pepped up with details made of velvet and fur. By the way, these two materials are very popular in all areas of fashion and design in 2017.

Christopher Shannon’s streetwear clothing is also inspired by sport. You can recognize this by the colors such as neon yellow, for example, and also by the trousers that can be closed with buttons on the side.

Social problem that seeks expression through fashion

Urban fashion also looks sophisticated this year

Is it a pose or an expression of a real attitude? Or does fashion take on its role as art and simply wants to reflect the tendencies in people’s thinking? You can decide for yourself! In any case, it works well as a marketing strategy, because the London Fashion Week 2017 was clearly very attractive for viewers and therefore successful.
