LONDON — A light schedule was presented at this season’s London Fashion Week Men’s, with many big-name brands missing from the short three-day list. To pad it out, and introduce some new names, the British Fashion Council introduced the Discovery Lab, a platform to showcase emerging local talents. The result was that retailers paid attention to both new and young labels and said that their creativity really shined through.
“Print and pattern is king for spring ’19 and it should be worn clashed,” said Simon Longland, general merchandise manager for men’s wear and sports at Harrods. He also said London is a great place for new talent, and men’s fashion week continues to spotlight and champion emerging talent.
