Y

es, the world’s fash­ion cap­i­tals are show­cas­ing next year’s spring sum­mer trends on the run­ways this June… Paris, Milan and now even Lon­don – yes, this is the first time Lon­don is fea­tur­ing men’s col­lec­tions.  Yes, I was again caught off-guard. Yes, as usual was super busy and thought had plenty of time to tune in….Woke up on the last day of Lon­don Fash­ion week though all is not lost, it’s just the begin­ning of trend’s watch…

Lon­don Col­lec­tions: Men’s — Fri­day June 15th to Sun­day June 17th

Men’s col­lec­tions are show­cased twice a year every year in Milan and Paris – Jan­u­ary and June with­out fail. This year, Lon­don also adds its two cents worth. This new run­way event /fashion week comes imme­di­ately before the June’s Euro­pean col­lec­tions.

 

HRH Prince Charles offi­cially launched the first Lon­don Fash­ion week at a recep­tion at St. James Palace. He report­edly told his guests at the recep­tion, “I’m find­ing it very hard to live with myself, ladies and gen­tle­men. Because some­one sug­gested that I might be an icon of fash­ion. After 64 bleed­ing years, I don’t know why.”

 

He added: “I have lurched from being the best-dressed man to being the worst dressed man. I don’t know why — pre­sum­ably it sells pub­li­ca­tions. Mean­while I have gone on, like a stopped clock — and my time comes around every 25 years.”
