Men's fashion usually moves at a snail's pace, but some of the designers who presented their collections in London over the past few days have proposed a few looks for men that are light-years ahead of the modern preppy feeling that predominates current men's clothes.
Take for example the open-weave, short-sleeved sweaters and shorts that came down the runway at the Sibling show alongside the brand's easy-to-wear denim and knits. Or JW Anderson's lacy halter-top shirts for men (perhaps this season's answer to the scalloped skirts and tops he presented in his men's Fall 2013 collection). And then there are the multicoloured pieces at Man — a group presentation consisting of clothing from designers Craig Green, Bobby Abley, and Alan Taylor — that look more like wearable sculptures than anything one might find on the rack at Barneys.
A glimpse of those very experimental looks and more, here in the gallery.
