One of our favourite things about London Fashion Week Mens is witnessing the continued evolution of the Alex Mullins brand.
The autumn collection was the most mature yet, from a designer that been schooled at houses as prestigious as Alexander McQueen and Diane Von Furstenberg. As ever, Mullins took an obscure source of inspiration and ran with it. This time, it was the neurological; a study of the left and right side of the brain. Don’t ask us which side is which, but apparently one side dominants our emotional side, and the other, the creative side.
The clothes seemed to be a mash up between both sides, best represented where tailoring was spliced by bursts of colour. Suits were cut boxy and the contemporary white and grey, a perfect canvas for the vibrant, hand tie dyed prints. These vibrant pieces were outstanding and some of the best to appear on the catwalks over the three days.
Everything was treated with that unique brand of Mullins magic. Coats were clinical, button fastenings were on the rear or the side of jackets, shirts were cutaway (bring autumn trend) and styled with neon orange denim. The designers face was even snapped and smashed (via digital print) onto trousers and suits, perhaps a visual reminder of how self obsessed we all are.
