The dedicated menswear day at LFW is definitely cause for excitement, the names might not be as big as on the womenswear schedule but in terms of creativity and variety it’s hard to beat. Here’s a preview of some of our fave designers from the line-up, stay tuned for more.

We featured Carolyn Massey‘s Topman Lens collection back in July, a stickler for tradition with an eye for detail she produces contemporary menswear tailoring.

Tim Soar is another designer who appreciates traditional menswear values, Soar applies quality and craftsmanship to his ’50s influenced clothing. Soar is working this season with Atsuko Kudo and Christopher Raeburn who are respectively known for their mastery of latex clothing and reworked military garments.

James Long, an RCA graduate, hasn’t let the theft of his A/W09 collection stop him. Harnesses and pockets blur the lines between accessories and clothing, and Long has also designed a line of bags.

Tim Soar’s collection will be shown together with the b Store show, James Long is showing as part of the MAN showcase and Carolyn Massey is showing alone, all at the BFC tents.
