The lineup of budding menswear talents set to showcase their designs at London Fashion Week Men’s (formerly known as London Collections: Mens) next month for the Fall 2017 season has been announced. According to WWD, for the first time ever, designers for both Fashion East and MAN will show at Topman’s show space: The Old Selfridges Hotel.
The Fashion East designers—alumni of which include Grace Wales Bonner, J.W.Anderson, and recent British Menswear Designer winner Craig Green—will include James Buck and Luke Brooks of Rottingdean Bazaar, and Eden Loweth and Tom Barratt of Art School. The designers for MAN, a support initiative launched by Fashion East and Topman in 2005, include returning talents Charles Jeffrey Loverboy, Feng Chen Wang, and Per Götesson, all of whom will stage a group runway show.
“Charles Jeffrey returns to the MAN lineup for third time, and we are intrigued to see what Feng Chen Wang brings to the catwalk this season, after such as impressive debut,” Topman creative director Gordon Richardson told the trade. “Per Götesson also returns for a second time, but this time around he is showing a full catwalk collection.”
As the schedule begins to take shape, it looks like this menswear season is off to a promising start.
