London’s top menswear designers take on rave culture and functionality for autumn/winter 2017. Coincidentally coinciding with the sequel to Trainspotting, it would seem everyone is a bit nostalgic for the 90’s with no want or need to wake up to our uncertain future. The Sybarite picks out the top five trends for next season…

Wide Leg Trousers

For Craig Green, Casely-Hayford, J.W.Anderson and Liam Hodges, it was go big or go home. Pagan knights were a reference for J.W.Anderson,

whilst ‘anonymous travellers’ appeared in the show notes for Craig Green. Similarly, Astrid Andersen went with ‘masculine opulence’ and Martine Rose looked at ‘bankers, office workers, bus drivers’.

90’s Ravers

Christopher Shannon’s show included hoodies worn with dungarees, fluorescent flashes and painted face masks. Meanwhile, clothing and

accessories with a focus on function and utility were spotted in the form of Craig Green’s jumbo puffers inspired by deep sea diving kit and Matthew Miller’s rucksacks with climbing fastenings.

From graphic hoodies and psychedelic knits at Topman to fluoro yellow tees and fur-trimmed jackets at Liam Hodges, it looks like investing in

toxic tones is set to be one of your greatest sartorial investments of the year. Also seen at Christopher Shannon and J.W.Anderson.

Purple Reign

For Cottweiler and Christopher Shannon, the hue adorned two-piece tracksuits, while Xander Zhou contrasted royal colouring with a stiff shirt and menacing gloves.

Puffer Jackets

The swaddling coat has been a huge hit in recent months as designers get to grips with the need for functionality and designers like Casely-Hayford

and Astrid Andersen successfully elevated the piece from faux pas to fashion forward.
