This weekend saw the return of the renowned London Collections Men event, this time to showcase the styles and trends that we can expect to see in spring/summer 2016. The biggest names in the world of men’s fashion were out in full force, displaying the intelligent designs and creative concepts that will dominate men’s fashion next year.
Here at Mankind we’ve been glued to the weekend shows and we can’t wait to see the influence of the ranges on upcoming 2016 trends. Although all of the shows and collections have blown us away, we’ve put together an overview of some of our personal highlights so that we can get planning our purchases ahead of the spring.
Statement prints are the name of the game for the S/S16 collection from Coach. Teaming a plain base with one or two stand-out patterned garments is a great way to express your style whilst keeping it cool and casual. Whether it’s a colourful psychedelic design or a two-toned patterned piece, make sure that your spring summer 2016 wardrobe contains some striking garments so that you can nail this look for yourself.
If bold and striking isn’t your style, then the Belstaff collection may be more up your street. Their S/S16 collection showcased at London Collections Men is all about mixing and matching neutral shades for a more subtle summer feel, with an air of the adventurer running throughout. Placing the statement chunky jackets & overcoats over lighter t-shirts and teaming with pale slim-fit trousers just shows how this collection can take you from the fresh spring air into the heat of summer.

House of Holland
The House of Holland S/S16 collection is one that you don’t want to miss out on if you dare to be different. This is the brand’s first menswear range, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint with retro prints and fonts over both bright and subtler shades. The collection seems to be all about expressing your unique personality and spreading the love, so make sure that you embrace the House of Holland range with open arms next year!
With intricate patterns and defined shapes, the S/S16 Alexander McQueen collection radiates stylish sophistication. Whether it’s a detailed statement design on a long, otherwise plain overcoat, or a repeated pattern covering a two or three piece outfit, the range perfectly balances strong shapes with intricate, fragile designs to create garments fit for the modern day gent.
Replicate the slick wet looks of the Alexander McQueen show with the medium-high shine, long-lasting Uppercut Deluxe Men’s Deluxe Pomade.
