LFW ss10: What I liked from the menswear day

Menswear isn’t usually my forte but I love to look at it to see what elements I can steal for myself. From Katy Eary I would take the furry jackets, from Martine Rose these colour-block patchwork shirts with panels of pinks, greys and black-and-white polka dots.

Casely-Hayford’s Kings of the Kingsland collection was meticulously styled and cast. His different take on tailoring with elastic hem trousers, neckscarves, Crombies, trenchcoats and lounge slippers all caught my eye.

Marc Hare from Mr Hare has one of my favourite menswear blogs and his shoe collection brought a steady stream of eager onlookers. All his shoes were original and brilliant but especially this flat slipper-like slip-on.

As I’ve said before, menswear design always seems so much more functional than womenswear. If only we could have a womenswear take on H by Harris’s quilted leather jacket with its zip-on-zip-off backpack.
