Hard to believe but, according to the fashion calendar, it’s already time to look ahead and see what we’ll be wearing for Autumn/Winter. See what the best names in menswear design have in store, and make sure your fashion game is one step ahead, with The National Student’s round-up of the top trends from each day of London Collections: Men's AW15... ‘70s style Topman Design’s (pictured top right) ‘Bombay City Rollers’ AW15 catwalk show was jam-packed with 1970s influences, from fringed suede jackets and ponchos to kick flares and dramatic turn-ups on jeans, not forgetting the Bay City Rollers-inspired tartan scarves worn on some models’ wrists. Shearling and tartan were dominating fabrics – the latter being perhaps the more wearable of the two, printed all over fitted longer length suits, or as a trim on classic denim jackets. Come autumn, keep your eyes peeled for ‘stars and stripes’ embroidery, fringed details, shearling trims, and the return of the flared trouser! Novelty knits Bold jumpers and sweaters are pretty much guaranteed to brighten up your wardrobe this winter, if collections from Kit Neale and Christopher Shannon (pictured right) are anything to go by. Neale’s nostalgic, almost childlike embellishments included geometric shapes in primary colours, names appliqued in sequins, and sewn-on patches. Shannon’s sportswear-influenced sweaters, however, bore graphic collage motifs and thought-provoking slogans, including a carrier bag emblazoned with ‘Thanks 4 Nothing’ and a can of ‘Broke’ cola; a playful, easy-to-wear trend.
