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... Suit up Relaxed tailoring was the order of the day at E Tautz (pictured right) and Tiger of Sweden. Inspired by the miners of the 1930s, E Tautz’s smoggy and slouchy collection was a huge hit for AW15; loose-cut trousers and blazers were teamed with crisp white shirts or chunky fairisle knits, as well as heavy, structured overcoats. An abundance of grey checks, flannels, tweeds and wools made this collection totally season-appropriate – cosy, but cool. Tiger of Sweden are known for their skinny-fit suits and the brand’s AW15 collection was as sharp as always, but given a more casual vibe, as smart trousers and sheeny jackets were paired with fine-knit jumpers, t-shirts, bomber jackets and snuggly oversized coats. The rule of thumb for laidback tailored style this winter? Stick to darker shades, and layer them up in warm, wintry fabrics. Minimalism to the max Craig Green stayed true to form with a minimal palette, interesting shapes, simple yet stunning details, and barefooted models. Harking back to his SS15 collection, Green’s catwalk had an aura of calm; fabrics were light and billowy to help construct a new silhouette (tight at the top, with wide parachute pants) with loose-hanging strap details and some degree of oriental influence, with obi belts and warrior-esque tabards. The restrained colour scheme of black, white and red – with the occasional pop of bright red or bottle green – reflected the pared-back, minimal, Zen-like feel of the overall style of the collection. While we don’t expect everyone to rush out and buy parachute pants ahead of next season (truth be told, they’re just plain impractical in the face of blustery British winter winds), Green’s simplistic approach to colour is certainly one to take on board.
