PIETER was first up on day three of LC:M and the presentation consisted of day wear for the modern man. There were lightweight knits styled under softly tailored jackets, such as jumpsuits and track pants, as well as a lot of subtle slits on a long skirt, flared trousers and tops; a progressive exploration of cut and shape from his previous collection. Some of the pieces were decorated with silver jewellery, adding an elegant twist to the polished pieces.

The highly anticipated JW Anderson show presented a space inspired collection, complete with tiny tools attached to pins and frame metal "handbags" with more trinkets hanging from them. There were wide legged denim structured trousers worn with tops, some of which carried the words "satellite", " asteroids", "stellar", "orbital" and on finer knits the words "news" in vintage fonts. The shoes were a statement as always; small platform red and silver pairs. The colour palette was kept simple; navy and soft whites with pops of red and orange to contrast.

At Margaret Howell we saw the comeback of the socks and sandals combo, paired up with ankle length high waisted trousers, polka dot neck scarves worn with white shirts. Matching beige boxy jackets and trousers, shorts and short sleeve shirts as well as khaki anoraks and simple jersey tops. Understated, but very on point.
James Long showcased brightly coloured knits paired with acid wash jeans and shorts, silk waistcoats and duster jackets embellished in denim and printed patchwork. The laid-back yet structured pieces at Christopher Raeburn and the chosen colour palette of blacks, khakis, greys and muted whites, gave it a grown up feel, but kept it fresh with interesting lengths, printed jumpers and signature animal bags; this season featuring a khaki orangutang.

Sarah Burton at McQueen sought inspiration from the sea for her SS'16 collection and the result was magical. Prints were a heavy feature in the garments, using mermaids and sea creatures on flawless fabrics. The exploration goes further, by looking into tattoos as another source of documenting a sense of adventure onto the male body. The tailored suits, double breasted jackets with extended hemlines and fine knits were all beautiful with an impeccable attention to detail.
