London Collections: Men Day 2 started off bright and early with  Hunter Gather and Orlebar Brown Presentations.  Following that, we were able to catch two fabulous shows, YMC (front row!) and Oliver Spencer.

YMC

This company began in 1995 and designs with the idea that form follows function.

This season for their SS14 collection, YMC presented a collection of minimal silhouettes, laid back looks with fun patterns.  Stripes and patterns were both present in the collection.  The looks were accessorized with hats, berets and sunglasses.   Colors were muted, focusing on deep green, blue and purple.  Cuffed pants and shorts were present in a majority of the looks

BDMOTP favorite: Striped blazer

OLIVER SPENCER

When a live DJ walked to the center of the show space, I knew things were about to get very cool, very fast.  This SS14 collection was influenced by a variety of themes such as art, architecture and some of London´s underground sub-cultures.  Again…cool.  What really stood out in this collection were the coats.  Spring jackets, linen coats, all sorts of funky ways to create new shapes and silhouettes using flaps and buttons were present on this runway.

BDMOTP favorites: brimmed hats and navy jacket with brown popped collar

JAMES LONG

Before the BDMOTP team headed to the airport, we were able to catch one morning show on Day 3: James Long.  This SS14 collection, entitled ¨Beyond the Velodrome¨ was named for and inspired by cycling.  Mesh, Lycra, zip up jackets and leather and silk bomber jackets all made an appearance.

BDMOTP favorites:  striped knit sweaters
