Kicking off London Collections: Men we’ve started off by seeing the Universal Works presentation, which really takes us, for lack of better description, Back to the Basics.
The collection, entitled “Pass” presented the public with simple, muted and well, basic garments. Comfortable, movable clothes, nothing overly trendy or edge pushing, but well-tailored, for a man that needs that something to go with everything. Functional and refined, the presentation wasn’t the typical static representation, nor a runway show, but rather a choreographed selection of movements showing off the garments wearability and design aesthetic.
Button-up cardigans, refined blazers and tailored baggy pants cuffed at the ankle were of the few of the trends lightly represented within the collection.
Is this mind blowing, edge pushing, craziness? Definitely not. Is this wearable for a 2015 man who wants to look stylish, but not ostentatious? Absolutely.
