BDMOTP kicked off London Collections: Men with a visit to the circus. Well, not exactly…the Universal Works fashion house got a little creative this season and offered up a vintage circus theme and experience. Don’t go thinking clowns and elephants though–the designs weren’t really circus like at all–think vintage-esque long jackets, modern separates and hipster sweaters and ski hats.
The looks were conservative, but not frumpy, instead stylish and up-to-date. Touches of plaid and screen printed t-shirts made the collection relevant in today’s fashion scene. The circus was all in the accessories…not belts or cuff links, but cotton candy, popcorn, even a live goldfish in a baggie. If this is what the circus is like these days, well, sign me up!
