MAN today showcased three up and coming menswear designers all worthy of note: Matthew Miller's Olympic sailing inspired collection; Martine Rose's gossamer shirts over candy coloured polo shirts reflected the minty pastels on the womenswear catwalk; and Shaun Samson's Mexican (?) striped textiles used throughout the collection.
Afterthoughts on the womenswear and recurring themes: toned down fetish with strapping around waists, necks and breasts; minty pastels (ugh); combinations of chocolate brown and black - so so good; and mad prints either digital or floral. Transparency was also a big theme as too were silky or viscose textiles. Flow was crucial.
