London Fashion Week Blog - Part Two

James Long's baggy knits and bold use of colour won him points with the fashion team.

In the second installment of our Men's Day blog we unveil E.Tautz's mod-meets-Mr Ripley-inspired collection (complete with requisite ankle flashing), the nut-bar street stylings of New Power Studio (complete with toilet roll and children) and the minimal elegance of Felipe Rojas Llanos' MAN show (complete with blouses, capes and - you guessed it - an Aladdin's cave of cropped trousers).

Eager front row beavers await the looks at James Long. It takes a brave man to pull off a bag handle as a necklace.

Swedish-born designer Felipe Rojas Llanos shone from his slot in Fashion East's MAN lineup, though we don't really see ourselves in silken capes next season.

A recent graduate from London's Central St Martins, Llanos managed to make silk smocks look mean feat.

Morgan Allen Oliver

The weather was suspiciously warm on men's day, but we still found ourselves drawn to Morgan Allen Oliver's intricate array of Knits.

Martine Rose

Another of the three designers showing at MAN, Martine Rose, showcased an eclectic combination of brocade jackets, combat pants and what liked look hats stolen from the heads of Peruvian orphans.

Creative director at E.Tautz, Patrick Grant, talked us through the latest collection with trademark effluence.

"Modish sharpness" was buzz term of the day at E.Tautz. Wool frescos, linens and silks made for relaxed, close-cut looks. Though we were particularly taken with the models' eyewear, which came from Parisian opticians E.B.Meyrowitz.

New Power Studio 2

Thom Murphy's latest collection for New Power Studio started well, with a selection of strong street-inspired looks. Things took a turn for the surreal when a model took to the runway complete with child and multi-coloured Marigolds.

New Power Studio

Surreal turned to downright potty at New Power Studio, when a troupe of synchronised dancers took to the runway dressed in boiler suits and what we can only assume was toilet roll.


Never underestimate the might of a herd of hungry photographers.
