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.

Felipe Rojas LLanos 2

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.

Felipe Rojas Llanos

A recent graduate from London's Central St Martins, Llanos managed to make silk smocks look masculine...no 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.

"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.

Snappers

Never underestimate the might of a herd of hungry photographers.
