In this context, MCM means Menswear Crush Monday. It’s a bit more of a mouthful to say so I thought MCM would be easier. Enjoy! Oh and also it’s not a Monday… just go with it!
As soon as LFWM started, it’s been jam-packed full of high-octane and innovative male fashion. But the style is not limited to the runway, it spills out into the streets making the men of London some of the most fashionable on the planet.
From the 9th -12th of June, London showed some truly amazing designs. What We Wear, Topman Design, Formal Friday, Astrid Andersen, Daniel W. Fletcher, Songzio and the list goes on and on. As well as the new fashion talent being introduced, the new modelling talent were also introduced.
The 5th Anniversary did not disappoint: The parties did not stop with the opening party on Thursday, One for the Boys gala, Blood Brother after party and ending off with the ASOS Menswear closing party and GQ Dinner.
This blog will be about all of my favourite fashion moments from the runways, the presentations and the streets.
As you have probably seen from my Instagram, I have really enjoyed this season. But needless to say, there were some weird ones. Teletubbies (which were so nostalgic) from Bobby Abley, a circus from Vivienne Westwood and a teddy bear.
The weird and wonderful graced the runways, presentations and streets. Some of my favourite presentations are below:
The fabulous Finnish brand Formal Friday showcase at this seasons LFWM and they certainly made an impact. They have a brilliant selection of amazing versatile pieces.
As said in the video, it is truly hard to believe that LFWM has only been going for 5 years. So many iconic and fantastic designs have come out of London. We are blessed to have this talent right on our doorstep.
Now to talk about my “Ones to watch”
Ricardo Dines (Premier Models) blew us all away in Daniel W Fletcher.

Huge respect and shout out to my bro @ricardo_dines This will be the first of many man, I believe in you! You looked amazing dressed in @danielwfletcher for @londonfashionweek Let's have a look at the rest of the collection! More detail to come tomorrow too. #ricardodines #premiermodels #LFWM #mensfashion #mensstyle #mensfashionstyle #menfashionpost #proud #brother #youtube #youtuber #creative #creator #contentcreator #fashionblogger #styleblogger #fashionista #fblogger #instagood #VictoryforuFashion Victorious Everyday.
With handsome features and engaging eyes, Ricardo is a force to be reckoned with and definitely someone to look out for in the near future.
Zong is also another one to watch. His lovely complexion against some quite avant-garde designs are a perfect match. But he can also pretty much wear anything and look amazing.
There are so many other models that I think are amazing that will all be featured on my Instagram very soon.
And lastly, my favourite newcomer (even though he was here last season) is Tinie Tempah and his brand What We Wear.
This brand excites me and I really would wear most, if not all of the collection. Also, the presentation was just inspired. Big Up to Tinie! Even Stormzy liked it.
I hope that you have enjoyed this blog post and I hope that it has caught you up on anything you may have missed.
I will be posting for most of this week about Menswear on my Instagram starting with my favourite street style moments from LFWM.
