MAN: Men's Collections AW14



Right now it’s all about the Men’s Collections: AW14. With a little time out of the office I dropped backstage at the TOPMAN Show Space at The Old Sorting Office for a sneak peak at the goings on for the MAN show. Under the MAN initiative for AW14 was Alan Taylor, Bobby Abley and Craig Green – each working some very cool (and very different) lines on the runway for next NEXT season. 

Right now it’s all about the Men’s Collections: AW14. With a little time out of the office I dropped backstage at the TOPMAN Show Space at The Old Sorting Office for a sneak peak at the goings on for the MAN show. Under the MAN initiative for AW14 was Alan Taylor, Bobby Abley and Craig Green – each working some very cool (and very different) lines on the runway for next NEXT season. And, with the FUDGE hair teams on hand - there was some SERIOUS man 'dos going on too!


The whole VIBE of this show just worked. MAN pulled in some exciting people from the industry – including the likes of Henry Holland and of course Tinie Tempah – the Mens Collections Ambassador sitting on the FROW. And the invite? Well it turned out to be quite a thinker! After ripping open my envelope I was confronted with a blank card (both sides blank that is) and, very oddly – a shiny two-pence piece. It turned out to be like a giant scratch card – and after quite a bit of excited scratching – the details, location and timings of the show instantly emerged! GENIUS!



For me, however, it was Bobby Abley that really nailed the show. The designer brought back his eclectic Disney influences and teddy bear obsession – embracing these affectionate references and baring them naked against some SERIOUS mouth/grill hardware. I loved the humour that threaded its way through the designer’s latest line, as well as the urban sports luxe element that emerged from Bobby with his cool digital prints, sheer fabrics and light-as-air fluffy sweaters. And, that soundtrack? Bobby? I can’t tell you how awesome that was. 






A BIG thanks to FUDGE & Esscence PR for inviting me!
