After launching the MAN event ten years ago. Topman Design has gone on its own and London Fashion Week saw the first stand alone Topman Design show. MAN was set up by Topman as a way of portraying upcoming menswear designers, which back then included Topman Design.
The show (held at Somerset House) showcased the latest collection and its European City influences, the collection featured some of the most wearable designs that the in-house design team have produced since their launch in 2005. Oversized tee’s and camouflage prints paved way for the wool jackets and the unstructured male fashion the brand hopes to coin. But by far the stealer of the show was the paper-bag trousers, similar to those seen on Jaeger catwalk.
The show definitely put menswear back on the fashion map, throughout London and due to Topman Designs worldwide presence (available in Tokyo, Hong Kong, America and Sydney) the brand is building a reputation with fashion packs on several different continents.
