London Fashion Week is upon us and what better way to refresh our memories of the highlight from LFWmens SS16?
The Guardian have created highlights in pictures – click on the link below.
There are three defining themes to SS16 for men:
1. Colour – bright and bold it’s time to shine

Slowly I am finding my step in the casual wear section. For years I have struggled to really settle in with my casual wardrobe, it’s been quite a hassle especially from the kind of the street wear background that i got sucked in at an early age.
