Phoebe English, Merit Award Winner at Fashion Scout AW12, presented her AW18 menswear collection at London Fashion Week Mens this weekend. Known for her penchant for creative construction and refined approach to menswear, the collection focused upon charcoal grey, vividly deep navy and the occasional appearance of a powerful red.
With models surrounded by design toiles, the collection featured a collaboration with knitwear designer Helen Lawrence, using soft British lambswool for winter accessories such as hats and scarves. The collaborative pieces were subtle in concept and clear in voice, with notable additions such as buttons and panels elevating the collection from traditional menswear to a modern consumer.
High cuts and elongated sleeves were layered over trousers that fill a space between casual and smart, through innovative use of silhouette and cut.
