LFW Day 6 MENS - Ones To Watch : A.Hallucination

Following their popular London Fashion Week debut last season, A.Hallucination displayed their latest delights this afternoon during the very first Ones To Watch Menswear showcase.

Fusing function with fashion was a key theme behind the design duo’s AW 11 collection. Pockets came in an assortment of sizes, colours and fabrics, all stylishly placed onto woollen pea coats, heavy weight shirts and knitted jumpers, whilst fur collars, suede elbow patches and knitted panels provided additional detailing. The palette of brown, blue, grey and burgundy was similar to that of their SS 11 collection but appeared in slightly darker hues creating a perfect look for autumn.

After a successful collaboration last season, the pair has yet again joined forces with bag designer Jarah Stoop, to create a series of smart messenger bags and satchels. My favourite; a leather back-pack complete with buckles and straps that descended down and across the body forming a bag-belt-braces combo. Mixing a contemporary utility aesthetic with a conventionally smart style is a feature that has effectively become the signature of the A. Hallucination brand.
