London Collections: Men: Lee Roach AW13
Lee Roach went against the grain of the usual mooreish spectacle of print overload that has come to signify young London brands with a very austere collection. His minimal approach to AW13 dressing was refreshing with a very dark monochrome palette that did not feel underwhelming. The silhouette was straight and narrow with tapered nylon trousers, jackets and coats that had a slight boxy cut to them which were brilliant. As were the buckle detailing that featured throughout. Highlights included the puff nylon gilet and jacket that certainly turned the odd fabric choice into something quite luxurious.
