The physical events at London Fashion Week were scaled down and the usual crowds were missing. But this created a strong focus on a group of key influencers and also allowed for a closer scrutiny of each style. It was a unique opportunity, at a time when fashion events are few and far between, for self expression.
Events bring home the realisation that we are vulnerable and dependent on our health, the environment and each other. This is the mindset moving into AW21-22 and a good starting point for meaningful and authentic discussion.

Menswear is split between styles that follow a fitted retro/classic line, or contemporary shapes full of volume. Styling moves forward with mixed layering – combining sportswear with tailoring and leather or denim. These casual mixes effectively soften the harder lines of tailoring and refresh sporty styles. Detailing is key throughout, but it’s the unexpected design flourishes that’s pushing this season’s menswear forward.
This gender mix reveals how streetstyle fashion is breaking down barriers with more inclusive ways to style accessories. Over 620 images capture the direction of street trends for autumn/winter 2020.
