The countdown to the 2013 London Collections: Men has officially started. The event timetable has just launched, and boy, does it promise the biggest and best year yet. The three-day schedule was announced at a party thrown by Dylan Jones, Editor of GQ and Chair of the London Collections at the British Residence of the HM Consul General in New York. Not the most obvious choice of location to celebrate a London-based fashion event but as Jones explained, “I am sure David Cameron is sick with jealousy because the views from here are much better than the views from Downing Street.” We couldn’t possibly comment.
While we welcome the luxury powerhouses Burberry, Pringle, and Jimmy Choo back into the fold with their first menswear runway shows on U.K. soil in years, we’re most keen to see emerging U.K. design talent have their chance to shine through the Newgen Men show on Sunday, June 16. It’s a joint collaboration between Topman and Fashion East to showcase looks from three of the most promising menswear designers in the capital. Watch this space. (WWD)
