Chinese designer Xander Zhou has been a staple at London Collections Men since 2012 when he was sponsored by GQ China to show. We got introduced to the Industrial Design trained creatives aesthetic that saw him work with loads of innovative fabric in new ways. For spring 2015 the vibe from the show was youthful, pop and bling. Star Wars and particularly Darth Varder played a recurring theme with certain prints.
There was a play on shirt collars and everything from oversized to funnel was put out there. There's also an interesting use of mesh for oversize coats, hoodies and crewneck tops. The shorts in the collection look a lot loose in the look-book as opposed to the runway where they were super tight. Everything looked amazing on the runway and even looks better in the look-book.Looking forward to the AW15 show at LCM next month.
