As we can see, some of the trends used in the collections are ones that are already big currently. Trends such as monochrome colour, pastel colours, gold & the smart casual look are staying firmly where currently are!

Lou Dalton’s dry, distressed look had intriguing prints. John Smedley had sporty turtle-necks. Kay Kwok caught eyes by mixing sandals with reinvented formal wear. Dominic Jones opted for the less is more look with his fantastic new jewellery. Topman revamped the cowboy look. Hardy Amies’ mixed patterns at the top of the Gherkin. Astrid Andersen’s mix of fabrics & shapes interested all. Jonathan Saunders gave classic items a new edge with two-tones, prints, patterns & fabrics. Mr Start’s classy looking collection comprised of formal & casual wear. Lee Roach’s jackets & coats gave the “tied round the waist” look a new flair. Hetsch Man’s “cool men” sported the aging rocker look by chatting & drinking beer in the funky S/S14 collection & their mass of head & facial hair. Richard Nicholl used shades of colour, transparency, prints & wet look materials to create a stylish collection. Gieves & Hawkes delivered a collection stylish suits. Agi & Sam used soft colours giving their collection a fun look. Spencer Hart made used monochrome to make formal magic. He added pastel colours to give fun & variation to their S/S14 collection.
