Preceding Paris Fashion Week and Pitti Uomo, London Collections MAN kicks off the Fall/Winter 2017 menswear show season. On the radar for many is Craig Green, who has been on a steady tick upwards since his debut in 2013. His latest coastal inspired collection strikes a delicate balance between conceptual and practical, with rug-like, woven patchwork pieces exemplifying the former and utilitarian gray, dark navy and black outerwear and trousers representing the latter. Somewhere in the middle is oversized and quilted combat vest's and coats in luxurious leather and suede as well as puffy scuba inspired insulated pieces. A signature of the designer, we see elongated drawstrings and straps throughout the collection. Stay tuned for more from LC:M in the coming days.
