LL Cool J’s ‘Something like a phenomenon’ didn’t just make a good acoustic start at their show at London Fashion Week Spring Summer 2012 menswear day but are the right words to describe the newcomers from Tom Lipop, last season’s ones to watch.
Yeah, we were about to rip off those braided sandals – the model’s feet were too tiny for them anyway. Luxurious fabrics and progressive technical cutting made an all chic, classical and well styled collection with a lot of attention to details. Jil Sander-esque and inspired by historical lineage of British fashion, it is for the modern urban man adjusted to high temperatures. This summer, the polo shirt can stay at home. Just because we might not be pulling off those fur framed coats during summer doesn’t mean we won’t rock that net shirt or those laser cut jumpers with the leather backpacks. To finish off, Missy Elliot instructed: ‘Work it!’ Hell yeah, we will.
