LCM: 10 THINGS TO DO THAT DON’T REQUIRE A TICKET

June 9, 2015

FashionLondon Collections: Men | by Mikael Jack


LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN is only three days away and over its seven seasons, the buzz surrounding it has grown and grown. Now, rather than sitting at home watching live streams of shows (you can catch up later on candidmagazine.com anyway!) or hanging around Victoria House spotting the wonderful (and often weird) wardrobe creations of the editors, buyers and bloggers entering and leaving the shows, everyone can get involved. As London celebrates menswear this weekend, here are the 10 best things to get up to this LC:M – plus our very own addition, The Grooming Room – should you find yourself lacking a show ticket. There’s no use wasting a good outfit lying around the house, and from meeting J.W. Anderson and Henry Holland to discounts and Guinness, you’ll probably have more fun than them anyway!
