Songzio SS18 London Fashion Week Men's
Zio Song’s SS18 Songzio collection was beautifully themed by ‘Man, in his night, searches for his own light’ – i.e. look, men have feelings too. It perfectly represented what we have come to love about LFWM in recent years, which is this sense of a prising open of society’s expectations of the male as dark and strong and unfeeling to reveal something much more colourful, creative and vulnerable underneath.
SS18 seemed the collection of a travelling man, from the loose fit Nehru suits, to the tasselled pants and fairground leathers. We loved the stripes, which were reminiscent of both deckchairs and pyjamas – we couldn’t decide which. The blue and coral/orange looks in layers of stripes were the stand out pieces for us. Half sleepy, hazy chateau days, half dapper dandy, they made some seriously slick impact.
