London Collections: Men - Day 1

Post Christmas sales are on the streets, good intentions for the new year are floating in our minds and nearly forgotten, new season garments are appearing at our favorite shops.
But still we have more than one reason to stick ourselves onto winter's mood, and it's because London Collections: Men fashion show.
For three days we will be enjoying next winter's trends from both heritage and emerging British talent. Masters on tailoring like Mr.Start and Hackett London presented their smart suits on Day 1, satisfying the high expectations of the savvy audience.
Orange will be the key color, along with blue, burgundy and of course the ever present grey, black and white. And keep an eye on double-breasted jackets, as it's one of the main trends for the AW13 season.
There was a star that shined more at the show. Or should I say two stars? Designers Agape Mdumulla and Sam Cotton, bright minds of Agi & Sam, presented an unconventional collection, based on British heritage, country life and eccentricity. There is a promising future of this young fashion brand.
Shine and sheer were present at various shows, with metallic hints on trousers and jackets. The sportswear influence was strong on Astrid Andersen and Lou Dilton, and John Smedly gave it a sailing/rugby twist with black and white stripes combined with red.
Topman Design opted for an utilitary look with parkas, mountain boots and baggy trousers, and Lee Roach gave a more contemporary look to men's casual wear with its buckeled jackets.
Here's a sample of the best of Day one at London Collections: Men.
