The twelfth edition of London fashion week menswear Autumn Winter event drew to a close on Monday. The four day long event showcased British heritage brands to emerging international and national labels and vibrant streetwear brands. While we definitely know utilitarian clothes are “in” right now and so are relaxed suits, we took things one step further and predicted the next big need-to-know trends. We have shortlisted eight hot-shot styles you can follow this winter.
