Kicking off the year in fashion, Men’s LFW commenced on the first weekend of 2019, proving that while many of us had been lazing over the Christmas period, it was a different story for the designers behind some of the industry’s most exciting menswear labels.

The Return Of ’00s It Girl “Out Out” Dresses
Seeing dresses appear on the menswear catwalks is becoming the norm – come on, people it’s 2019. But what we weren’t expecting from Fashion Eastnewcomer Mowalolawas the championing of those itsy bitsy party dresses that 00s It Girlsfell out of nightclubs wearing. Less is definitely more fun.
Animal Talons At Charles Jeffrey Loverboy

(I still love mine). Thought that your penchant for socks and sandals were a little too radical for the mainstream? Wait until you’ve seen Charles Jeffrey’s latest shoe adornment, taking inspiration straight out of Where The Wild Things Are. Boots in all forms, sizes and heels came with claws sticking out over toes.
So, there you have it Guys. He who dares…
