LFW AW16: Street Style
By Matt Glazebrook, 24 February 2016
Fashion week has just finished in London, which means we can finally get a flat white on Brewer Street without a street-style snapper demanding we flash Blue Steel and show off our 'fit (the struggle is real). Turns out, though, we weren't the only ones plagued by the fashion paparazzi. Just look at these AW16 heroes.
This guy is all about 2016's key colour palette. Forest green, khaki for days – even the burgundy that's currently leaping straight from Kanye's Yeezy Season 3 presentation into our wardrobe. Carrying around his own set of garage doors to coordinate with his on-trend colour scheme might seem a step too far but hey, street stylers gotta street style.
None of this fella's bits are revelatory but he’s fitted them together expertly. The camel overcoat and Breton-striped top are contrasting but complementary style staples, the cuffed smart trousers show off his Vans Old Skools efficiently, the cap and specs that look they come in an awesome set. It's basically fashion Lego.
We've said it before and we'll say it again. They’re called autumn/winter shows for a reason, and those 'gram-worthy garms ain't going to cut it if you're shivering like a leaf while you're waiting for that lady with the clipboard to find your name near the bottom of the ’standing section’ list. You need a big coat, friend. Just ask Mr Ace Blue Parka over here.
