Vibrant and sleek, summer isn’t just about beach hair and cut off denims.

Launching for Autumn Winter 2014 are two distinct new ranges from Eastpak: the vintage-inspired Authentic Lifelike and the Authentic Re-Check collections.
Richard Nicoll has launched a summer sweat-shirting capsule collection, exclusive to Net-a-Porter, which takes direction from his Mens/Womens AW14 collections and captures the casual, sportswear feel that has become so influential to his recent work.
A hauntingly magical collection with memorable references to Star Wars in the form of Darth Vader shirts, Zhou played with a futuristic feel using thick looking silver and gun metal grey material in various textures while downplaying the trip to outer space with neutrals and denims to keep it grounded within the now.
For SS15 Casely-Hayford focuses on duality in various aspects of their collection. They’ve aimed to juxtapose painterly with graphic, formal with relaxed and business with punk on a canvas of “culturally significant garments that are defined by their normality”.
Shirts with cartoonish huge eyes and scary cats with slogans stating “acid club” created a street style attitude to the collection.
The show starts with Rhythms Of The City, a Brazilian percussion group, silently filing out into the show space at the Old Sorting Office barefoot with their instruments. They burst out loud and spirited samba beats for a minute, setting the lively atmosphere, before the first model makes an appearance.
The fashion of the 90′s doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon nor does the obsession with black. Buttoned up shirts were worn with matching knee length shorts and, if not in black or monochrome, were in bold red, primary green or deep purple.
A major factor contributing towards Christopher Raeburn’s collection this season is his consideration towards “reintegration, reappropriation” and ultimately; recycling. He has launched the REMADE range to continue on his commitment to sustainability, while also taking design inspiration from the items he’s reusing.
