London Collections Men:
A Front Seat Invite Into #LCM through Brother2Brother’s Eyes!
As an Independent Designer Retailers we are ecstatic every time we get personally invited by some of the brands that we sell & some of the brands we would like to sell in the near future. We had tons of Invites coming through the post and we made sure that Brother2Brother made an effort to get to as many of the Shows/Catwalks & Showrooms as we managed to. A few of the following brands are some of the ones that gave us the great pleasure to stock & sell such as Aquascutum, Belstaff, Moschino, Versace and so forth!

As in the Video above there were more than a handful of A-List Celebrities in attendance such as Lewis Hamilton (Above), David Gandy, Tinie Tempah, Nick Grimshaw, Dermot O’Leary, Oliver Cheshire, Pixie Lott and that’s just to name a few! But we will be name dropping a few more throughout this blog! In true LCM spirit each and every single person brought something different to the Front Rows, Middle and Standing! We love a good mixture of styles all together without being out of place.

There’s a bunch of Designers that we also got invited to their shows/catwalks such as Cottweiler, Oliver Spencer, Nasir Mazhar etc.
A few Designers catch our eyes with their unusual prints, colours and style! HouseOf Holland opened with a huge first season at the fashion show. They mixed old school with new school for the New Generation Retro look, which they incorporated all over prints, large logos and loads of text. Another brand i took a liking too was Domingo Rodriquez with his foresight to Forward Fashion thinking, but also we used to intern for Kim Jones and Carolyn Massey and has successfully collaborated with Phi-Nom Leather, Saga fur and Kopenhagen fur.
