The New Names on the LCM Spring/Summer 16 Schedule

Henry Holland 

Ever since London began to kick start the men’s week marathon, it has become known as the city of risk-takers, churning out the next generation of extraordinary talent. The schedule has been finalised and with a few shuffles, including Nasir Mazhar moving from his regular Monday spot to Friday, after a clash last season with #MargielaMonday. Other than that, not much has changed, but the new names on the schedule are…

House of Holland – Sunday 14th June

A regular to the London Fashion Week line-up, Henry Holland will be debuting his menswear line during the shows next week. Words like ‘fun’ and ‘pop’ spring to mind with the mention of the House of Holland label. Like it or lump it, the Lancaster-born designer exceeded all expectations of being a one hit wonder following a debut collection of CAUSE ME PAIN, HEDI SLIMANE and DO ME DAILY CHRISTOPHER BAILEY slogan t-shirts. Almost a decade later and Holland has built a lifestyle brand featuring eyewear, swimwear, a diffusion line with Debenhams and now menswear. If his look is anything to go by, we can expect skinny jeans, oversized herringbone print blazers in retro colours and a quiff.

Pieter – Sunday 14th June

Since graduating from the London College of Fashion, Sebastiaan Pieter, has slowly been building a cult-like following. His debut collection, which was hailed for its unique blend of androgynous tailoring and Middle-Eastern silhouettes, began his series of off-schedule LCM shows, praised by Charlie Porter and SHOWStudio’s Lou Shoppard. This season he’s opening Sunday’s line-up hours before Jonathan Anderson.

Charles Jeffrey – Monday 15th June

Charles Jeffery is the Central Saint Martins graduate, whose ‘odd, yet captivating, and, in fact, usable’ designs caught the attention of American Vogue. His MA collection, shown in February, earned him a place in the Fashion East installations alongside industry favourite, Grace Wales Bonner. Although this is his first presentation under the Fashion East roster, Jeffrey’s has been making headways in the illustration and exhibition world.
