Lou Dalton Spring/Summer 2015
Lou Dalton hopes to have shown the future direction of her brand by presenting 25 new looks as part London Collections: Men.
According to the designer, the theme of the SS15 collection is protection and control. The Royal College of Art graduate said it defines “who we are as a brand, who I am as a designer, where we’ve come from, and where we are going now”.
The recent show, held at Victoria House in Bloomsbury Square, delivered a number of minimal looks in blocks of navy, white and pastel pink.
Slightly oversized coats and jackets featured, paired with above-the-knee shorts or slim cut chinos. The classic bomber also popped up in three colour options, all featuring zipper details.
Patches were used as a repeated motif under the arm, as well as on the shoulders and collars of shirts and outerwear.
Alongside a soundtrack by DJ Jim Stanton of famous London club night Horse Meat Disco, Dalton revealed the brand’s first ever bag – an update on the military ammunition style.
The female menswear star continued her relationship with Grenson by creating two new styles in collaboration with the footwear brand.
Meanwhile, eyewear used was the result of Dalton’s partnership with online glasses retailer Ace & Tate.
