A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
The biker boy is traditionally fashioned from layers of beaten-up black leather. But Neil Barrett softened this iconic menswear statement into something fresh for spring, cutting it from reams of brilliant white. The various forms of biker jackets and their accoutrements - namely long sweatshirts with flap sides, wide shorts or skinny pants - glowed like layers of pristine snow, and were interrupted only by the intermittent edge of thick silver zippers. Barrett applied the same cool approach to jean jackets and Harringtons, cutting them all from sturdy chinos or from quilted cotton engineered to look like invisible camouflage. Later he moved in navy and camel territory, finishing with a classic black flourish, but the cool effect of the icy whites lingered in the summer air had us begging for more - as did his slip-on bootie version of the Vans shoe in graphic black and white.
