The recent London Collections Men event has yielded no shortage of spectacular presentations for this year’s forthcoming menswear collections. Adding to the roster is Lou Dalton’s 2016 fall/winter offering informed by the rich history of the Shetlands, a region which serves as a second home for the designer. Highlights in the selection include teddy fleece bombers, cable-knit pieces, nylon trousers and waterproof overcoats. As evident in the dynamic selection of materials, the label plays with an array of silhouettes that highlight loose-fitting and laid-back styles. For this set, Lou Dalton has also teamed up with British heritage shoe label Grenson on a series of lace-up hiking boots. The tonal white model is executed in a sleek, minimalistic profile while the black variation showcases a steel detail on the toe. Bringing together a palette of earthy tones, the overall collection is a cohesive set inspired by a combination of the countryside and sea.
