Vintage sci-fi references continue to reign strong this season. We spotted this stylish futuristic 1970’s dude at London Fashion Week, his fusion of unconventional red plastic paneling and vintage sensibilities create a cool wearable approach.
Whilst one half of this ensemble screams sci-fi femme, the other half dips into demure ladies who lunch. A perfect conflict of new and old, this stylish futuristic lady teams sci-fi oval silver framed sunnies, quilted silver foil sweater over a fluorescent green t-shirt, black loose jeans, hyper-real bright tri monk strap shoes with a vintage plush fur coat and needlepoint bag.
An ethereal purity breathes fresh air into this formal futuristic ensemble. Teaming a modernist structured leather paneled zip-up jacket over a smart roll neck and flared trousers twin-set.
Nautical sensibilities are key in this mariner look we spotted during London collections: men, teaming a shrunken nautical crew neck knit over a white t-shirt, 70’s baggy trousers, eastern print shopper and finished off with J.W. Anderson brogue creeper hybrids.
Inspired by the first of the snowy showers currently outside the LSJ office, this stylish chap’s unique take on novelty winter jumpers is making us totally jealous. Teaming a Shaun Samson oversized furry voodoo print sweater, casual 50’s blue denim turn-ups and finished off with smart smoky blue and alert orange trim boaters.
Spotted at London Collection Men we spotted this stylish chap wearing a fusion of Dick Tracy tailoring juxtaposed with eastern prints. Teaming a fedora with white sci-fi inspired sunglasses, camel overcoat, white shirt, east meets west single breasted suit, brown crocodile luxe leather tote and gold studded brogues.
Straight off the alps this look teams ski sports elements to streetwise shapes. Teaming a square beaked cap under a burnt orange over-sized hooded cagoule, graffiti & paint splashed draw string shorts and accessorized with a pink furry backpack and fuchsia and black hybrid trainers.
Equestrian style is the key foundation to this street style look, conjuring up visions of great Lords of the past. Teaming an equestrian peaked wool cap, a long line double-breasted short suit with a purist roll neck and waistcoat combo and finished off with school boy knee length socks, floral brogues and a patent leather sandwich bag from Jil Sander.
Whilst the backward baseball cap and bomber jacket say streetwise subculture swagger the other half is full of modernist sportswear aesthetics. Teaming a two-tone striped modernist bodysuit and a sheer navy performance t-shirt with a pair of hybrid prada levitate trainer/loafers.
Bucking the recent trend for black & white, we spotted this stylish chap teaming a masc-femme pink casual suit by J.W. Anderson with a yellow-pop tactile clutch, silver studded dandy slippers and palette cleansing white shirt on the streets during London Collections men.
Romany hedonist fuses subtle romany heritage and hedonistic attitude to create an unique streetwise take on the heritage gypsy look. Teaming a roller-neck appliqué placement scarf, teddy bear fur coat, acid-wash super tight jeans, a tan leather embossed artistic print bag and skyscraper tall hybrid platform loafers by J.W. Anderson to complete the look.
Bringing a touch of scottish heritage to the streets of London. This stylish chap teams a blue & green plaid tam o’Shanter cap and golden caramel scarf with a formal dark navy winter conscious longline minimalist overcoat for the perfect contemporary scottish look.
Spotted amongst Brick Lane’s bustling sunday market, this stylish street styler fuses St. Trinians’ school girl uniform sensibilities with opulent winter lady chic.

Street meets vintage Hollywood starlet in disguise drama, big sunglasses check, classic rouge lipstick check, black hat check and finished off with a childlike metal horse motif. Perfect!
Taking inspiration from Canadian mountaineering roots, this rebellious chap flips mountaineering work-wear on its head, creating a rugged hybrid interpretation. From the elongated ode to Canadian millinery mountain hat teamed with the updated wool and leather paneled overcoat embellished with punk memorabilia to the hybrid golf shoes with air soles by Prada to give this a sporty urban touch.
