Mr Matthew Miller, for his SS13 presentation at London Collections Men, to put it VERY simply, showed the strongest looks of any other designer brand over the course of the three day schedule.
Whilst this relatively new menswear label, was amongst a sea of notable and credible designers, from the opening of the show, to the close of look 16, the collection showed the talent of one man, who breathes his life and soul into what he produces season after season, and creating with that a legion of avid fans.
Short shorts, sleeveless jackets, denim with bright white knee patches and shirts inscribed with a cut away CCTV message, all took a confident stride down the runway, in a monochromatic colour palette which showed off the collection to maximum effect. Not to forget what Miller does best though, we were given a dose of print, which made an already beautifully cut suit, even more of a show stopper.
Returning for another season, was a shoe collaboration between Miller and Oliver Sweeney, and if possible, these pieces have outdone the current collection, which are due to hit stores in the next few months for AW12.
This was without a doubt, the standout show of the entire LCM proceedings, and we wish that we could type the prediction of “Big Things” for team Miller, but after seeing his SS13 show, it would take a fool to not clearly see the epic rise that he is embarking upon.
