Meet The MAN Line-Up For SS17

MAN

Ding dong, it’s time for another helping of man-based goods courtesy of Fashion East’s announcement this afternoon, where Lulu et al revealed the three designers who will take part in this season’s MAN show. It’s all change – with Rory Parnell-Mooney and Grace Wales Bonner graduating the scheme, it’s paved the way for newcomers Fengchen Wang and Per Götesson, who will join Charles Jeffrey Loverboy, the only designer to have shown last season. A few crib notes on our new faces – Feng is from Beijing and has already been shortlisted for the LVMH prize, whilst Per is finishing his MA at RCA and making garments that have pockets big enough to hide bottles of wine on the bus. Is he single? Sponsored once again by Topman, the designers will show their wares during London Collections: Men in June. We await with much-baited breath. Congratulations to all!
