Like menswear, but prettier.

The images of Liberty’s autumn collection have been doing the rounds online, shot by Ben Toms, who’s work will can be recognised from editorals in Dazed and Confused and AnOther Man.

We really like the slightly subversive style with the use of fine silks, floral print and rich purples. It comes at a time where the main trends for menswear include workwear and a resurgence of classic tailored styles. Hopefully the use of florals in menswear will continue, as seen here and in offerings by Jaiden RvA James (below).

And while we’re on the subject, we would love to see more obvious fetish inspired items such as the harnesses, rubber and kilts / skirts seen in their collection. Granted the pieces probably wont be accepted by the general public and the excitement gained from such items is partly due to their taboo perception, but they sure do liven up things up in a somewhat stale menswear environment.
