Rain Men: Topman AW14 @ London Fashion Week

Keep reading to see a video of the Topman Design Autumn/Winter 2014 fashion show, which took place yesterday at London Collections: Men, opened with prose by a Punk Rock-era poet, and ended with an indoor downpour drenching the models. Good thing they were dressed for the weather.

The intro image up top comes via the official @Topman Instagram feed. Directly above are three photos by show-goers that convey the overcast vibe quite nicely. (By Instagram users @DearJackInsta, @DarrenKennedyOfficial and @FunkyFantastic.)

Enjoy the show. That’s “punk poet” John Cooper Clarke with the menacing voice-over at the beginning. Read a full report of the show at Topman Generation.

While the video above depicts the Topman team’s vision for next winter, here are a few Editor’s Picks to achieve a similar look right now. Think chunky sweaters (the more texture the better), long and/or double-breasted coats, and leather (or faux-leather) accents:

Topman (L-R): cable-knit turtleneck | cropped peacoat | marled sweater
leather trucker jacket | chunky cardigan

Topman (L-R): biker jacket | cut-and-sew sweatshirt | long wool-blend coat
faux-leather sweater | cotton trench
