Fresh off the runway in London, consider these images a preview of sorts for Heartbreakers II, our upcoming menswear-themed Pop-In Shop curated by VP of Creative Projects Olivia Kim. Launching in time for Valentine’s Day and running from February 12 through March 13, Heartbreakers II is all about evolving menswear.
One of the featured designers in Heartbreakers II is Beijing-based Xander Zhou–who, fun fact, is also the fashion director at the Chinese version of The New York Times’ T Magazine.
Images below are from Zhou’s recent autumn/winter 2016 show at London Collections Men. That means the clothes are meant for two seasons from now, so none of them will be available for Heartbreakers II. Still, it’s worth getting into Zhou’s world for a second to get a feel for what we’ll be dealing with come February.
