Continuing to support creative talent in menswear, MAN, a collaborative effort between Topman and Fashion East, is out to showcas the best of emerging menswear talent in London. In the past, Man has supported innovators such as Kim Jones, Derek Walker, Siv Stoldal, Cassette Playa and James Long to name but a few.
For the coming season, MAN has set the sartorial bar high, welcoming back Christopher Shannon and JW Anderson to the runway. Showing for the first time at MAN will be exciting newcomer Katie Eary, discovered a mere season ago by Fashion East, and whose installations at the Old Embassy Town House were received with gushing accolades.
S/S 10's MAN participants will showcase their collections alongside the new Topman Design range, and in celebration of the event, Topman will be including the A/W 09 mainline collections by Christopher Shannon and James Long (shown at last season’s MAN show) as part of their retail collection at Topman Oxford Circus. The new retail space on level 2 of the flagship store will be unveiled, along with the new names fostering there, during fashion week in September as part of a huge overhaul of the forwarding thinking high street brand. A special project between JW Anderson and Topman will also come to light later on in the year.
