London’s New Establishment designers Christopher Kane and Jonathan Saunders will show their acclaimed menswear collections, joined by Richard Nicoll debuting his men’s line. Reciprocating the success of their womenswear collections, they are sure to score international attention from press and buyers, and their shows will be highlights of the weekend.
In addition to over 50 shows and presentations, Burberry, Esquire & Mr Porter, GQ and Calvin Klein Collection, Louis Vuitton, Spencer Hart and Tom Ford will host events.
