LFW Day 6, Ones To Watch MEN - Asger Juel Larsen

Very rock and Roll !

show stopping detail - clever political messaging with sharks teeth!
check out those boots and great black leather jacket - where does he stock his collection please ? I know a few guys who would want to buy this
Sharks teeth top hat  - I like the chain mail effect knit gillet over the black denim jacket.

Perfect proportions on this coat, love the hat with it - so cool! I can see Russel Brand in this! 
flamboyant styling, clever references
leather and wool coat, good styling details 
references to American indians in the styling - so cool!
great styling
check out the back detail 
great coat here - like the leather trousers too - very rock and roll

Asger Juel Larsen, fashion fame beckons.....

 I really enjoyed the four shows presented by Vauxhall Fashion Scout on Wednesday afternoon in the Freemasons Hall, Covent garden. The last designer to show was Danish born Asger Juel Larsen with his Uncle Sam collection. I was blown away by the sheer flamboyance and originality of this talented designer. He did his MA at the London College of Fashion and gained a Harold Tillman CBE Scholarship soon after.
He also won joint  prize for an industry project with Turkish Luxe label Tween and reached the final stages  of the prestigious Mittlemoda Awards. As you can see Asger uses historic events as inspiration, he blends unusual materials to create a silhouette that is sharp and structured. If you look beneath the fabulously cool styling and clever political digs of this collection there are great clothes. This collection's styling is very rock and roll and would be great as a look for a band - I imagine many stylists will be clamouring to get to these clothes for editorial fashion shoots - I would like to see them in Dazed and LOVE magazine.I also tip Asger will be styling rock and roll musicians in the future, watch out Hedi Slimane  - Go and rule the fashion world Asger! 

Thank you to all of the great designers at Ones to Watch, we have so much talent in London.
