LFW Men AW18 Trend Report: Eclectic Styles at Charles Jeffrey
Heralded as one of London’s brightest young things, Charles Jeffrey’s latest collection was inspired by his native Scotland and overcoming the anger of growing up gay in a straight man’s world.

Men’s hairstyles were separated into three distinct looks- bowl-shaped cuts, sculptural ‘wigs’ that resembled hats or club kid cool styles.
