Xander Zhou S/S 2014 by Isher Dhiman
Sometimes I look at fashion week press releases with the same disdain that I do art gallery captions. I have absolutely no idea where some of the designers (or press personnel) get their ideas from. I often stifle giggles as I read them, waiting for somebody to pop out and say 'we had you there, didn't we!' And so it was highly refreshing when I arrived at Xander Zhou, my final show of this London Collections: Men season, to find not a rigid press release but a selection of thought-provoking words. Words like 'personal' 'cosmetic' 'online' 'variety' and, erm, 'Thai boxing' flooded a sheet of purple card.
