London Fashion Week A/W 2011 Menswear Day Presentation Review: Mr Start

Mr Start showed his sartorial style at One Aldwych during Menswear Day at London Fashion Week… fab suits, shame you could barely see them… with illustrations by June Chanpoomidole, Joana Faria and Maria Papadimitriou!

To those of you that have been to any of the Start boutiques in Shoreditch you’ll know they represent a relaxed luxury that more than compliments the clothes. This is most true for the mens formalwear boutique. I love it and could quiet happily spend hours in there. So when I saw that the Mr Start presentation was being held in One Aldwych I was very excited. Having graced the lobby bar with my presence on at least  one occasion to sip their very tasty cocktails, price I couldn’t think of a more suitable venue. Sadly we were shuffled downstairs to a tiny and ill-lit room. Pleased we'd arrived early to avoid the mounting queues, for sale myself and Matt surveyed the clothes.
