As we come to the conclusion of our first fashion week of the season, we take a moment to see what one of London Collections: Men's longest featured designers, Xander Zhou, had in store for Fall/Winter 2016.

With the spirit of the late David Bowie weighing heavy over London, the Chinese-born designer's collection oozed glam rock androgyny, while neo-Victorian touches and glittery makeup channeled the frou frou flamboyancy of the New Romantics.

With odes to the '70s a recurring motif all throughout LC:M, Zhou's Fall/Winter range brought forth the era's glamorous exuberance that served as a timely tribute to the Thin White Duke. Polaroid Land rainbow stripes ran across trousers and sweatshirts, giving them a Studio 54 meets contemporary streetwear edge, while conventionally masculine shirts and boxy jackets were dolled up with hints of ribbon ruffled edges and puff sleeve detailing.

Classic trenches and long jackets were scattered throughout the collection in suiting, soft leather and shearling, but were styled over hoodies to preserve Zhou's trademark contradicting sartorial flare. Blaring metallics, another frequent offense witnessed throughout the week's presentations, came in the form of pointed leather boots, jumpers and, my personal favorite, a pair of crimson leather boot-pants.
