The Split-Second Preview: James Long-------
The Spring ’14 menswear collections are under way in London, and they’ll continue with the shows at Florence’s Pitti Uomo, in Milan, and in Paris. Before their wares hit the runway, we’ve asked some of the most anticipated names to offer a sneak peek. Per usual, it’s a busy time for all—designers and fashion followers alike—so we’re continuing our split-second previews: tweet-length previews at 140 characters or less. Our complete collection of Spring ’14 previews is available here.
WHO: James Long
WHEN: Tuesday, June 18
WHAT: “Welcome to the velodrome. Influenced by cycling, SS 14 has gloss, sweat, rubberized mesh, zips, hoods, satin and bonded lightweight leather.” —James Long. The designer sent us a snap of his Spring ’14 kicks, which were a collaboration with Kurt Geiger (above) as well as a peek at his mood board (below).
