Celebrating the creative diversity in London today with Charles Jeffrey “Loverboy” in the British Fashion Council Show Space at 180 The Strand in London.
Now LOVERBOY brings his own joy to London Fashion Week: Men’s with a extravaganza theatre extravaganza parade. The wonderful world of LOVERBOY is full of fantasy, genderless creatures, sissy characters, authority figures celebrating the queerness we have inside of us.
“LOVERBOY” quoted a yellow sweatshirt with a long skeleton printed in black, you can see paradoxical artsy shorts, like every model has its own story-teller, like artsy painting and headpieces from Leo Carlton.
Charles Jeffrey inspires himself from arts, theatre, films, famous painters like those of its subcultural ancestors (think Taboo, the Batcave, Blitz), which saw gangs of outrageously dressed eccentrics descend on to the streets of London, LOVERBOY’s origins were DIY – an empty slot at Vogue Fabrics, some handmade, giant hearts and pictures printed off the internet and stuck up haphazardly on the walls.
Made in Britain, this is the finale of a good –but short– London Fashion Week Men’s exhibition. The shortlist for fashion’s most prestigious International prize is dominated by a buzzy wave of London-based designers.
