There was something that felt very Japanese about Lou Dalton’s presentation earlier today at London Fashion Week Men. Perhaps it was the bold unabashed use of color, or the bobble-textured pullovers in her Fall/Winter 2017 collection. Child-like but never childish, Dalton’s collection paired whimsy with crisp denim separates — the aesthetic marriage resonant in all the right ways. It felt tasteful, but light-hearted. Little details like the short scarves and coordinating beanies brought her designs to life, as if lifted straight from the pages of a children’s book.
