London photographer David Nyanzi has travelled the fashion circus for five years now, snapping the freshest new trends from around the world. This weekend, he captured some of the best street style looks at London’s menswear fashion week, London Collections Men.
WHAT TRENDS DID YOU SPOT?
”Tailoring for men has gone quite loose; I spotted less of the super skinny and more textured and casual-fit trousers. Navy is the new black, especially when layered up all together and there was plenty of clashing prints to photograph. Stripes with florals and floral on even more floral was popular amongst the fashion editor crowd. I photographed British Esquire’s Charlie Teasdale in an amazing raw edge camel coat. The frayed edge was a great spin on the classic camel shade.”
WHO ARE THE BEST-DRESSED MEN RIGHT NOW?
”After photographing them at LC:M, I’ve added Jack Guinness, Roman Kemp and Teo van den Broeke to my Instagram follow-list. Classic pieces like relaxed tailoring and clashing prints worn in a cool luxe way is difficult to pull off with ease and these guys get it right. At Fashion Week I always look out for David Gandy, Tinie Tempah and Johannes Huebl, plus my fellow street style photographers always look cool.”
HOW SHOULD WE ACT AND WEAR TO BE SNAPPED BY A STREET STYLE PHOTOGRAPHER?
”Here’s my best tip! Most street style photographers are looking for people going about their business, not really looking to be snapped. These are the most interesting and a lot of the time, the most fashion forward. I love catching people checking their phone and chatting with friends; when they are most natural and relaxed. Look nonchalant and you’re guaranteed to be photographed!”

”Back in 2014 I was waiting outside John Galliano’s show in Paris. Hundreds of people were waiting at Palais de Tokyo when Solange Knowles appeared from the show. From tourists trying to get selfies to paparazzi and street photographers – it was crazy! Everyone was elbowing each other to get a photo of her and I was front and centre of it all.”
