The great and the good of menswear flocked to the UK capital this week for London Collections Men. To mark the occasion, we bring you a special report from the show. We also look at what else is going on in the city and check out a new concept store in Shoreditch.

The first part of Monocle’s report from London Collections Men. Patrick Grant, creative director and owner of E Tautz, fills us in on what he’s up to at the show (and we have a word with some of his models). We also talk to up-and-coming British designer Logan MacKay.

There is, of course, plenty going on in London besides London Collections Men. Exciting design experiences and retail opportunities abound, including Modern Society, a new concept store in Shoreditch. Monocle’s Ilana Hanukov caught up with Nazifa Movsoumova at the shop on Redchurch Street to talk design, coffee bars and how people living in the fast lane just want to slow down.
