London Collections Men Sponsors & Suppliers AW16

Official Sponsors

GQ
As Britain’s most successful men’s magazine, GQ is once again thrilled to be an Official Sponsor of London Collections Men. The showcase of the best of British menswear and the country's biggest-selling upmarket men's publication is a natural fit – rather like the perfect bespoke suit. The extraordinary success of LCM, now in its eight season, proves that London is unquestionably the centre of the menswear universe, from the technical perfection of Savile Row to the directional dynamism of young British designers, this is the epicentre of men’s fashion. In print, across our digital platforms and on social media, GQ’s coverage of the event will be second-to-none, and we know – and our data tells us – that our readers are hungry for the inside track on what is coming down the catwalks, who’s in the front row and what’s happening at the presentations and the parties. GQ is all about British men’s fashion and we are proud to say that we are officially at the heart of London Collections Men.

Lavazza Coffee
Lavazza is excited to be sponsoring London Collections Men for another consecutive year. Press, buyers, designers and models can reward their hard work with a cup of Lavazza coffee. Lavazza will be served throughout the four-day event, across all locations, so you won’t have to go far to enjoy the real Italian espresso experience! 

Founded in Turin in 1895 and owned by the Lavazza family for four generations, the company is now among the world’s largest coffee producers, and has just celebrated its 120th anniversary. Lavazza’s presence at main international events, such as London Collections Men, shows their dedication to bringing real Italian espresso around the world. Lavazza will be ensuring the fashion elite get their caffeine fix during London Collections Men (8th - 11th January 2016).
