In just twelve short months, London Collections: Men has grown from the upstart on the fashion calendar to an established power player, drawing beloved British houses like Alexander McQueen and Burberry back to the English capital. To celebrate the first birthday, Models.com asked Haruki Horikawa to shoot some of our favorite boys in London for the shows in some of our favorite British designers, selected by Chris Benns. Horikawa added his trademark swirling colors to the portraits, in a combination that —like London itself— mixes iconic classicism with a vibrant young energy.
