There’s no doubting the behemoth presence of heavy-hitter Craig Green, a designer so influential that he has scooped menswear designer of the year three times at the British Fashion Awards – thanks only in part to his endlessly innovative utilitarian designs.

And the kneel-worthy praise rained forth once again this year as his nomadic tribes took centre stage: “Craig Green’s nomadic men have begun to disband, and gradually discover their individual power.”

The British designer’s utilitarian looks and workwear leanings turned to plastic this season in a shock of rainbow shades cultivated from bin-liner, for quality street vibes abound. Head-to-toe ruching resembled bubble wrap in siren reds, blues, greens and fuchsia.

Elsewhere, harness-style tops with tasselling, slit-heavy plaid flowed to the ankles, and for that close-to-home personal touch, macs were digitally emblazoned with prints based on a painting owned by Green’s mother.

Backstage, Green praised his nomadic man: “[it’s] about a man made of glass, and that idea of fragility and how emotion doesn’t mean weakness, it can also mean strength”.
