Liam refines his patch work track suiting while also unveiling the brand's first foray into denim, with a selection of washes and styles. Ultimately acting as a new focus for the designer. This season also sees him build new celebrations, with his customised carry accessories being made by Côte&Ciel. Other parts of the collection feature legendary Italian sports brand - FILA. Liam utilises FILA's distinctive colour blocking aesthetic, including a take on his very own trademark jerseys. Also featured in the collection are FILA's 'Original Fitness' sneaker, a style that has been with the brand since 1987 that has been reimagined with a "mad texture" and Liam Hodges and FILA dual branding.
Liam has also taken inspiration directly from FILA's first creative director Pierluigi Rolano, and his interest in American iconography. Liam also plays to his stitching techniques with a feature pinstripe detail synonymous with the FILA brand. Other traces of FILA's legacy can be found in Liam's flat lock stitching detail which references the classic FILA Settanta Mark 3 jacket which was worn by the tennis legend Bjorn Borg in the 70's.
Liam's SS18 collection keeps the integrity and important of being open to new ways of "mashing it up!". Refining the designer as a staple in the LFWM schedule.

Situated in London‘s most creative and engaged district, Ace Hotel Shoreditch is surrounded by the theatres performing banned 16th century plays, design and street art destinations. The echoes of industrial and artisanal past within the architecture invite the creative society to start-up studios where makers and thinkers appreciate all handmade, generate new ideas, innovate and inspire each other. Ace is the place where all promising talents meet and work, together or alone, sketching, writing, listening, talking and typing. The lobby is the place to exchange, work and deal 24 hours a day. The hotel is a hub that represents the modern culture of today, and the new way of being and working: be it morning, day or night.
The space is divided into an open series of room-like zones, part of it equipped with a full bar and a gallery space where different personalities, styles and cultures come together to create. This is a place where the newness happens.
And for Le Mile, besides the perfect environment, efficiency and productivity at its best, we had a lot of fun and enjoyed every minute of our stay. From the mornings at Bulldog Edition with the coffees of the very-best-beans from Square Mile Coffee Roasters ‘til the evenings at modernist Hoi Polloi brasserie and Gallery Bar serving breath-taking Espresso Martinis.
We’re glad we were there and... Ace, thanks for sleeping with us too.
