Mesh looks from Christopher Raeburn, James Long, and Astrid Andersen

Here’s to a mild Spring in good old London Town. A trio of the city’s brightest young talents turned out options for the season that are—let’s say—not exactly weatherproof. Mesh, particularly on sleeves, hooked and needled its way down London’s Spring ’14 menswear catwalks.

James Long showed a sextet of BMX-influenced tops, including a contrast-zipped bomber fashioned entirely out of thunderstorm-gray netting (above, center). “It was based on the hell track, the cultlike attitude toward cycling clothes,” Long told, adding, “My mesh pieces would look really cool with an old band T-shirt—they’re easy to wear, and quite effortless.”

Eco-conscious Christopher Raeburn—long heralded for his creative, pop-bright spins on outerwear—offered a particularly fetching sweatshirt in oatmeal, sleeved in matching mesh (above, left). And lastly, mesh and webbing abounded in Copenhagen- and London-based Astrid Andersen’s Spring lineup. We particularly enjoyed this transparent green top (above, right), which the designer showed peeking out from beneath a white lace T-shirt. “My label has always been fixated on the athletic male and his obsession with the gym,” said Andersen. “The sheer material works well for our customer who loves to mix that expression with other brands.” An added bonus: In places, Andersen complemented her diaphanous duds with accents of Danish mink.
