Clash infiltrates the studio ahead of London Collections: Men.
Lou Dalton - SS16

What's the mood for SS16?
Euphoria – an intense state of transcendent happiness combined with an overwhelming sense of contentment.
1988 – Factory Records 

Sum up the Lou Dalton casting situation in five words.

What song’s currently on repeat in the studio?
‘DELTA DAWN’ BY TANYA TUCKER, heard this recently on an episode of Desert Island Discs, slightly obsessed with a little bit of country and the likes of Loretta Lynn, I was a little disappointed to have only just become acquainted with the above track now.

SS16 hero of the hour?
Massimo Osti 1988 circa.

Post-show, what are you drinking?
As common as it sounds, good old Prosecco. 

Which other designer will you then rush off to see?
Lee Roach and James Long; as my show is on the 13th, I will be working prior to that so will not have the opportunity to show support to Craig Green, Chris Shannon and Kit Neale which has become my seasonal ritual.

And the biggest surprise of the season so far?
Having been given the wonderful opportunity to spend time in Biela in Italy at the home of Lanificio Cerruti with the wonderful Nino Cerruti and his team. All made possible by the wonderful support of The Woolmark Group.

Lou Dalton will present on schedule at London Collections: Men this Saturday; image from the SS16 moodboard.
