Well, hello boys! London Collections: Men kicked into action on Sunday with our favourite male models and dapper stars taking to the runways, front rows and parties. We saw a dose of Hollywood in the shape of Margot Robbie and a certain actor's son on the catwalk, while Lindsay Lohan also hit the scene, and funky hair as well as functional accessories popped up in the collections. Fret not if you missed a morsel - just read on for all the menswear highlights (so far) and see all the starry attendees in the gallery above...
Burberry debuts multi-coloured Pharrell hats
The Burberry extravanganza was as gorgeous as ever with the likes of Jourdan Dunn and David Gandy (in a swanky white suit) perched on the front row and a colourfully painted catwalk. As for the collection itself, Christopher Bailey was inspired by "Book covers and Bruce Chatwin," referring to the English novelist and travel writer who loved an adventure. Cashmere, cotton, and leather were covered in hand-painted motifs and illustrations inspired by vintage book covers. We loved the oversized leather-bound notebooks carried like clutch bags, but it was the headwear that got Instagram buzzing. The bucket hats came in a spectrum of colours and we have our bets on Pharrell snapping up every single one. Watch the full show here.
Hollywood offspring on the DKNY catwalk
On Sunday, DKNY MEN presented their SS15 collection with real people and models alike taking to the runway - and there was one Hollywood actor's son who caught our eye. 'Cutie Rafferty Law is walking for #dknymen tonight! Hope daddy is a proud papa!' DKNY PR girl (aka: Aliza Licht) trilled on Instagram last night. Yes, Jude Law's 17-year-old son and model-in-the-making popped up at DKNY looking super-cool, cementing his place amid the London fashpack. Also excitingly, Eliza Cummings was the only woman in the show, joining the boys looking gorgeously androgynous and showing off her punky cropped hair.
The boys hit the FROW
As well as the catwalk action, LC:M brings us some top notch front row action. Fashion's finest polished their brogues and pulled on their sharpest suits with the starriest line up yet coming courtesy of Superdry. Jesse Metcalfe with his lady friend Cara Santana and Josephine de la Baume with Mark Ronson crammed onto the VIP seats at the show on Sunday. Naturallement, David Gandy was also in attendance while Nick Grimshaw has already put in plenty of appearances as part of his new role as LC:M ambassador.

Festival essentials from Superdry
Speaking of the Superdry extravanganza, we're desperate to get these fuss-free numbers into our festival wardrobe. The sports-casual collection featured thigh-skimming shorts, tie-dye T-shirts and rucksacks perfect for this summery weather.

Moschino spoofs Hermès and Louis Vuitton
The fashpack had been waiting on tenterhooks for Jeremy Scott’s first-ever menswear show for Moschino so it was no surprise that the space was crammed with guests, many of who had to stand around the seats to get a peek. The collection included what we love most about "Fauxschino", with Macdonalds references being replaced by the trademarks of Louis Vuitton and Hermès. Scott's tongue-in-cheek signature also popped up courtesy of smiley faces printed on bomber jackets and glittering gold slogans reading MO$CHINO.
The boys embrace the crop top trend
DKNY Men throw a fabulous party
Esquire and DKNY hosted the official opening night party, transforming One Embankment in London into a New York cityscape complete with a wooden catwalk. The fun kicked off with a DJ set from Nick Grimshaw who got guests - we're talking Mollie King, Lindsay Lohan and Jourdan Dunn - dancing while sipping on Peroni Piccola and Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve cocktails.
Hair goes funky
LC:M is guaranteed to throw up a few shockers and this year, it was the hair-dos that got the FROW gawping. The model army at Christopher Shannon showcased twisted locks teamed with multi-coloured sunnies while we saw a variety of spiky fringes at Nicomede Talavera. Not sure we'd like to see our boyfriends rocking these 'dos on a Saturday night though...

Jeremy Piven does the splits
None other than Samuel L Jackson arrived in town to host One For The Boys Fashion Ball, a cancer charity gala held at London's Natural History Museum. The event pulled in donations as Simon Pegg, Lewis Hamilton and David Walliams strutted their stuff on the catwalk, Zooalander style. But it was Jeremy Piven throwing some impressive shapes that had the crowd hooting. Check out those flexi moves!

Margot Robbie brings the glam
Adding an extra dollop of Hollywood hotness to the proceedings was Margot Robbie who joined Samuel L Jackson at the gala. Hats off to her for going gorgeously girlie in a silk top and asymmetric skirt covered in a blue lotus flower print from Vionnet's Spring Summer 2014 collection.

Brilliantly bonkers accessories
We saw fisherman hats with built in visor sunglasses at YMC while Christopher Raeburn incorporated backpacks into khaki jackets. Nifty and functional or way too wacky? We think a little bit of both.

Nicholas Kirkwood gets colourful
Now on his fourth season, Nicholas Kirkwood's signature aesthetic is fast developing. His considered attention to clean lines, unusual colour combinations and unexpected fabrication equalled a sharp and refined collection with a summery spin. It featured four key men’s silhouettes - the derby, oxford, loafer and the men’s sandal - in a range of colours including blush pink and mint green accented by taupe, red, black, white and blue. What's more, a short film was projected onto ginormous screens in the space to celebrate the presentation. Yes please.
