Five menswear insiders to follow on Instagram

As LC:M kicks off, we bring together a writer, buyer, model, designer and casting agency that you need to hit ‘follow’ on

Today marks the beginning of London Collection: Men – four days of stellar menswear shows across the capital. If last season was anything to go by, there’s a lot to look forward to. We saw Sibling relaunch the “bumster”, Charles Jeffrey host a club night-esque presentation and Katy Eary unveil t-shirts printed with X-rated My Little Ponies. To make sure you don’t miss a trick over the next few days, we’ve compiled a list of menswear insiders to keep you in the loop. While they work in different capacities across the industry, they all share a knack for the ‘gram. Get ready to hit “follow”.


Alexander Fury is a journalistic force to be reckoned with. Formerly the editor of LOVE magazine and fashion director at SHOWstudio, the famously sharp-tongued and quick-witted writer is now the fashion editor of The Independent and and, as of this week, men’s critic of American The wordsmith shares his wealth of fashion knowledge via Instagram – posting iconic magazine covers and ad campaigns, interspersed by cheeky memes (often featuring Carrie Bradshaw). Follow Fury for tongue-in-cheek updates from fashion’s frontline.



In 2009 Stavros Karelis threw open the doors to his Soho-based boutique known as MACHINE-A. Since then, the store has gained a reputation for stocking clothing designed by the industy’s newest fashion talents. Because Karelis wears his love for emerging designers (quite literally) on his sleeves, he’s risen to become one of the most photographed fashion week attendees. Expect to see front row snaps from the fashion’s next big things, and maybe the odd selfie.



AM Casting’s Angus Munro and Noah Shelley are two of the most sought-after casting directors in the biz. In the past, they’ve provided Kanye West with an apocalyptic army for his Yeezy Season 1 show and Rick Owens’ with an all-female step-dance crew. As well as West and Owens, they count Ann Demeulemeester, Calvin Klein, Diesel, DKNY and Helmut Lang among clients. Head to AM Casting’s account for exclusive pics of the modelling talent they’ve elisted to walk the LC:M runways.



Thanks to his soft pout and razor sharp cheekbones, Sol Goss was one of last season’s most buzzed about breakout boys. Signed to Supa Model Management, he walked for the likes of Burberry, Alexander McQueenJ.W. Anderson, Prada and Louis Vuitton, the latter of which he opened. Between editorials he’s appeared in, blurred images of his “boys” and photos of the cities his burgeoning career has led him to, Goss’ Instagram offers an candid insight into life as a model. This season, expect more smouldering shots of the model – from backstage and on the runway.



As a designer, J.W. Anderson is known for thinking outside the box. Founder of his own eponymous label as well as the creative director of Spanish luxury house Loewe, Anderson’s is lauded for his boundary-pushing, gender-defying approach to fashion. It’s not surprising that he’s also a dab hand at Instagram, posting a steady feed of visually appealing images from stills from classic films, art that inspires him and the modernist interior of the home that he lives in. Follow Anderson for a greater insight into the man behind one of menswear’s most important labels.



And don’t forget Dazed Fashion! We’ll keep you up to date and inspired with takeovers, behind-the-scenes coverage from our fashion editors, projects with top secret designers and the latest fashion news.
