Xander Zhou unveiled his Spring/Summer 2015 collection during London Collections: Men and stunned audience members with his modern translation of nostalgic grunge styles.

Channeling youthful skateboarders, models took to the runway stage in oversized suit jackets, lightweight coats and sporty sandal accessories that refined a classic skater aesthetic.

Though the edgy menswear line did boast a number of sporty details, it also featured deconstructed suit looks and sequin sweaters that were sported by long-haired and effortlessly cool models. These specific pieces added an element of glamour to traditional grunge looks and referenced formal-wear that fails to take itself too seriously.

The Xander Zhou Spring/Summer 2015 collection is designed with both aesthetics and comfort in mind and is guaranteed to appeal to fashion forward skate enthusiasts. Stats for Refined Skater Runways Trending: Older & Warm
