Designers seem to have finally figured out how to make men's shorts that feel like your favourite trousers: in other words, they're now coming up with new designs that actually fit and flatter your shape. These tailored, clean-lined silk taffeta shorts by Omar Kashoura are a first class specimen of the trend, and a splendid antidote to all those premium cargo shorts of the past couple of summers. Kashoura, who was raised in Leeds by Turkish parents and educated at Central St Martins in London, is a perfect emblem of modern British menswear, as well as proven master of the well-turned-out summer wardrobe piece. It's the talent of designers such as Kashoura that inspired the fashion authorities to announce that, from this summer, British menswear will get its own "week", rather than just a day tagged onto the ends of the women's ones. He and his contemporaries' recent contributions led to January's announcement by the the British Fashion Council of something called "London Collections: Men." This summer, from June 15-17, British menswear designers, tailors and heritage houses will all be given a new showcase aimed at promoting both the creative and commercial importance of Britain's menswear brands and merging talents.
