Menswear - the heart-wrenching pleasure for the fashion-loving female. It's not made for you and, most likely, it won't fit right even if you do bite the bullet and turn dreaming into buying.

But do you know what? It's wondrous when catwalked and so, seeing the menswear collections at the Royal College of Art's MA Show was a heady, lusty experience.

Liam Hodges' regal yet Nineties-esque bulk and layering gave a rebellious two fingers to the ongoing Hedi Slimane-driven trend towards the slimmest tailoring, while Signe Hurtigkarl's knitwear was inventive and had an heirloom quality - it's the type of work you would love forever, should you be luckily enough to own it.

Meanwhile, Hodges wasn't the only designer bucking the trend when it came to volume. There was also a swerve towards a looser trouser, with Asim Khan, Franciska Hjermov and Fiongal Greenlaw all featuring a baggier cut. Could the steer towards the super skinny leg be over? We're not sure, but if there's one place to spot a future trend, it's here.

Take a flick through the collections - full screen is a must.
