Mains Makes a Splash at London Fashion Week

After a four-year hiatus, Skepta’s Mains label made an electrifying runway comeback at London Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2024. Following a Dover Street Market collaboration launch, the Mains runway shone with diverse offerings—from athleisure fits to sharp tailoring, enhanced by collaborations with renowned brands such as Beats, New Era, and Timberland.

The Banking Hall in London was dramatically transformed into a tennis court for a unique MAINS experience. A turf runway, Wimbledon-themed scoreboard, and central tennis net set the stage for the showcase.

Drawing inspiration from Skepta’s London roots, the collection revamped Mains classics, ensuring each piece’s practicality. Highlights included the raw silk Mains Drill Suit and an embroidered ‘M’ on boucle bombers—a Skepta design. The line also unveiled leather accessories, including a standout Backpack and Holdall.

Stars like Naomi Campbell and Stormzy were treated to a show featuring sporty Mains-branded tennis gear, shimmering tracksuits, and statement pieces like mesh singlets. Skepta added a personal touch, with his brother JME on the runway and a finale featuring his daughter, River.

Paying tribute to his close ones, Skepta showcased denim jackets with his illustrations of global cities. Friends Headie One and K-Trap, who looked tailor-made for luxe tracksuits, cheered from the audience.

Behind the scenes, designers Mikey Pearce and Johnson Orchid blended luxury and sport for “the next evolution of MAINS.” Skepta confidently noted, “MAINS is here to stay,” promising more in the next season.
