FASHION: LCM: CHRISTOPHER SHANNON (WHO’S JACK ONLINE 17.06.12)
An MA graduate of Central Saint Martins, Shannon is still fairly new on the fashion scene, but has quickly rocketed to international recognition with his innovative, ever-surprising “refined scallyism” streetwear designs.
Shannon fans weren’t disappointed by his new collection, which promises a vibrant, upbeat approach to S/S13.
The designer cited tribal tourism and “stoned camping holidays” as key looks behind the line, as evident in such details as the exotic, fringed panelling setting off neutral-toned shorts and shirts. There was also an abundance of tourist-esque backpacks on display, in addition to satchels from his recent collaboration with The Cambridge Satchel Company.
“I love the summer collection to always feel upbeat and a bit holiday”, says Shannon. “There were a few things I wanted to go back to and rework in better fabrics with a neater cut. There’s quite a lot of embellishment going on, that’s quite giddy for me. SS13 has touches of Peter Blake and British folk with quite boysy sports pieces.”
