LC:M AW15 – Christopher Shannon

Christopher Shannon is evidently still riding on the tsunami wave of the success that hit him early last year if AW15’s clear, rather candid, agenda is anything to go by. In one of the most thoroughly post-modern collections that we might be treated to in London, or anywhere else for that matter, this season Shannon waved the flag for the London menswear originals with a semi-political commentary and some pretty nifty garments too.

Speaking for the turgid consumerism and the broader social implications that have befallen our modern world, the designer took the street codes he revels in and maximized their grit factor for bold tracksuits panelled and split from top to bottom.

An angst-ridden celebration of sticking it to “the man”, Shannon offered a whole lot more than just ironic bin-bag quips with intricate deconstructed pieces curated to flatter the form without getting too lost in an “ugly” aesthetic. While this writer has always been slightly averse to slogans, names or any other form of literacy being strewn across clothing, Shannon does it with such unique confidence that his name itself is fast becoming a household one within menswear.

This is what makes Shannon, whose recent growth has been immense, so great for London. In addition to his menswear domination, with a capsule line now available for his female fan base ticked off the list, that wave we mentioned shows no signs of subsiding.
