Christopher Shannon explores his teenage clubbing memories of Liverpool, with surprising – and surprisingly pleasing – results.
Christopher Shannon went old school 90s fabulous with a club classics-inspired collection that we can’t wait to wear next spring. PVC rainbow plastic shorts, glitter hair and a palette of pink, acid green, yellow and orange were the mainstays, and the retro-inspired collaboration with Liberty saw floral boxers get tucked into shirts and matching shorts.
But the devil was certainly in the detail with this collection. After all, why rely on your outfit to do the talking when your hair can too? Models literally shone in sparkly shades of red, lilac, turquoise and blue hairspray, and each and every guest was gifted with their own DIY hair kit by Fudge on their seat.
On the whole, the outlook for the SS14 Christopher Shannon man is acid sportswear. Sorry, Christopher, we know the look is totally up north but we’re nicking this for London, too.
