Go to the beach (each), because for SS14 Shaun Samson is pure iridescent brilliance.
There was more than a hint of the skater trend present in the beach-inspired, Snoop Dogg-soundtracked line. Clothes were paired with battered Vans and Samson-emblazoned boxers, and bare chests were mandatory unless you were one of the models sporting a wetsuit. As one of the hottest pieces of property on the menswear circuit right now Samson didn’t disappoint, and highlights of the show included his signature oversized t-shirts and several shimmering sequinned shirts (cue the snap snap of countless iPhone magpies).
Samson has speedily made a name for himself for fusing multiple materials together in one garment, and today was a continuation of this trademark. We think Shaun Samson just pitched the ideal collection. School’s out.
