Inspired by the work of YBA Henry Bond and the real life fashion sense of women in the media, Christopher Shannon releases his Pre-Fall 15 collection.
Streetwear goes luxe for Christopher Shannon’s second womenswear collection for PF15. A continuation of the men’s line, the plastic bags are back everywhere, as headpieces and motifs on knits, bringing the high street to high fashion. Expect to find the usual sportswear selections, zip-up jackets, track pants and sweaters, each with an unexpected twist.
The collection is embellished with ruffles and sparkling buttons and created from a choice of thick knits and satin. The colour palette is firmly in the moody and dark with black and deep navy taking precedence but highlighted in places by red, cobalt blue and fresh lemon yellow. Footwear is provided by CAT, in the form of thick, white soled Colorado boots.
