LFWM: Christopher Shannon AW17

For his AW17 show Christopher Shannon takes us round the world with a collection dedicated to British sportwear and subculture.

From jean jackets, painter's overalls with popper side, padded jackets paired ith a colour-blocking palette and inspired by manual labour-wear, the collection was everything we could have dreamed of.  Just like his previous collection, where he did his own spin on Sport's Direct logo, Shannon selected CK, Timberland and Hugo Boss as his latest edits. Swapping CK for CS - Constant Stress, sweaters featuring LOSS, instead of BOSS and Tumbleweed for Timberland. It's evident that these edits are fast becoming his signature.

Models sported masks made from shredded football flags created in collaboration with Rottingdean Bazaar founders, Luke Brooks and James Buck which took inspiration from fans paiting their faces at football matches.

Shannon is just going from stength to strength and we already cannot wait for the next collection.
