Fun and rebellious are the sort of words one would use to describe Christopher Shannon’s work as a designer. While loud colors and prints lend a hand in the compelling cut & sew pieces that don the runways each season, the Liverpool-based menswear designer isn’t afraid to strip it all away in stark replacement of monochromatic colors. Such juxtaposing works find commonality in that they all riff on Britain's diverse subculture. Think exaggerated patterns synonymous to ‘90s rave, the clean-cut silhouette and melancholy fabric blocks that make up the modern mod, all lined with an underlying punk aesthetics. Noteworthy projects include his 2014 fall collection which re-imagined sportswear designs with artfulness, while also contributed to Eastpak’s Artist Studio collection with a unique one-off design that was auctioned online to raise money for Designers Against AIDS (DAA).
