Each season at London Fashion Week, London’s most promising menswear designers showcase their collections as part of the MAN show sponsored by Topman, who also show their upcoming collection, this season was the first time Christopher Shannon showed, alongside repeat performances from Hans Madsen and James Long, and I think I have a new favourite. The St Martin’s graduates collections are hugely sportswear inspired and as a believer in fashion looking towards tomorrow, the innovation and aesthetic is far beyond his pairs.
Having already completed collaborations with New Balance, Nike, Eastpak and Judy Blame, Shannon is set for a huge future. Check out his A/W 08 Graduation show here, and video(by Pierre Debuscherre) from this seasons MAN show here.
