Perfect material for a Sunday night post ............ Christopher Shannon's SS17 vibe is "party's over, reality check, back-to-work Monday morning, inspired by a disaffection with fashion's current reliance on self referencing and a desire to get back to focusing on the design and fabrication of garments"............ denim in three washes of indigo blue, seamed together in contrast on one garment or separate panels fastened with rivet buttons. Entitled "Provincial Heartbreak" he subverted the Sports Direct branding turning it into "Lovers Direct" or "Haters Direct" in logos emblazoned across hemlines and the classic shopping tote. Judy Blame decorated lapels and necks with hessian pins, belt clips and necklaces whilst footwear was covered by a collaboration with Hi-Tec. Here are details from backstage and the invitation artwork which I always love and keep for an ongoing series.
