Christopher Shannon is on a high. Who else can finish a show on Dane Bowers and Victoria Beckham's 'Out of Your Mind'? The references are from This is England, as they always are in one way or another. The rawness of the quintessential British working class is something Shannon references in a comic, light-hearted way like no other designer. His inspirations are always from the street, but from a historic street and culture that he still is able to bring to the forefront with integrity. In his own words, "This IS England babe, what are we gonna do?!" Christopher takes us on his journey from last season, which culminated in a playing around with looseness and form. "Just listening to The New Age Steppers was a huge reference - saying goodbye to the 70s and hello to the 80s". From layered tracksuits to 'Embarrro Menthols'- we ask Christopher Shannon about his faves.
"I like the blonde boy in the backless top and trousers. I thought that was a bit more raw sex and I really liked it when I saw it at the end. Once you see everything together, you can play with the rest of it a bit more."
