The latest menswear collection from designer Christopher Shannon puts emphasis on the power of eclectic style. The bold collection is a combination of classic silhouettes that are both structured and playful. The designer’s material choices are vibrant, bright and playful, adding a quirky and distinctive factor to his clothing.

Models wear soft and sporty separates including accent sweaters, wind breaker-inspired dress shirts as well as varsity jackets. Christopher Shannon combines classic silhouettes with his ingenious use of print. Ensembles are adorned with floral, stripe and madras motifs as well as tassels and photo appliques. The models’ eccentric looks are fashion forward must haves that combine comfort and functionality with desirable aesthetics.

Their sporty looks, accessorized with sneakers and unusual head pieces constructed from plastic combs, make for an awesome theme for this season. The plastic comb clusters resemble crowns and add humor and a whimsical aspect to the runway collection.
