River Island have debut their latest collaboration for autumn winter 2015 with menswear designer Christopher Shannon.
Since debuting in 2008 Shannon has pushed menswear boundaries to create a modern feel by using bold graphics, mixed fabric textures and prints.
Now the winner of GQ and British Fashion Council’s first ever menswear award, Shannon is about to bring his original and bold outlook on men’s fashion to the high street.
Drawing inspiration from 90s apparel with classic crew neck jumpers with bold text graphics, a multi-panelled puffa bomber jacket, created in a navy teddy fur and red check in the centre, which also matches with the long sleeved panelled shirt.
Sports Luxe arrives in a contrast jogger in glossy nylon with a contrasting side panel. T-shirts have been designed in black with a holographic and glitter appliqué panels.
Accessories and shoes have not been forgotten with a navy bum bag in teddy fur with a zip pouch, whereas boots have been made in black pony skin with leather details and a robust sole.
The capsule 11-piece collection will launch in mid-September both online and in selected stores, with a fashion film launching at London Collections in just under two weeks time. Prices range from £30 – £120.
