Christopher Shannon Fall/Winter 2014 Menswear Collection

The runway for Christopher Shannon‘s Fall/Winter show during London’s menswear week was made to look as if it had endured steady rainfall. Similarly, the models appeared as if they had been caught in the downpour, evoking the sad tableau of a footballer walking home in the rain, hair dripping wet, and stopping to pick up a pint of milk at the corner store. The nylon tracksuits and psychedelic floral prints — inspired by chintzy wallpaper seen through shabby window frame in a rundown municipal office — hearken back to the early Thatcher years. Those depressed times are enlivened by bright pops of color and a sense of whimsy, seen in the fake cigarette brands advertised on the designer’s crewneck sweaters. Check out the looks below.
