Feeling fancy? How about a ruffled shoulder seam? Or a trio of 70s-style frills for your button-down? Christopher Shannon is keeping it classy this fall. Not that he's ever anything less than razor-sharp—but this season feels especially scrubbed-up. The British designer's bomber-jacket-wearing, trackpant-sporting guy experiments with ruffles, paisley, and shiny faux leather. Does someone have a date...?
The other headliners this fall are jacquard knits. Christopher weaves sweatshirts with text and images from his archives for a super cool, grainy black-and-white-TV effect. Kidda!, Christopher's jersey spin-off line also pulls its main motif from past collections, nailing it for a second season with casual tees and sweats in soft grey paisley.
