The first of Lou Stoppard's reports from the London menswear S/S 15 shows are in! SHOWstudio's editor has penned frank and fair reviews on the runway offerings of MAN, Astrid Andersen, Topman Design, Matthew Miller, Lou Dalton and more! Her reports give insight into the inspirations of the designers, while assessing the impact of their finished collections and pinpointing their strengths (and weaknesses).
'For S/S 15 the focus was teenagers, as Shannon had been perusing Adrienne Salinger's brilliant nineties book of teens in their bedrooms. It's no secret that a teenager's room is their world, full of posters and relics that capture and display their fragile sense of self and deep felt emotions. The beauty and earnestness of that teen spirit was captured by Shannon perfectly in the collection,' writes Stoppard in her verdict on the Christopher Shannon show.
