“I was desperate for color this season,” said Christopher Shannon, whose show was inspired by the English arts and crafts in the Seventies and student backpackers in Asia. “I found all these great photos by James Pearson-Howes of summer festivals and, you know, when boys get wrecked at a festival, they’ll wear anything,” he said. That translated into blanket fabrics used as sleeves on white shirts and in side panels on shorts; ripped and frayed edges for the seams of denim jackets and for patchwork panels on shorts; and black and white Yin Yang embroidery on shorts. Shannon applied 3D flowers to the models’ faces for a Summer of Love effect.
