Drifting apart from the trends that seek simplicity and an overall sense of cleanness, Christopher Shannon found an unexpected dose of inspiration while watching “Hoarders”. It’s no wonder his fall / winter 2013 line-up ended up looking like an endless compilation of puzzle pieces, not necessarily related but working surprisingly well once piled together. That's why the key numbers of the London fashion week (LFW) collection were highly represented by an unusual blend of multiple pieces, evoking dirtiness as main reference for the conceptual designs.
The jeans appeared like a random mix of fabrics, the knits were assembled out of various knit parts while everything else was stitched accordingly. Nothing seemed out of place in all oddity, as a sense of order dominated the apparent chaos taking over the runway. Alongside the shirts, jeans and sweaters, leather came along as a new and main component of Shannon’s intriguing collection, adding substance to the otherwise controlled “clutter”.
