Fashion designer Christopher Shannon recently presented his new collection for Fall/Winter 2010. His inspiration? “The photo journalism of Pieter Hugo (who famously documented Nigerians with hyenas on leashes), the documentary shots of Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen and David Attenborough’s Human Planet. The idea is that wherever you are in the world you’re never too far from sportswear – and why you can see tribesmen wearing tracksuit tops.” The collection is a bit more wearable than past Shannon lineups we’ve seen, while offering plenty of color amongst black and whites, paired with interesting materials, prints and cuts.
