Christopher Shannon’s sports+street wear inspired Fall 2015 collection was a humorous and at time sarcastic take on the growing culture of consumerism against the current unstable state of the global economy. Plastic bags is the main protagonist of this performance wear collection, communicating the message of modern day’s impossible to satisfy hunger for consumption.
With a strong reference to pop culture, some of the pieces screamed slogans such as “Thanks for Nothing”, “Broke” or “Save Me”. In a colour story of grey, blue, black and even red, Appliqués and graphics merged with oversized and deconstructed pieces such as sweatpants, sweatshirts, sweaters, and pilot jackets. Plastic bags were styled as headpieces which was a literal interpretation of the main motif of the collection.
