LOOK OF THE WEEK
- Skater Boy Style In Black -
Contrary to popular belief, black does not need to be boring, especially not if you embrace a youthful skater boy style.
Christopher Shannon has cornered the market for witty, fashion depreciating messages in his collections. His spring 2017 collection featured clever play on words of the Sports Direct logo, replacing the slogan with “Lovers Direct”. It worked best on pieces like this simple black sweatshirt, cut slightly oversized and in a classic loopback design. A younger man that frequents the skate park on a regular basis will know the importance of skinny jeans that you can move in. River Island’s denim is skinny but stretchy so not restrictive or tight in any way. And because we like to keep things simple, we chose to style this look with Converse sneakers at Asos.

he is passionate about fashion illustration and opts for s sketchy, freehand style that captures real life,
