Launching for Autumn Winter ’16 is North Quarter by Christopher Shannon.
Delivering Christopher Shannon’s modernist vision of technical sportswear to a new premium customer, North Quarter joins the dots between catwalk creativity and aspirational quality-led menswear.
“Inspired by my catwalk collection, North Quarter takes influences, design markers and key silhouettes from the Christopher Shannon mainline and repackages them for a detail-obsessed male customer brought up on a diet of premium technical sportswear brands. North Quarter gives me the opportunity to speak directly with the brand-led British males who have inspired me creatively since the outset of my career.”
North Quarter creative director, Christopher Shannon.
North Quarter’s launch collection for Autumn Winter ’16 presents 50 distinctively branded styles led by jackets, knits, sweats, over-shirts, shirts and jog pants. A focus on tech-led fabrics includes bonded cottons, neoprene and soft-shell constructions.
Available at wholesale, North Quarter by Christopher Shannon will target a selection of premium independents and department stores. All sales will be handled by distribution agency Zone Two from its East London showrooms. Prices have yet to be confirmed.
Christopher Shannon is a graduate of the Central St Martins MA Menswear course. He has been shortlisted for the Emerging Menswear Award at the British Fashion Awards and the LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize, and been involved in the innovative MAN, NEWGEN and Fashion Forward sponsorship schemes.
