The Christopher Shannon Perfume is inspired by his childhood and teenage years growing up in Liverpool. Scents of sulphur, copper and wood from the factories would mix with the smell of food from the bustling streets and fresh citrus notes from a newly cleaned house. These inspirations mix together with childlike enthusiasm reflecting both Christopher’s upbringing and his contemporary, playful designs.
Christopher Shannon Menswear began in 2008, with a vision of moving British menswear on from its legacy of fine tailoring and a mission to create modern, relevant garments drawing on diverse references. The label is stocked by trend-leading stores around the world, such as Selfridges, H Lorenzo and Tom Greyhound.
Founder Christopher Shannon is a graduate of Central St Martins MA Menswear course, where he was awarded a scholarship under the late, great Professor Louise Wilson. Shannon was the recipient of the inaugural BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund. He has been shortlisted for the Emerging Menswear Award at the British Fashion Awards and LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize, and has been involved in the innovative MAN, NEWGEN and Fashion Forward sponsorship schemes.
