London Fashion Week: Christopher Shannon autumn/winter 2010/11 collection

Style : There was a clear message that Shannon's latest offering was for Autumn/Winter as the collection oozed the image of pistes and Alpine sports in the snow.

Puffa coats and jump suits were the main garments in the collection, with shades of blue and stark white being the main garment pallet. Wool gloves, large pockets and neon pink, yellow cotton ankle warmers below rolled up trousers were the small yet powerful details that featured in this icy offering.

Textures such as soft wools and cashmere bounced well off the fleece back-packs – many emblazoned with his CS monogram, will no doubt be another of the in-the-know items that have been shining though this season. It seems subtly is the new conspicuous luxury.

Length and volume spoke out with Shannon as shirts with long tails and loud paisley print, tight cotton manty-hoes and long sleeved t-shirts captured the attention of the sleepiest of attendees.

Though how the oversized snowflakes painted onto the faces of the models will catch on is anybody's guess, but if this was a reference to temporary tattoos, then Shannon is bang on trend.
