Sundays are not made for blogging, but it’s still more then 12 hours till Monday. And I cannot wait till Monday to talk about this! So I took my hung-over (kidding but I’m still tired from clubbing) ass to the laptop and tried to at least say something about this designer who I have been watching since AW13:
Shaun Samson is a California-born Birtish-trained menswear designer launching his label his self-named label in 2011. With a strong desire to pursue design, Samson successfully completed his first AA in Fashion Design in LA. Then continued further studies in manufacturing and product development under scholarship at FIDM and pursue Design Education at Central St. Martins, earning A BA and MA degree in fashion menswear. Samson managed to work on four collections for Jeremy Scott through his degree. Samson’s AW11/12 collection was exclusively sponosored by Woolrich and was showcased as part of London Fashion Week in February 2011.
And yea, like I said I have been watching this kid since his AW 2013 collection and his collections get better and better and better and it has been on a high level from the beginning (just to make that very clear!). For his SS15 collection Samson was inspired by camping and is taking boy scouts to the streets. And since I am representing Ghetto Chanel, this is just right up my (ghetto) alley. The shapes and prints are so dope:
