With London Collections: Men just around the corner, we asked ten designers six burning questions (in our minds at least), and asked for a cheeky snap from their studio too. To our surprise-and great pleasure-they agreed.
Oversized shirts, stretched tees and enlarged knits, Shaun Samson is a man obsessed with proportion. This season he wants to bring the party to the fashion parade.
Why do you do what you do?
I've spent too much money on school loans to learn to do anything else.
What’s your main inspiration for Spring Summer 14?
The ultimate summer party.
Which piece from SS13/AW13 have you found yourself wearing the most?
I've worn a pair of black/khaki needle felted shorts quite a bit, considering I don't normally wear anything I make.
What track is the most overplayed in your studio right now?
Ciara – ‘Body Party’ - it actually can't be played enough in the studio!
Which other designers work are you most interested to see at LC:M and why?
Christopher Shannon and Craig Green, they both always have something cool and interesting to say with their collections
Who would you most like to see wearing your clothes?
I want Ciara to do her Body Party dance wearing Shaun Samson.
Shaun presents on Sunday 16th June at 10:00.
