There’s nothing worse than working in an office when the sun attends the sky, where the room fills with invisible tar that sticks and clings to uncomfortable clothes and expressions. Thankfully the fashion industry doesn’t stick like treacle to conventionally predictable shirt and tie styles that unconsciously crave this parched attention and persona. Christopher Shannon is a designer I’ve raved about on many an occasion, and there’s never better a seasonal time to indulge in the urban luxury when the humid office environment calls for comfortable and high-heated style. The trousers ripple and contort like melted silk, exuding sportswear charm with the stylish silver coating that make them appropriate for business intentions. Rucksacks corset the body like colourful shielding, and holdalls have a gritty quilt texture to them that again fuses together the city worker with the sport enthusiast. So with this in mind, I’ve sprinted into work in melting silver trousers with braces from www.brighterman.com that can be overlapped to create this rucksack corset idea. Hope everyone else is finding their own inventive little ways of funking up the stereotypical scenes out there.
