Photographer Brian Cannon is exhibiting some of his most famous works at the Manchester shop after shooting the fashion label's latest collection

The collection incorporates woven badges in the style of sew-on patches created in the 60s by clubs like Wigan Casino and Manchester's Twisted Wheel, along with geometric prints inspired by those worn by black soul and Motown artists at the time.
