Contemporary label A-COLD-WALL*, led by Samuel Ross, embraces experimental design through an avant-garde collection for Fall/Winter 2018. The pieces form an interesting take on menswear that mixes understandings of ready-to-wear and art. For the development of the silhouettes, the British designer focused on materials that offer both a strong aesthetic embellishment, as well as some form of functionality.
The daringly avant-garde collection for Fall/Winter 2018 features "boiled hand-threaded wools, thermo-reactive nylons" and other raw materials. The garments themselves entertain a deconstructed aesthetic that has definitely seen a surge in popularity in 2018 due to its confrontational approach to trendy or generic fashion. Moreover, A-COLD-WALL*'s avant-garde collection is not only stylish but it can also be considered customizable in virtue of its boundary-challenging approach to the industry.
