Mixed Materials: A Cold Wall Spring/Summer 2018 LFWM

Runway, Men, Collections

In the world of menswear, far too often, comfort staples of cottons and knits are favored over the more out-of-the-box material options of the womenswear world. But for A Cold Wall’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, the beauty was in the chaos. Each look was met with  a melange of fabrics, ranging from soft cotton hoodies to pockets of clear plastic. Cuts were just as eclectic, ranging from navel-baring hoodies to cropped trousers to cross-body drawstring bags to figure-enveloping dress shirts. But this eclectic approach to everyday dressing is no surprise considering designer Samuel Ross is a disciple of Virgil Abloh, notorious for his cross-discipline approach to culture (Abloh boasts an industrial furniture line, a illustrious menswear reign, and a long-standing stint as a DJ). While offerings may seem eclectic, broken down the collection is surprisingly palatable.  Each of Ross’s collection is based around the conceit of creating workwear essentials with Savile Row construction. Obviously with a sprinkle of Ross’s DIY-aesthetic, but admirable none-the-less.
