London Fashion Week Men’s Autumn/Winter 2018 kicked off on the 6th of January, 2018. It’s the 11th season of the biannual celebration of British menswear, and this time round the schedule is more jam-packed than ever before. The show which ended on Monday 9th January, saw more tailoring, trousers and top hats.
In addition to the breadth of international names on the billing, there were also a host of home grown talent showing their wares, from the avant-garde brilliance of Charles Jeffrey Lover Boy to the low key elegance of Oliver Spencer.
A-COLD-WALL* exists within a conceptual space bordered by atypical contemporary design, citified cultural influence and audio/visual implementation. A sartorial response to London street culture and the zeitgeist of Britain’s working class, Samuel Ross launched A-Cold-Wall* in the fall of 2015 to reflect hegemonic disparities and youth expression in contemporary fashion.
A theme of stark urbanity is woven into the DNA of A-COLD-WALL* and recent creative impulses have yielded an array of collections symbolic of Ross’ commentary on his surroundings: the parallels between meticulous school day processes and the mundanity of the nine to five; disunity in Britain compounded by recent political upheavals; and the disenfranchised working class.
Samuel Ross’ distinctly multidisciplinary vision is present in handcrafted graphic garments and silhouettes untethered by the need for symmetry. Each A-COLD-WALL* release blurs the line between materials and fabrics – fashion and the arts – and continues its conceptual trajectory.
