LDN ASSEMBLY | END. SS19
Curating a selection of the zeitgeist-defining design talent emanating from the British capital, END. shines a spotlight on London's rising stars including Liam Hodges, Craig Green and A-COLD-WALL*.
A technicoloured masterpiece from London-based brand Craig Green, the worker jacket is designed to resemble TV static from a warped reality. Using an amalgam of fabrics and techniques seen throughout his SS19 runway, the designer achieves a unique look that could trick you into thinking the jacket is vibrating.
Titled ‘HUMAN. FORM. STRUCTURE.’, A-COLD-WALL*’s SS19 collection features an array of architecturally-inspired pieces. The piping overshirt comes complete with an asymmetrical hem and exposed zip, showcasing Samuel Ross’ unparalleled ability to think outside the box and deliver practical, yet sensational, streetwear.
Graphic-led and cut for impression, the short down jacket from Samuel Ross’ Polythene Optics erupts through the streets with a striking red colourway. Packed with insulation, this loud outer layer coins the brand’s credentials boldly to the front and reverse, joined alongside a shielding stand collar. Surfaced with red vinyl on the lower half, the warming coat comes complete with a total of four pockets for all your trusty items.
The perfect way to add a flourish of brand appeal to your ensemble, A-COLD-WALL* share their all over print logo pants in pale grey. Inspired by the brutalist buildings and the concrete estates of his youth, Samuel Ross showcases his interpretation of these environments with his distinctive system of visual codes.
London’s menswear designer of the moment, Martine Rose takes her hand to the sneaker circuit’s original ‘Dad’ shoe through her unorthodox collaboration with sporting ace Nike this season. Rendering the brand’s perennial Air Monarch IV silhouette, self-proclaimed nonconformist Rose uplifts and transforms the Americana style into an 'extraordinary shape'; opting for smooth leather uppers in a bulbous formula.
Reinventing something as simple as the tee, A-COLD-WALL* add asymmetric panels into the mix of their boundary-breaking streetwear. Padded in rust, this unique t-shirt features straight-cut architectural influences, typically seen from the brand’s designer Samuel Ross.
Preparing for transitional weather, Bulgarian fashion designer, Kiko Kostadinov and Japanese footwear giant, ASICS join forces once again to produce a technical and athletic-influenced collection. Combining Kostadinov's creative outlook and ASICS' high-performance design, the powerful duo present this fluorescent jacket - guaranteeing you'll always be seen - even in the dark.
Continuing their lauded collaboration, ASICS and Kiko Kostadinov present the “Gel Sokat Infinity”. Inspired by the iconic ASICS “Tug of War” sneaker, this pair combine a retro running aesthetic with a contemporary twist.
Drawing inspiration from Las Vegas, Liam Hodges presents his latest collection titled "Slick Trash" with this eye-catching hoody. Garment dyed to achieve its acid wash look, the hooded silhouette is decorated with a badge resembling an American highway sign that reads 'Lost' and 'Found'. Equipped with a capacious drawstring hood, this dystopian-inspired sweat is complete with a handy pocket to the front.
Stone Island's in-house diffusion line Stone Island Shadow Project return with this short-sleeved staple, dressed here in white. Ideal for casual wear, the premium design sees the chest stamped with dark typography, including a ‘7019’ print which directly references the label’s hierarchy and season run, while a patch pocket and trio of graphics punctuate the front and reverse.
