Samuel Ross, the creative mind behind London-based brand A-COLD-WALL*, first entered the fashion world when he left his job at a design studio in order to work as an intern for Virgil Abloh. He soon became Abloh’s assistant and, while Abloh went on to take the reigns at Louis Vuitton, 26-year-old Ross is not short of his own successes, with a recent nomination for 2018’s coveted LVMH Prize.
Under Ross’ creative direction, A-COLD-WALL* is fast becoming synonymous with elevated and futuristic workwear, with price-points ranging from $60 to a few thousand bucks. The brand’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection marks a shift from the more subtle designs of previous seasons, with many must-cop items to eyeball online. Stocking some of the best items from the collection is Italian luxury retailer Luisaviaroma, and incidentally, they’re also throwing in free express shipping and returns.
We’ve selected some of our favorite pieces from A-COLD-WALL*’s FW18 collection, all available for pre-order at Luisaviaroma right now. Our favorites include the head-turning metallic silver hood and an all-black PVC raincoat, as well as comparatively low-key pieces like the logo-print tee and a wool beanie. Whether you were rocking utility-wear before the trend hit, or you’re only just discovering A-COLD-WALL*, our selection has something for everyone.
