SSENSE

Known for its contemporary industrial aesthetic, British label A-COLD-WALL*’s SS18 accessories fuse utilitarian fabrics, functionality, and street chic.

If you’re clocking just a few influences from OFF-WHITE designs, that’s in no small part down to the brand’s founder — London-born, LVMH Prize-nominated Samuel Ross — having been taken under the wing of Virgil Abloh.

ACW’s designs are said by Ross to be an esoteric art project, exploring the disparities of the British class system. The result is brutal cuts in stark neutral colors, with the SS18 accessories range offsetting muted tones with pops of purple, yellow, and red.

Below, we’ve curated our favorite pieces from the range, including cardholders in unorthodox shapes, distressed canvas totes, and some utility holsters that just needed to be wrapped around our shoulders yesterday.
