Editor’s Notes: Polythene* Optics — the sister brand to Samuel Ross' A-COLD-WALL* — just launched its FW18 collection, and while the name may suggest otherwise, Polythene* Optics has nothing to do with eyewear.

In the summer just gone, the small ready-to-wear brand linked up with Places + Faces for a limited-edition capsule of long-sleeve T-shirts. Like the SS18 drop, the FW18 collection also includes a range of long-sleeve tees, adding dope short-sleeved options to the mix too, along with branded socks and scarves.

For the uninitiated, Samuel Ross first entered the fashion arena having interned for Virgil Abloh. The 26-year-old designer soon worked his way to becoming Abloh's assistant before launching increasingly popular fashion brand A-COLD-WALL*, which was nominated for the prestigious LVMH Prize earlier in 2018. Not the first Samuel Ross offshoot to catch our attention, Polythene* Optics joins brutalist homewares label Concrete Objects as a new favorite of ours.

And style isn't the only thing that deviates from the A-COLD-WALL* formula. Polythene* Optics' offerings come with a comparatively affordable price point, with the FW18 line ranging between $30 to $95.

Take a look at our picks from the collection below.
