All eyes are on Paris as Fashion Week takes over the French capital. Head to our Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019 hub to find all the latest news from the industry’s best houses, brands, and designers.

Another designer showcasing his upcoming collection at Paris Fashion Week is London-based Yang Li, who has given us a look at his FW19 menswear diffusion line SAMIZDAT, taken from the Soviet-era Russian term for self-published literature forbidden by the communist government.

SAMIZDAT by Yang Li's FW19 menswear draws on gothic and even black/death metal influences, featuring a dark color palette with pops of burgundy. Among the items are a trench coat with gothic-style printed detailing, graphic T-shirts and hoodies, a bomber jacket referencing industrial metal band Godflesh, and a hooded parka. Patent leather has been used heavily throughout the range, on pants, gloves, and elsewhere.

Scroll through the gallery above and the Instagram post below to get a feel for SAMIZDAT by Yang Li FW19.
