Founded in 2015, A-COLD-WALL* has grown quickly to become one of the UK’s brightest-shining style stars. Virgil Abloh protégé and founder Samuel Ross has built the label on a unique sense of technical and functional expertise guided by a luxury mindset — a heady cocktail that appears to get stronger every season.
We’re well into Spring/Summer 2021, but a new crop of A-COLD-WALL* gear just hit SSENSE and it’s reasserted Samuel Ross as one of the most exciting designers of the moment. From welded lounge pants, complete with technical taped seams to sharp tailoring with an industrial edge, the newly dropped items embody the A-COLD-WALL* approach.
Regardless of season, regardless of style, every wardrobe needs an essential hoodie and this iteration from A-COLD-WALL* in eye-catching Puffin Orange is one of the season’s best.
You don’t often see short-sleeved overshirts, and by the looks of this one, that’s a real shame.
Industrial tailoring? Sounds like it shouldn’t be a thing but Samuel Ross puts a strong argument forward for it.
How much tech goes into your sweatpants? Not as much as this pair with welded seams, we bet.
Functional Moc silhouettes are all the rage right now. A-COLD-WALL* has been making sleek mocs for a while, though, and that’s probably how it’s perfected the style.
It’s not easy to design a double-breasted blazer that would style as easily with sweatpants as it would tailored trousers.
Summer won’t last forever. For the latter part of summer, you’d do well to cop a transitional jacket like this Ruche Bomber.
One of the real standout aspects of ACW SS21 was the stained denim. This classic trucker jacket gets an understated update.
Designed in 2021. Still worn in 2051.
