A-Cold-Wall* Spring/Summer 2021 Menswear Collection
This translated into pieces in which you could discern the fossilized silhouette of 20th-century suiting, proto-Prada-ish, but expressed in technically-spliced knit and jersey. Around these were layered stratae of garments, including ergonomic bobbly gilet/harnesses, collarless shirting, and ruched bombers. Referring to his shapes Ross cited Bauhaus, Dada, and Albers, adding that the graphics spoke to Niemeyer—classic modernist grist to the fashion designer mill—and emphasized asymmetry and those ergonomic curves as key parts of the visual language he is building. Accenting that were some lilting and again layered gradations of tone and patina in garment and/or tie-dyed denim and jersey pieces.
