Material and Emotion Game
A New Brand of Streetwear Reimagined
The main concept revolved around minimal details and a tinge of architectural feel. With lights and sounds, models walked down with pride.
Ross’ works played around his usual character – teenage streetwear, parkas, hoodies, and boots. Yet there is something about the new collection Samuel Ross showed. Maybe it is the drama in each piece. New elements and textures appeared that gave people something new to look forward to in this rising fashion icon.
Models walked down with clay on their face adding texture and vibe to the overall look. This is exactly what material and emotion are when realized. Ross is a genius when it comes to unique elements and wearable.
Others have lead in their runway look. On the show notes, Ross mentioned that he wanted to incorporate lead into garments because he remembers his father, who is a stained-glass artist, working around with Lead.
From workshop to runway
Samuel Ross also has a background that could inspire others. A-Cold-Wall is a masterpiece of a person from a working-class. At this rate, Ross’ legacy is just beginning. From winning Emerging Menswear Talent at the British Fashion Awards last year and to showcasing in London Fashion Week, he sure made a lot of people proud.
