UPDATE: Backstage images from the presentation have now been included to the gallery.


Standing as one of the most anticipated shows of London Fashion Week Men’sA-COLD-WALL*‘s Fall/Winter 2019 “BIRTH.ORGAN.SYNTH.” runway presentation served to highlight elements of art and politics with fashion.

The showing saw an East London venue transformed into a stark runway framed by two tanks of water. Two groups of performance artists helped each other maneuver through the liquid-filled enclosures, referencing the recent interception of migrants crossing the English Channel to seek asylum. Progressing through the show a rottweiler appeared to bark at the artists adding to the structured chaos imposed by the evocative soundtrack that scored a cast of pacing models.

Proving a greater focus on tailoring, designer Samuel Ross put together an array of thoughtfully designed FW19 pieces that integrated the familiar design sensibility of A-COLD-WALL*. Outerwear and bottoms constructed of technical fabrics sported an array of interestingly utilized utility pockets, distinct hardware, raw hem detailing and asymmetric panels.

Riddled throughout the collection were also displays of Ross’ penchant for sculptural art forms, reiterating the study of conceptual imagery explored with the presentation. Additionally, as promised, Ross also showed off a line up of carrying options, new takes on the SHARD Low sneaker and upcoming colorways of his Nike Zoom Vomero +5 collaboration.

Check out A-COLD-WALL*’s FW19 runway presentation above and stay tuned for all our coverage of London Fashion Week Men’s.
