Unisex looks found in the FW20 range displayed a more distilled display of Williams’ penchant for the technical design. With glimmering accents arranged in dynamic forms offered an element of luxury that ALYX has not yet touched upon. The bright additions served as a gateway to the womenswear offerings that ultimately proved to cement the label’s relationship with gender-neutral garments.
