Last year, Alchemist released its Fall/Winter 2019 collection that drew from old school America interpretations and inspirations from Elvis Presley. The Miami-based label returns with another music and art-indebted collection for Fall/Winter 2020. “Chaos” explores the formation of punk rock and what it means to “express its values as informed by one’s environment.” Creative Director Roma Cohen collaborated with Japanese artist Kosuke Kawamura to create looks that seeks to understand punk’s roots through a global lens.

Alchemist utilizes traditional Japanese textiles throughout its collection, highlighting koi fish, dragon and tiger-printed fabrics. A blue and black plaid coat in a kimono-like style is adorned with intricately decorated fabric, contrasting a rebellious punk aesthetic with a global one. Knits and cotton from Italian mills are printed with skull, rib cage and bone graphics, further emphasizing the collection’s exploration of punk.

Elsewhere, a coat sports a leopard-print lining, fringe adorns a plaid sweatsuit and a zip-up hoodie reads “WASTED YOUTH.” Freedom, rebellion and a do-it-yourself approach informs the notes of the collection, imbuing relaxed and worn silhouettes with a sense of individualism.

Check out the Fall/Winter 2020 lookbook above. The “Chaos” collection is expected to drop later this year on Alchemist’s website.

For more Fall/Winter 2020 collections, NAME.’s range of dynamic, worldly garments draws inspiration from George Orwell’s 1984 and Normal Rockwell’s iconic paintings.
