Following the lookbook for its FW19 collection “UN-NAMED,” Seoul-based imprint BLACKMERLE, headed by designer Terry Shin, has returned with another set of maximalist garments for its forthcoming Fall/Winter 2020 collection, titled “A.C. 006.”
Continuing to exude dystopian hues, the latest range sees Shin moving into new territories, taking a step back from the techwear-heavy collections of the past. As Shin continues to embark on clothing that prioritizes transformability, customizability, interchangeability, and a variety of irregular textures, the FW20 range sees the brand moving into newfound territories: knitted textiles come front and center, with the brand’s signature usage of nylon materials remaining intact. As is normative for the brand, Shin further dives into maximalism — everything looks as if it was designed for a Sci-Fi world where each garment operates in unison with the rest.
A few notable pieces include the knit bags that appear throughout the lookbook, with a variety of houndstooth-esque outerwear featuring an array of interchangeable elements, as well as a vibrant blue anorak featuring gray paneling throughout. The outerwear remains further paired with a bevy of new trousers, this time moving away from the brand’s characteristic silver-metal zips and pockets, opting for sleeker, highly-paneled designs in muted tones.
