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.

You can peep BLACKMERLE’s “A.C. 006” collection above. Keep your eyes peeled to brand stockists like H. Lorenzo as the collection drops in the coming months.
