Taking inspiration from a grandparent’s nearly century-old cabin in California’s Sierra Mountains, John Elliott’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection reflects the raw beauty of nature and “golden heartstrings of nostalgia.” From printed shirts and trousers to fuzzy jackets and vests, the range is fit for the power and entropy of the wilderness.

John Elliott introduces innovative and hi-tech leather this season, along with advancements in fabric treatments and applications. Bringing this ruggedness to a sophisticated California style, the collection features a weatherproof lambskin track pant and streamlined moto jacket. T-shirts and hoodies are dyed with indigo shibori, while a paisley motif is illustrated on cotton terry shorts, sweatpants and sweatshirts. Other featured prints include a rainbow neon which evokes the iridescence of steelhead trout, a vintage-tinged butterfly motif and a jacquard theme — influenced by a blanket found in the cabin.

Elsewhere, denim is updated to reflect the “striations and structure of American western geography.” The washes and methods used across trousers and jackets are intended to resemble sulfur deposits from volcanic eruptions, dried lake beds and more. “We started by looking at this way of life that is so different to how we live now,” Elliott says. “But then, we built it into a system that works for today. This kind of modular, head-to-toe complete wardrobe, spurred by the past and this remote place.”

Check out the Fall/Winter 2020 lookbook above. The collection will drop on John Elliott’s website later this year.
