London-based designer Grace Wales Bonner has presented her eponymous label’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection at London Fashion Week: Men’s.

This season, Wales Bonner returned with an even stronger focus on tailoring and combined this traditional British trope with her archetypal Afro-Atlantic approach. Presenting both menswear and womenswear, Wales Bonner delivered tailoring staples such as long-line double-breasted duffle coats lined with a selection of bold colors as well as collaborative tracksuits with adidas Originals paired with multicolored woolen hats.

Elsewhere the runway offered up a solid selection of knitwear in the form of brown, yellow, red and green-hued zip-up funnel necks, tank tops and low-scooped crewneck jumpers. The use of color here popped underneath pieces such as the luxe brown leather flight jacket, waistcoats and double-breasted pea coats.

One of the most anticipated components of Wales Bonner’s FW20 show was the designer’s adidas Originals collaboration. Numerous reworked iterations of archival Three Stripes silhouettes were walked down the runway, with prominent pairs including a Samba sporting embroidered stripes on the side and a fold-down dual-branded tongue — which touches upon the British football terrace subculture — and various premium bowling shoe-esque offerings. Take a look at Wales Bonner’s FW20 London Fashion Week: Men’s presentation above.
