Emerging New York-based brand Untitled Collective has released its Fall/Winter 2020 lookbook to showcase its “Demolition” collection, a stately selection of elevated workwear garments. The utilitarian range was inspired by the contrast between demolition and deconstruction, which involves “the act of demolishing and preserving reusable valuables” as described by the brand.

Uniform styles like boiler suits, pea coats and ribbed crewnecks lend a practical business casual sensibility, while dusky greens, khaki hues and chalky shades of grey form a transitional color palette. Relaxed-fitting suits are layered with muted button-ups and worn with sturdy black work boots for a functional look, while a dark washed denim jacket and matching jeans offer classic Canadian tuxedo vibes.

While detailing the inspiration behind “Demolition” further, Untitled Collective explained that they also pulled themes from Gary Marcus’ book Kluge: The Haphazard Construction of the Human Mind. Marcus’ work “deconstructs the human mind and expresses our brains at a clumsily reconstructed patchwork of values, and that evolutionary psychology favors genes that provide ‘immediate advantages’” the brand stated. Taking this same ideology, Untitled Collective informed its stripped-down designs, choosing to highlight only the most “valuable” elements.

Check out the full FW20 lookbook now by browsing through the gallery above or visit Untitled Collective’s website for more details.
