After an initial look at the Western-inspired El Charro Negro collection for SS20 accompanied by an art exhibition last June, design duo Art Comes First drops a lookbook for the upcoming release. Drawing from the team’s admiration for Mexican culture and actor Cantinflas as one of the designer’s childhood heroes for his great sense of style, the collection pays tribute to the Ranchero lifestyle in the region. Utilizing fabrication from Oaxaca, leather from Leon and Taxco for silver, the designs continue and meld references from ACF’s “Billism” collection which was influenced by the African Cowboy sub-culture from Congo, and resulted in the “El Charro Negro” theme. The lineup includes a range of denim shirts and suede vests with ornate embroidery, along with fringed capes and leather riding pants. Accessories also come to the fore as bolo ties, belts with ornate buckles and black cowboy hats and boots round out the looks.

Shot by Mexican photographer Julian Burgueno with local models in Mexico City, peep the lookbook above and look for the release hitting ACF’s website and stores later this week.
