After being shortlisted for the LVMH Prize in 2017, South Korean label BLINDNESS — headed by designers Jisun Park and Kyu-yong Shin — has continued to sculpt out a head-turning repertoire of innovative menswear. Late last year, the brand continued to showcase its experimental take on the sartorial by being shortlisted as finalists for the coveted Woolmark Prize, and have now returned with a lush new arrangement of loosely-tailored goods for the FW20 season.

Spotlighted in a high-contrast lookbook, BLINDNESS’s latest thematic underlay incorporates ideas of pollution and environmental consciousness, expressing these motifs in the form of marine-styled fishnets that are spotlighted throughout the lookbook. The looks remain anchored by various leather boots and Chelseas, whereby tight trousers are balanced by oversized jackets, further accented by pops of color. Notable pieces include a large black overcoat with louche tailoring, whereby white stripes have been knit into the woolen textile, various lapel blazers featuring similar detailing, and cable-knit sweats with pronouncing distressing. Throughout the lookbook, hints of military and navy dress take hold, reemphasizing the collection’s ties to protecting the seas.

Take a detailed look at BLINDNESS FW20 above. For those interested in scoring a piece, the range is likely to hit BLINDNESS’ webstore in the coming weeks.

For more fashion news, the 2020 LVMH Prize has been canceled.
