London-based designer Liam Hodges has returned with his Fall/Winter 2020 collection titled “Brave Old World, New Ideas,” celebrating the clash of the old and the new by repurposing old pieces, logos and techniques.

Throughout the collection, Hodges takes aim at the fashion industry itself, recycling old labels, turning T-shirts inside-out and constructing trousers from panels of different fabrications as part of the “investigations into the redistribution of power and creation in a world turned upside down by a thirst for production rather than conception.”

The collection also features a number of items that were handmade in his design studio. This includes a chimeric coat constructed from 106 “D” grade flannel shirts that had been shredded and woven together, jackets made from leather and crocheted recycled yarn and trackpants produced from factory offcuts. The collection’s graphics reference a wide range of influences, including Shakespearean plays, the work of Aldous Huxley, and vintage crochet imagery and hobbyist patterns.

Additionally, the FW20 collection also sees Hodges work with Barcelona-based label Nukak to create a series of bags to accompany the apparel. This collaboration continues the theme by repurposing “the materials that were once cogs in the machine of desolation,” including tote bags made out of tyres and backpacks referencing advertising campaigns.

Take a look through Liam Hodges’ FW20 collection in the gallery above. In other fashion news, Martine Rose and Farah have unveiled their collaboration.
