British label Heresy has followed up its folklore-inspired Spring/Summer 2020 collection its new “Chaos and the Ballad of the Black Dog” range. The Fall/Winter 2020 collection looks at themes that have ran throughout the brand’s previous work, with a particular focus on Chaos Magick, the Occult and Wicca.

Described as “Britain’s only native religion,” Wicca is a form of modern Paganism that was introduced in the 1950s. The religion ties in to Heresy’s ongoing look at folklore and the occult, and has a particular focus on nature with a range of symbols and motifs.

A number of these motifs feature in Heresy’s FW20 collection, as well as portraits of Gerald Gardner who introduced Wicca to the wider public in 1954. Elsewhere, T-shirts feature cult-inspired graphics, denim items come with an all-over “Ritual” pattern and items bear Heresy’s “Folklore Research” slogan.

Take a look through the “Chaos and the Ballad of the Black Dog” lookbook in the gallery above. All of the pieces are available now from the Heresy web store.
