Luke Meier‘s OAMC returns for Fall/Winter 2021, delivering a collection that’s inspired by the words and work of the American painter and graphic artist Robert Rauschenberg.

Starting with Rauschenberg’s philosophy of “You begin with the possibilities of the material,” OAMC looks to decode this and examine the idea of combinations. The artist is well-known for mixing materials (mostly explored during his studies at the Black Mountain College), and this exploration has inspired the brand to develop garments that find a balance between a mixture of materials, colors, or techniques.

The result is a FW21 collection centered around juxtaposition. Luxurious and elevated materials find themselves on common-place garments such as tracksuits, while formal pieces such as leather jackets and tailored trousers come fitted with elastics and coulisse adjustments. Contrast is further explored with standout pieces such as the formal-leaning tailoring, shirting, footwear, and accessories that are intersected with metal hardware, most notably an over-the-shoulder bag comprising three unique compartments held together with carabiners.

Elsewhere, OAMC uses printed organza and printed graphic poplin to create an effect of depth and character on a number of pieces, splashing them with images of cassettes, TV static, VHS tapes, and contrasting natural elements such as flowers and a polar bear.

Lastly, the brand continues its boundary-pushing partnership with adidas with the Type O-9 sneaker, which from a single full-body shot shows very little detail. Despite this, we can see the pair proffers a vintage aesthetic, crafted from blue suede and nylon alongside rubber toe cap components. Rounding out the collection is OAMC’s own line of utilitarian boots that are fitted with Vibram outsoles.
