Italian label GR10K makes workwear for the contemporary age, crafting brainy apparel driven by utilitarian textiles and far-flung influences. Fall/Winter 2021 sees the brand taking cues from Swedish artist and playwright Peter Weiss, whose revolutionary anti-war and Kafka-inspired writing roots the collection in the here and now.

The Sitterwerk Foundation’s Kunstbibliothek reference library, where the lookbook is shot, is “a place where production, research, preservation, and the mediation of art and craft interpenetrate and enrich one another in diverse ways,” GR10K explains. This locale sets the tone for the collection to probe notions of contemporary uniforms, apparel that serves multiple functions beyond mere style.

Patches printed with some of Weiss’ late career collages grace a variety of recognizable silhouettes, including multi-pocketed work shirts and deep tote bags that are styled alongside updated iterations of seasonal necessities like fleece pullovers, collared shirts, long-sleeved polos and work pants. Cut anatomically and riddled with adjustable details, the trousers provide relaxed shapes essential for balancing the weighty layers above.

Elsewhere GR10K’s focus on thoughtful construction is readily apparent in the weatherproof parkas, shell jackets and custom footwear, repurposing unassuming shapes with the brand’s upcycled, high-spec textiles. These technical items are lent an organic edge is lent by woven vests, shorts and base layers cut from thick jersey.

Look for GR10K’s FW21 collection to hit stockists like HBX later this year.

Other seasonal function-driven collections were recently introduced by the likes of Ten C and C.P. Company
