British stalwart YMC has returned with the lookbook for its Fall/Winter 2021 collection, looking back at 18 months spent in a series of lockdowns. Taking inspiration from more than a year spent at home, the collection references items creative director Fraser Moss found in his immediate surroundings.

Unveiling the collection, Moss explained this influence, “Antique furnishings, such as Welsh blankets, brocades and embroideries – these became my inspiration. My aim was to give this collection a homely, folk feel.”

The homely influence is referenced through the collection’s color palette — with a focus on reds, greens, blues and other rich tones — as well as interior materials recreated through hand-knit wools, velvets and bouclé. Continuing this theme, the collection also features oversized and unstructured silhouettes, with the relaxed cuts nodding to ’80s indie and the early rave scene.

Highlights from the menswear collection include the Labour Chore jacket, and a 3/4 length coat in Japanese nylon that references the MA-1 bomber jacket and YMC’s continued military influence. The military references continue onto the Sgt Rock raincoat, complete with a Teflon-coated navy. Shirting is also a stand-out, with one item featuring asymmetric sections of wool gingham, while another sports a series of embroidered flowers.

Take a look through the FW21 collection in the gallery above, with the first pieces now available from the YMC web store.
