The American architect Richard Buckminster Fuller once said “Nature is trying very hard to make us succeed, but nature does not depend on us. We are not the only experiment,” and for Fall/Winter 2022, Luke Meier‘s OAMC looks to nature as a means for inspiration, studying the natural form to offer an aesthetic appreciation while simultaneously tying it to function for the modern world.

This season, the brand puts a focus on formalwear and outerwear that’s geometric, structured, angular, and tailored — everything nature isn’t. But the injection of color and prints, textures and choice materials, make way for the fluidity that makes nature so unique. In turn, OAMC’s collection is “nature through the human eye.”

Knitwear undulates like trees peaking out of a valley, while the colors — specifically on the distressed hand-knitted jumper — look like moss growing on the bark of a tree trunk. However, patches of vivid green and deep blue add a human touch, reflecting the reality of nature once more.

Elsewhere, we find the second season of OAMC Re:Work, presenting ready-made items that have been recontextualized under Meier’s lens, prominent within its ongoing series of Peacemaker liners. These ex-military jackets have been overdyed and reconstructed before wool lining is added for the puffiest Peacemakers thus far.

In the formal sphere, a cape is cut rigid and looks like a sophisticated take on a poncho that you’d wear on a hike, while literal florals (a black print of a flower) adorns the shoulder of a cream belted coat. A wool coat, paired with matching trousers and leather gloves, features a yellow growth over a brown base, mapping out the way nature takes over nature, yet contrasting this is the volume of the leather and recycled nylon padded down coats that are more reminiscent of clouds.

For OAMC, the FW22 collection isn’t an empty attempt at appearing sustainably minded. As a result, the brand states that: “Nature should be cherished, so this season OAMC is partnering with several charities to help improve our planet. As the real root source of our materials and our sustenance, it’s extremely important.”

Take a look at the OAMC FW22 collection in the gallery above, and expect the collection to arrive online later this year.
