Central Saint Martins graduate Grace Wales Bonner has risen to the helm of British fashion, showcasing her talents at Paris Fashion Week every season. Her eponymous label — Wales Bonner — has returned to its customary slot for Fall/Winter 2024, seeing the brand hold its most intimate presentation to date.

Wales Bonner commonly balances preppy athleticism, becoming synonymous with London’s youthful cool crowds. FW24 proved that Wales Bonner is at the top of her game, debuting elevated co-gendered wardrobes injected with sophistication. She moved onto academic playgrounds this season, packing the collection with soft tailoring, cozy knitwear, and school uniforms for graduating pupils worldwide. Varsity jackets and striped crewnecks stormed the runway destined for greatness, boasting “HOWARD” markings that unlocked Wales Bonner’s college campus.

Polished suits with oversized lapels found stability with pleated baggy denim, while strong-shouldered coats, leather aviator jackets, and fuzzy parkas redefined the modern scholar. Wales Bonner revealed her latest adidas collaboration on the runway, expanding her viral partnership with the Three Stripes through nylon jerseys and a crocodile-embossed Superstar sneaker — a first for the designer. Wales Bonner stepped into new territory with Timberland, presenting her inaugural collaboration with bedazzled workwear boots in classic wheat. Timberland is slated to debut three unions throughout PFW, kicking off with Pharrell WilliamsLouis Vuitton, followed by Wales Bonner, and finishing with White Mountaineering.

Take a closer look at Wales Bonner’s FW24 collection in the gallery above, and stay tuned for more Paris Fashion Week content on Hypebeast.
