Oakley by Samuel Ross

Ascendant designer Samuel Ross of A-COLD-WALL* notoriety presents a capsule collection in partnership with sports performance stalwart Oakley. The result is a demonstration of 'working contradictions': Ross, not one to shy from any definition of 'work,' assembles cool, unemotional performance elements in unprecedented abstract forms. Asymmetrical necklines, swishing panel inserts, and imperfectly overlapped metal paintstrokes all subtly point fingers at the underlying artistic compulsion that makes this collaboration much more substantial than just another drop in the futurewear bucket.
