1x1 Studio AW20
1x1 Studio showcased their AW2020 at Fabric London in Farringdon. Here is what went down.
1x1 Studio has always been synonymous with fantastic technical knitwear and
collections that have a romanticised interpretation of the world we live in. For
Autumn Winter 2020, Creative Director Yi-Ling Kuo, have harnessed inspiration from
the tempestuous elements of love stories they see on their many international
travels. Goodbye kisses at the airport, crossed words on carriages aboard a long train
journey home a relationship break up, held in public space to save face. Love was
never meant to be easy and this collection sets out to document the minutia of love
from happy tears to ironic smiles.
Emotive hues of passionate reds and purple and fresh mint are juxtaposed with
blacks and metal shades. innovative knitting techniques breath newness into the
whole collection alongside the favoured ladder style.
Fabrications are innovative with Corn, recycled and Sparkling gold yarns, vegan
leather and metal trimming. They have a handcrafted sensibility and are designed
with a 70’s point of view. 1x1's pieces are created with the firm belief that there
aren’t many boundaries between menswear and womenswear, the pieces should
reflect the inspiration of this collection and just be loved.

In Gold We Trust AW20
Our last showcase of the day was In Gold We Trust at the Crypt.
Had a great time having some drinks and checking out the AW20 collection.
The Amsterdam-based In Gold We Trust has their new collection looks to the future of fashion with continuity — presenting innovative ways to breathe new life into the old at London Men’s Fashion Week.
This collection was born from cherishing quality materials — their response to an ecologically crumbling world. A perfect sync of classical tailoring and streetwear adds unmatched functionality to the
collection, where hangtags double as stickers and repurposed recycled polyester creates the garments’ neck labels.
Building on their nostalgic influences, the collection encapsulates a yearning for unrefined nature. Organic, functional cuts complemented by vibrant and distinctive colours reinvent every day classics that encompass sweaters, hoodies, T-shirts and windbreakers. The comfort and utile aspect of sportswear and workwear lend depth and dynamism to the silhouettes as the guiding principles that underpin each garment' construction.
As the Franzels put it, “In Gold We Trust is nothing more than a memory of the past made
in the present.” It’s an invitation to reminisce and recall images of former identities and
windows of time, embodying the potential of fashion to evoke powerful narratives.
Manuela Cochat (@manuela_cochat) and Jorge (@jorgecesarsantos) were in attendance.
