London-based #UTR20 brand Daniel W. Fletcher showed the eponymous designer’s new collection at London Fashion Week Men’s over the weekend.
At his Fall/Winter 2019 show, Fletcher furthered his exploration of British identity, this time looking to England’s North. The collection’s use of fine fabrics from British mills, Prince of Wales check, and merino wool all point to the region’s rich history of textile manufacturing, in particular the double-faced scarves made at Yorkshire’s historic Abraham Moon & Sons mill.
Highlights from the collection include luxurious rugby polos, strapped blazers, silk shirts with prints taken from photojournalist John Bulmer, straight-legged pants with contrast stitching, and a return of the split-hem pant silhouette — first seen during SS19 — here falling over chunky Doc Martens, another staple of British heritage.
As with previous seasons, Daniel W. Fletcher’s FW19 collection takes socio-political issues into consideration, here in the shape of photos of ’60s Britain printed on shirts, depicting a time of mass social and economic change — and arguably a sense of hope for the future.
