1017 ALYX 9SM
Been Trill co-founder and previous Nick Knight, Kanye West, and Alexander McQueen collaborator Matthew M. Williams launched his womenswear label 1017 ALYX 9SM in 2015. With over a decade of experience working in streetwear, music and art Williams attracted the attention of Givenchy in 2020 and has now named their Creative Director.
Co-founder of high-end streetwear destination FourTwoFour, Guillermo Andrade set to establish the shop's in-house label 424 in 2015. Showcasing an effortless approach to workwear-inspired design, Andrade pulls from elements of contemporary art paired with the unique nonchalant spirit of Los Angeles to deliver a range of easy-to-wear staples.
Commemorating the first 10 years of FourTwoFour on Fairfax, Complex SHOP collaborated with founder Guillermo Andrade on an exclusive capsule of reworked & reimagined archival pieces from 424's early years. All handcrafted in LA, the limited-release items have been deconstructed and recreated to convey a completely new look and feel.
London street culture and the zeitgeist of Britain's working class, Samuel Ross launched A-Cold-Wall* in the fall of 2015 to reflect hegemonic disparities and youth expression in contemporary fashion. The directional aesthetic of Ross' men’s ready-to-wear line is informed by his studies in both graphic design and illustration, and creative work alongside Off-White's Virgil Abloh. His distinctly multidisciplinary vision is present in handcrafted graphic t-shirts and reversible French terry hoodies. Pairing logo-printed pullovers, lounge pants, and hooded jackets, A-Cold-Wall* is the curated product of unconventional tailoring and streamlined design.
