The latest season AW2020 from Art School directed by creative partnership Eden Loweth and Tom Barratt bring a collaboration with British artist Maggi Hambling on several pieces, using layers of black fabric representing pail paint. In turn, each layer consists of recycled material from previous collections, to connect and acknowledge with the importance of the past and the biography of material.
The artist smock is at the core of several looks, with a note to genderless workwear. Using contrasting fabrics such as PVC and rope suggesting a rebellion of PUNK into the ethos.
Artist Richard Porter joined Art School for a second season, developing sculpture which is worn on the body. Each piece plays a autobiography with British landscape; Traces of rocks, driftwood, fossils and witchstones reference the sea.
