The Best Fashion Collaborations of the Fall 2020 Season as chosen by Kenneth Richard
In addition to creating exciting and unexpected avenues for creative possibility, collaborations by fashion houses often give an interesting look at new directions in which the industry may be heading. Especially in a year as disruptive as 2020, collaborations provided unique opportunities to experiment with new approaches to communication within the rapidly changing cultural and consumerist landscape.
The latest entry in the ongoing collaboration between Fendi and stylist/design duo Chaos blew us away with its brilliant cinematography and editing work. The collaborative approach that Both takes to almost all of their releases makes them one of the most exciting and versatile brands in the industry, and this season’s collaboration with Monsé was especially fruitful.
Prada’s partnership with Adidas represented another exciting moment in the foray that the luxury fashion industry is making into the exploding sneaker market. Virgil Abloh’s unexpected collaboration with Mercedes-Benz felt like an exciting artistic experiment for its own sake, and once again positioned him as a leading figure of modern design guiding us toward a new definition of luxury.
