A-Cold-Wall was founded by London-based designer Samuel Ross in 2015. Prior to launching A-Cold-Wall, Ross worked under Off-White’s Virgil Abloh as an assistant. Often referred to as ACW, A-Cold-Wall is a response to the British social climate and incites a cultural conversation that celebrates the energy of the youth.
A-Cold-Wall was influenced by architecture and industrial design in London’s street culture. The brand is considered modern yet luxurious menswear with youth culture ties. ACW features workwear apparel and Savile Row tailoring that are combined to create a high-end yet deconstructed look. ACW can often be found using utilitarian materials such as PVC, rubber, latex, nylon and more. The brand is always looking for new ways to continue using these types of materials in a more sustainable way.
Samuel Ross has quickly earned respect from not only industry insiders but big name celebrities as well. A-Cold-Wall can be seen on Rihanna, Jaden Smith, The Weeknd, and more.
