EASTWOOD DANSO VENTURES VENTURES TAILORING WITH STANDOUT SUITS & SHELL-ADORNED LEATHER BLAZERS
Emerging designer Eastwood Danso has presented his Spring/Summer 2020 collection under his eponymous label. In the lookbook, Danso spotlights his hiking-inspired collaboration with Converse alongside pieces which start to see the young designer evolve outside of streetwear aesthetics. Danso’s previous work includes streetwear-indebted capsules with OBS, and his first collection back in 2017 was described as a “trial and error.” He noted that “saying my first collection was more streetwear doesn’t close any doors for me. I don’t shy away from the term ‘streetwear’ like some other people do.” Fast forward to SS20, Eastwood Danso presents a sophisticated selection of tailoring, streetwear-inspired pieces and reinterpreted staples. Standout pieces from the SS20 collection include the orange two-piece suit, which features slashed elbows and white panels on the trousers, as well as the Puka shell leather suit, which sees small bead-like shells adorn the collar of the jacket and hang from the trousers like a belt chain. Other notable pieces from SS20 include the introduction of Danso’s symbol chains and the light khaki shellsuit, which combines elements of workwear with a typical tracksuit alongside elevated silver-tone hardware. Take a look at Eastwood Danso’s SS20 collection in the gallery above and keep an eye out for pieces to drop at retailers such as LN-CC in the near future.
