Daniel W. Fletcher has been one to watch for a good old while now. You’ll have seen him chopping his way through Netflix’s Next In Fashion, read about him taking the helm as the artistic director of menswear at Fiorucci, or maybe even ran into him somewhere down Hackney’s narrow way. Point being, he’s been around the block, and has learnt how to rustle up some fantastic menswear in the process.

This past week Fletcher finally unveiled the looks from his highly-anticipated SS21 show, inspired by the enigmatic allure of the musical greats from decades past and present. The collection is a direct response to the swelling void left by COVID-19 restrictions in regards to the live music scene, with Fletcher himself showing several weeks off the Fashion Week schedule as his own industry grapples with an ever-changing landscape spurred on by the virus. Though we can’t see any immediate references to Kylie at The Brits in 2002, the obvious standard for live music greatness, we’re sure they’re in there, alongside nods to rock legend Mick Jagger and The 1975’s Matty Healy.

Re-purposing off-cuts and leftover fabrics from his studio, Fletcher kicks things off with a patchwork two set in a monochrome of baby blue, brown, black and white. Sleek chunky hardware in silver pokes out from belt loops, or drapes round the waist atop a striking doublebreasted blazer, manifesting good energy with accented crystals.

Thick, contrast stitch natural denim follows, in jackets with boxy shoulders, or jeans in slouched silhouettes – paired with delicate knit vests and strikingly minimal bucket bags. Whether you’re after dark leather jackets, split seam trousers, shirts cut with military precision or hardware plastered t-shirts, Fletcher’s body-clinging fits pose that anyone can be a star, so long as they dress for the part.

DANIEL w. FLETCHER spring/summer 2021 is released at 9am on 19 November at www.danielwfletcher.com.
