New brand: Wales Bonner
Très Bien are excited to welcome Wales Bonner for the first time for the Fall/Winter 2018 season. Grace Wales Bonner founded her eponymous brand after earning her B.A. from Central Saint Martins in 2014. Each season, Grace continues her exploration of black male identity, telling a story via her collections, which typically include sharp tailoring, unexpected embellishment, and a twist of sporty ease.
For FW18, Grace honed in on the French-Caribbean philosophy of "créolité"—an active process of forming identity. Très Bien’s curation of Wales Bonner FW18 includes luxe interpretations of sport classics, such as an anorak in vibrant yellow silk, and track pants with knit embroidery, along with a polo shirt incorporating the artwork of Jacob Lawrence, an important African American painter who represented African American stories of migration and everyday life.
