ERNEST W. BAKER Autumn / Winter 2019

Detroit 1970-1980, a decade in which the city was seen both at its best and worst, yet continued to endure. These ten years in Detroit and the lives that passed through the city were an inspiration for the label’s Autumn Winter 2019 collection of Ernest W. Baker.

Blending classics with a post-industrial feeling, the collection is defined on these two contradictory elements. Contrasting blue collar details with a soft edge, or vice versa, seen in garments such as silk carpenter trousers, denim blazers, and virgin wool trucker jackets.

The collection once again makes reference to the co-designers grandfather and 92-year-old muse, Ernest W. Baker. A company brochure was an inspiration for the seasons print, as 12 portraits are listed under the headline “1973 E.W. Baker Advertising, Employee’s of the Month.” Both playing off a kitsch American tradition and paying homage to the real people and workers of Detroit brings the collection full circle.
