PFW: ERNEST W. BAKER Fall Winter 2019.20 Collection

Discover Ernest W. Baker‘s Fall Winter 2019.20 collection presented during the recently wrapped up Paris Fashion Week. Inspired by Detroit 1970-1980, and the lives that passed through the city, the collection is defined on two contradictory elements, blending classic with post-industrial feeling.


Researching Detroit from the 70s and the authentic spirit of the city brought the designers to the prolific work of Dave Jordano. A Detroit native photographer, whose work documented the ins and outs of the city’s life throughout the 70’s. A glimpse into the various subcultures of Detroit brings inspiration for the season’s lookbook, providing a rich cast of characters representative of the eccentric Detroit locals. The collection once again takes reference to the co-designers grandfather and 92 year old muse, Ernest W. Baker. A company brochure was 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. – from Ernest W.
