Grace Wales Bonner, a graduate of Central Saint Martins, has ascended to the forefront of British fashion, consistently showcasing her talents at Paris Fashion Week each season. Her eponymous label, Wales Bonner, returned to its usual slot for Fall/Winter 2024, marking the brand's most intimate presentation to date.

Wales Bonner is renowned for striking a balance between preppy athleticism, making it synonymous with London's youthful and cool crowds. The FW24 collection demonstrated Bonner's mastery, introducing elevated co-gendered wardrobes infused with sophistication. This season, she explored academic playgrounds, infusing the collection with soft tailoring, cozy knitwear, and school uniforms for graduating pupils around the world. Varsity jackets and striped crewnecks, adorned with "HOWARD" markings, took center stage on the runway, embodying Bonner's collegiate inspiration.

Polished suits featuring oversized lapels harmonized with pleated, baggy denim, while robust-shouldered coats, leather aviator jackets, and fuzzy parkas redefined the modern scholarly look. Bonner unveiled her latest collaboration with adidas, expanding her viral partnership with the Three Stripes to include nylon jerseys and a crocodile-embossed Superstar sneaker—an inaugural design for the designer. Venturing into new territory, Bonner also collaborated with Timberland, presenting bedazzled workwear boots in the classic wheat color. Timberland is set to debut three collaborations throughout Paris Fashion Week, starting with Pharrell Williams' Louis Vuitton, followed by Wales Bonner, and concluding with White Mountaineering.
