NEW YORK MEN’S WEEK / — For the Fall/Winter 2018 collection, creative director Ryohei Kawanishi draws inspiration from Punk music and the subculture that has influenced nonconformist fashion over the last four decades. The collection fuses Punk’s DIY approach with LANDLORD’s utilitarian/military-inspired street and workwear.
LANDLORD’s ever-evolving themes of music and subculture allow Kawanishi to express a consistent seasonal narrative, while regularly pushing style boundaries and exploring his nostalgic perspective of youth culture.
For LANDLORD’s fifth season, the brand is debuting new collaborations, including a capsule collection with Alpha Industries, studded leather jackets with BLACKMEANS, custom boots with Dr. Martens, and Novesta, and a designer collaboration with Kosuke Tsumura (the creative mind behind famed Japanese brand FINAL HOME).
LANDLORD is a menswear brand founded in 2015 in New York, when Ryohei Kawanishi teamed up with a U.S. military-contracted factory owner to start a streetwear/fashion brand, rooted in utilitarian style.
Fall/Winter 2018 marks LANDLORD’s fifth season, and fourth consecutive season showing at New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Retailers include Opening Ceremony in New York, Los Angeles, Japan and online; SSENSE and several stockists in Japan.
Dubbed by Billboard Magazine as “hip-hop’s favorite label,” LANDLORD has been worn by many celebrities, including Big Sean, Joey Bada$$, Migos, A$AP Rocky, Rae Sremmurd, The Weeknd, Tyga and more.
