Backstage: Landlord Spring 2019

With the famous Bill Gates quote “Be Nice To Nerds” printed at the back of the crews’ jackets, one would think that the collection was inspired by the tech billionaire. Yet according to the press notes, “The collection is inspired by the surf and skateboard subculture of that era from the perspective of someone who neither surfs nor skates.”

The connection to Bill Gates is because the designer, Ryohei Kawanishi is a leading-edge Millennial and for Spring/Summer 2019, he took “a nostalgic look at his youth as the first generation to grow up with the internet.”

Moving on… Covering backstage during men’s week is so different from covering womenswear. While we focus on hair style, make up and nail trends with the latter, for men, we are concerned with how the total look is achieved.
