Brooklyn-based designer Ryohei Kawanishi unveils Landlord‘s FW18 collection during New York Men’s Fashion Week.
For the brand’s fifth collection, Kawanishi draws inspiration from London’s Punk music and the subculture that’s influenced nonconformist fashion over the last few decades.
He puts his signature spin on the rebellious youth and anti-establishment music scene with British flag motifs, oversized “Prince” emblems, to animal and checker-print knits, to strapped cargo pants and military bombers. The FW18 collection effortlessly infuses a punk-style DIY approach with the brand’s signature utilitarian streetwear.
Landlord’s NYFWM’s show also featured five major collaborations that further conveys the collections theme. They created iconic rubber Chelsea boots with Novesta, military-inspired outwear with Alpha Industries; studded leather jackets with Blackmeans; cargo jackets and with Kosuke Tsumura; and a stand out custom boot with Dr. Martens.
The Dr. Marten collab was a fan favorite as they were essentially designed to look like popular shoes including the Nike AF1’s. Sadly, the custom boots won’t be for sale and were just made for the show.
