In celebration of LN-CC's 10th anniversary, the retailer will be producing a weekly series of archive sales with hand-picked items from designers including Jil Sander, Acne Studios, Marni, Stone Island, Marine Serre, Vivienne Westwood, and to inaugurate the series, Walter Van Beirendonck.
The offerings from Van Beirendonck's selections span ten different looks from ten different seasons from a 29-year-long career. The items will clearly evoke not only his indelible influence on contemporary stylings (CC: Virgil Abloh), but also his irreverent and uncompromised aesthetic that has continuously shocked and aroused without bowing out to commerical pressure.
As Eshann Dhingra, Buyer for Core and Conscious notes, "from his first ever collection, to now, Walter has never followed industry trends. He has paved his own way by continuously doing what he wants, with a purpose. This has and will continue to make him stand out amongst the rest.”
Speaking of standing out, among the selection is a full look from the FW95/96 Paradise Pleasure Productions collection comprised of zip-fastening quilted overalls, an acidic green latex mask, and calf-high rubber boots. Definitely not one for the mainstream.
Check out the pieces on sale now at LN-CC.
