Creative Director Ryohei Kawanishi, of LANDLORD cited, "the art works of artist Isa Genzken, who often draws upon everyday material culture, including design, consumer goods, the media, architecture and urban environments." as the major inspiration for the Spring 2017 collection titled "Please Excuse our Appearance" which had its debut at New York Fashion Week: Men's, this morning. Workwear elements were given art-house details like pops of fluorescent hues in unexpected pairings for an overall effect that was fun, and somewhat unintentionally channeled a serious early '90s Brit-Alt-Pop vibe (think, EMF, Jesus Jones, Ned's Atomic Dustbin). This made the collection hugely likable and it can be easily pictured becoming a go-to brand for the arty modernist and the retro fashion fan alike.
