NYFWM: Landlord F/W Presentation pays tribute to 90’s-00’s Hip-Hop Genre


Creative Director, Ryohei Kawanishi, presented his third Landlord collection February 1st at Skylight Clarkson Square for NYFW: Men’s. Kawanishi found inspiration for this collection based on the fashion scene of 90’s-00’s hip-hop artists noting their influence on fashion and found inspiration through more current street styles that he’s seen from his neighborhood in Harlem. This collection was designed to present streetwear through a new lens through fusing this aesthetic with Landlord’s utilitarian styles. During the presentation, the models came out to Juvenile’s “Back That Ass Up”.  The line ranges from fur coats to nylon track suits and to oversized hoodies and workshirts accented with chain medallions and shoes by Mauri in exotic stingray or alligator skins. On Kawanishi’s idea for the collection, “I wanted to incorporate a similar sensibility into this collection so we could bring an element of luxury back into today’s streetwear conversation.

Kawanishi also found himself enamored with the digital artwork of James Howard, after having visited an exhibit in London in 2010 called the Saatchi Gallery. He was drawn to his work as it reflected the “bling bling” era of the Pen & Pixel graphic design styled, diamond encrusted hip-hop covers. The combination led to their collaboration featured in the graphics seen throughout a few of the looks in this latest collection.
