Linder Spring 2019: New York Fashion Week

Linder NYFW FW19

Represented by Purple PR.

Designed round-table style, with a lot of weight put on whether members of the team said they would wear a piece or not, the clothes of SS19 are intended to fit naturally into the day-to-day of someone who doesn’t necessarily want to identify with a brand or its image, but wants to choose outfits garment by garment based on personal affinity.

Which led to an eclectic assortment of fabrics and silhouettes, although there is a through line. In particular, the shapes and finishings are mostly drawn from the worlds of workwear, athletic wear, and other utilitarian realms, and these vocabularies provide the decoration wherever there is any. This gives the clothes a feeling someone might describe as masculine, or androgynous, but they are not meant to indicate anything in particular about gender, beyond the reality of body morphology. The assumption is women who wear these clothes will likely be doing the same types of things as the men around them, which is our daily experience.

Linen and light cottons for warm weather, denim, t-shirts, sweatshirts and sneakers because these are what we see city people wear every day, in any number of occupations and also at night. Plaids and stripes and color blocking, mixed up together, because this way of combining individual pieces, rather than wearing a pre-styled outfit, seems like the most natural way currently to express individuality.

Stretch base layers look like they may become a new staple, and they are worn by multitudes, although there still seems to be a sense that they belong to the world of workouts, and are too casual for a put-together look. There are signs this is changing, and these pieces are meant to be worn alone, or in combination with woven garments, as part of an intentionally style-minded wardrobe.
