Linder SS ’20 Collection is Collegiate Cool
Linder always delivers romantic and concept-heavy collections and its release for Spring/Summer 2020 is no different. This time around, the New York-based label follows the narrative of a privileged educated young man who seemingly struggles with purpose and escape — this is represented through the accompanying lookbook which features a series of men in a variety of backdrops that are serene yet sterile. There are plenty of hints at elite educational motifs (like vintage sport stripes and a modified cricket jacket ) that are contrasted with exaggerated hardware details, like label’s signature exposed oversized buttons on denim pieces. An equestrian theme is also explored, most strikingly with two leather paneled jackets — one look is complete with a riding crop that’s more S&M than country club, which isn’t a bad thing. It’s like the sartorial equivalent of the opulence of Cruel Intentions versus the internal conflicts of Brett Easton Ellis’ Rules of Attraction. Plus the label’s popular ‘Boyfriend’ print makes a happy return.
