Japan’s Lad Musician returns for Spring/Summer 2019 with another art- and music-indebted seasonal range. Dubbed “SELF-DESTRUCTION,” the range takes cues from noise musician Francisco Meirino and punk-adjacent painter Christopher Wool, along with the brand’s familiar inclinations for post-punk and rock music.

A series of oversized black or khaki blazers and billowing trousers are splattered with vivid accents of paint on the chest, shoulders, legs and arms, creating a chaotically beautiful blend of colors. The loose tailoring and bold hues are reminiscent of Japanese master Yohji Yamamoto, complete with ankle-length trench coats and hakama-style trousers. Thematic styling aids in distinguishing the designers, however, with functionally-inspired multi-pocketed vests, Kurt Cobain-influenced sunglasses, trim silver jewelry and pointy-toed creepers adding a youthful subversion.

Expect the collection to hit Japanese stores and stockists like SSENSE next year.

For more musically-inclined seasonal collections, check out KIDILL’s Spring/Summer 2019 range.
