For his Spring/Summer 2019 collection, Liam Hodges took inspiration from Las Vegas, drawn to the city by its depiction in Donna Tartt’s 2013 novel, The Goldfinch. The collection, titled Slick Trash, features mix-matched checked pyjama suits, bowling shirts and bootleg t-shirts highlighting the strip’s most notorious casinos.
“For me, it’s about the clash of American symbols versus our brand’s happy-go-lucky take on things versus the kind of loneliness you find in the desert,” Hodges told HYPEBEAST.
