In line with Spring/Summer 2019, Shibuya-based Lad Musician returns with another thoughtful collection of muted looks for Fall/Winter 2019. Leaning heavily on baggy cuts, infrequent floral patterns and an understated color palette, “NEW DISORDER” is another thoughtful step forward for the ever-evolving brand.

In a press release, the brand explains, “The collection was born out of the confusion that arose while trying to interpret oriental and western philosophy. Specifically, the devotion to understanding the impossible about ‘Non-existence’ and ‘Existence.’” These lofty conceits fuel a selection of versatile, comfort-centric layers. Though it retains some core elements of the rock ‘n’ roll fascination that fueled early Lad offerings, FW19 is symbolic of how Lad Musician has evolved its design ethos.

FW19 sees the Japanese imprint continuing to trade riders jackets and distressed denim for cocoon coats and asymmetrical shirts. Chunky Vibram-soled derbies anchor the hakama-style trousers and balloon-shaped MA-1 jackets, a forward-thinking take on the street staple that mirrors the coaches-inspired short coat. 19th century floral paintings inspire the drifting feathers and leaves that accent several items, adding flashes of color to the mostly-black goods, further softened by fluffy mohair knitwear and graphic T-shirts.

The collection hits Lad Musician’s webshop and stockists later this year.

Elsewhere in Japan, ARCHON crafts another seasonal selection of technical layering pieces.
