Lad Musician has made a name for itself throughout its native Japan, thanks to a deep respect for rock ‘n roll heritage and the musicians that made it. Appropriately, Spring/Summer 2020 sees the label looking to a typically moody source of inspiration: The Cure. Specifically, Lad Musician is taking cues from the gothic British band’s brooding summer ode, “The Last Day of Summer.”

Like Fall/Winter 2019, Lad Musician infuses its generous, flowing silhouettes with a muted color palette. Occasionally, the all-black, stealth navy or muted khaki layering pieces are interrupted by all-over patterns of crosses and handcuffs in homage to the iconography often associated with the other introspective new wave-associated bands from Britain, like Bauhaus, New Order and The Smiths.

Elsewhere, Lad Musician interrupts the shape of heavy-shouldered blazers, boxy coaches jackets, lengthy coats and knee-length shirts with slim, rockstar-friendly jeans, although plenty of baggy bottoms — even a few skirtlike options to disrupt the masculine shapes — are also on hand. Baggy bomber jackets and a collaborative Admiral sneaker offer a sporty counterpoint to the tailored garments, which include the aforementioned oversized blazers, color-drenched shirting and pleated slacks.

The Spring/Summer 2020 collection launches on Lad Musician’s web store and at stockists like STUDIOUS within the coming weeks. Refresh your memory of The Cure’s classic “The Last Day of Summer” below.
