Gap UK will launch a new collaborative project with New York-based up-and-coming contemporary brand Landlord. Available exclusively at the “I am Gap” pop-up store in London’s Covent Garden, the unisex collection consists of classic Gap pieces such as khakis, hoodies and t-shirts, as seen through the lens of Landlord.
Founded in 2015 by Central Saint Martin’s and Parsons graduate Ryohei Kawanishi, Landlord’s debut collection for autumn/winter 2016 was heavily inspired by Gap’s designs from the 1990s. Kawanishi was inspired by classic Gap khakis advertisements and developed this capsule collection by mixing Landlord’s utilitarian aesthetic with that of Gap’s iconic, everyday uniform.
Pieces in the collection range in price from £35 to £145, and will be available starting Thursday, March 9 through the end of the month.
This is the first collaboration for Landlord, which has gained a substantial cult following since launching in 2015, notably among some of the music world’s most stylish, including The Weeknd, Big Sean, A$AP Rocky and Machine Gun Kelly.
