Drifters LDN is a contemporary London based menswear brand. For SS17 the brand takes inspiration from what has come of land spaces once an erosion has taken place. The Collection, similar to the name drifters shows that change is constant and biology depends on adaptation otherwise survival will be low. The brand takes what is over looked and formed it into their “Forgotten Lands,” SS17 collection. In this instant this specific inspiration comes from Kolmanscop in Namibia where lands have been submerged in sand. Eroded elements and broken architecture plays a role in choosing the designers pattern work.
The collections statement piece this season is a two-piece silk marble inspired suit. This sample on its own optimises the root of inspiration for the “Forgotten lands” which is a collection that represents the working man in urban street wear. This shows how art can come from deserted sources of inspiration and interpreted into a fully cohesive collection. Drifters LDN trademark earth tones are carried out through the collection, consisting of suits, two-toned cotton jumpsuits, and padded embellishment to complement the aftermath of lost lands.
