For its debut runway collection, LSW takes inspiration from its designers’ many travels–particularly a week-long sojourn to Thailand’s culturally diverse Bangkok, topped off with a side trip to carefree Phuket. Filled with billowy tops and high-waisted trousers, the LSW Summer 2018 capsule collection follows a style savant keen on becoming a fashionable wanderer.

“He is in search of new experiences,” designers Koko Gonzales and Aram Loe share. “Also, he is someone who constantly yearns for learning and [evolution].” We imagine the LSW man frequently traversing the Mediterranean islands or the Indian Ocean, for sure.

LSW plays with silhouettes, form, and details with frayed cuffs, see-through fabrications, and cinched waists befitting fashionable getaways. We can’t wait to see more from this up-and-coming brand. – Rey Ilagan
