Brooklyn-based designer Ryohei Kawanishi began designing his menswear label Landlord with a U.S. military-contracted factory in 2015. Born in Tottori, Japan in 1987, Kawanishi graduated from Parsons School of Design in 2015 with a Masters of Fine Arts in Fashion Design and Society, and studied at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London in 2011. Kawanishi has exhibited his works globally, including MoMA (2017); Museum of Arts and Design (2017); Artipelag in Sweden (2015); Biennale International Design Saint Etienne in France (2015); Trapholt in Denmark (2015); Somerset House in London (2012); Mode Biennale in the Netherlands (2013). A runner-up for the Nova Prize, Kawanishi was shortlisted at the International Emerging Fashion Talent Showcase in 2012, and is first scholar for the Uniqlo-Tomodachi Scholarship. The Landlord team consists of graduates from Parsons and Central Saint Martins. They make contemporary, twisted casual and sporty designs rooted in military style. LANDLORD was named in honor of starting a fashion label with a factory manager.
