On the final day of our history-making, all-menswear Pop-In @ Nordstrom: Heartbreakers Club, let’s take a moment to reflect on a glorious past few weeks, packed with legendary thugs, digital graffiti, and motorcycles in space. Also: interpretive dance. In case you haven’t seen it, check out our campaign video above (starring Seattle movement artist Matt Drews)—and keep reading for an expansive gallery of visually poetic photos from behind the scenes (and featuring rare wares from Mark McNairy, Hood By Air, LPD New York and more).
LPD New York
With this month’s all-menswear pop-in shop—Heartbreakers Club—about to shut its doors this Sunday, we wanted to alert you to one of the shop’s more unique offerings while it’s still in stock: LPD New York.
A digital-age sensation that rose to recognition via the internet, LPD is highly divisive: Supporters consider the T-shirts and mesh jerseys (backs emblazoned with monikers and birth years of legendary fashion designers) to be a brilliant mash-up of the dualistically competitive and clique-y worlds of style and sport, while detractors (“haters,” if you will) cry glorified bootleg.
As equal-opportunity fans of both sports and fashion, we root for the former of those two teams—and see no reason why a Margiela jersey shouldn’t hang next to Larry Bird in our locker room, er, closet. Keep reading for a Q&A with LPD founder Benjamin Fainlight and creative director M O S E S™.
