Designer Spotlight: Linder

Linder from New York City comes to Apartment25 and we could not be more excited! The brand created by Sam and Kirk rapidly caught our eye in Paris last season. For their AW19 collection they take on Russian opulence and the Romanov Family. Read more here!  —  

LINDER brand’s aesthetic reflects the partnership of Sam Linder and Kirk Millar with both of their unconventional and dynamic ideas.

The results are a mix of thoughtful design and execution, historical reference, and sensitivity to silhouette, into a dark but celebratory sensibility, creating the tension that is the brand’s DNA.

Even though Sam and Kirk have only known each other since 2012, they clicked and decided to start the brand and had their first runway show in New York for Spring/Summer 2017.

Since then they both have taken different roles in the brand Sam fully in charge of the Womenswear side and Kirk overseeing the Menswear.

For Fall 2019 Kirk's inspiration came from the Romanov Family giving us some serious aristocratic Anastasia vibes, the collection consists of some traditional silk scarves with the Romanov family portraits in them as well as, linen shorts, jeweled printed spandex, button-up jackets in bright orange and not-your-average royal jewels. All pieces evoke a sense of stateliness yet all very wearable and with a luxurious feel.
