Another Clothing Line Inspired By A Leonard Cohen Line
Reviewing, as is my wont, the goings-on in the world of haute couture, I came upon the information that Leonard Cohen, award-winning singer-songwriter, legendary ladies’ man, and certified icon, has, according to Hypebeast, again sparked the imagination of a designer to create a line of swell duds for cool dudes:
The Soulland spring/summer 2011 collection is inspired by the Leonard Cohen poem, ‘The Suit’ – and in more ways than one. With the collection Soulland designer, Silas Adler, has played with the symbolic meaning and seriousness a suit can give the person, who wears it. In addition, the collection literally includes a suit, the first in Soulland history.
For those who have somehow missed the news, Soulland’s head designer is one Silas Adler, a 25 year-old one-time skateboarder who founded Soulland in 2002 to create what the hip rags call “lifestyle garments.” Originally specializing in print t-shirts, the company has, according to its brochure, “now grown into a well-established men’s wear brand recognized worldwide and represented in leading stores across Europe and the USA.”
