Designers Sam Linder and Kirk Millar find beauty in bringing together the unexpected, even when it comes to their own creative partnership. Having only met four years ago with different backgrounds and approaches to fashion, they came together to create Linder — both the label and brick-and-mortar store — in 2013. This is their second official collection, and their first major show at New York Fashion Week Men’s, which took place on Monday at Dixon Place, a theatrical space on the Lower East Side. W magazine also visited them at their Gramercy townhouse last Friday for a behind-the-scenes look. Here, you can see every unusual detail from the collection up close, like asymmetrical pant hems, uneven pockets, bandage waists, socks with zippers, and more.
