“Your brain is God,” is the name of Lukas Vincent’s Ex Infinitas AW19 collection. A passage from Timothy Leary’s book in that title is the essence of this collection: “The master-follower thing was particularly annoying. I despise followers of any kind, especially those who follow me. As it happens I am not alone in this distaste; no one really likes followers. Followers do not like themselves, of course; that’s why they crawl. And masters have nothing but contempt for their sub-servants, which is why they impose such colourful embarrassments upon them.” We are very much into this no-follower life. And so Lukas continues to follow his surf-culture loving heart as AW19 produces more Ready To Surf Wear, as he so cleverly calls it. The collection looks at “The Ferals” of 90’s surf culture and the contrasting Bourgeoisie. Think going to Bondi Beach in a fabulous baby pink matching corduroy suit or a neon green and black onesie. So many options. Jackets are sharply cinched at the waist with surfboard leg ropes and woven skate belts and velcro surf wallets are turned into skirts. Never say never.
