John Lawrence Sullivan Spring Summer 2018


The collection: This is the second season that Japanese label John Lawrence Sullivan has presented at London Fashion Week. Sending both male and female models down the runway – though the looks are essentially menswear – the SS18 collection displayed a post-punk and masculine energy. Trousers were high waisted and voluminous while power suits took on a different vibe as they were paired with retro sunglasses. Leather jackets had a worn and distressed look, fitting in with the rebellious nature. Never one to shy away from colour, variations of reds, purples, khakis and blues lit up the runway in a sophisticated manner.

The brand: A ex-professional boxer, designer Arashi Yanagawa founded John Lawrence Sullivan in 2003. The name pays homage to a man who embodied traits like strength, dignity and personality. Yanagawa focuses on tailoring while modernising details and adding elements of power.

The presentation: The show took place at 180 The Strand and models stomped down the runway to pulsating techno beats with hands in their pockets, highlighting the post-punk angst of the collection.

We love: The double breasted sleeveless coat with wide peak lapel gives a new meaning to looking refined and edgy at the same time. The oversized silhouette adds a level of badass cool – think Trinity in The Matrix – and the sans sleeve situation means this jacket would work even during the warmer days.

In case you missed it, check out their AW17 collection.
