JOHN LAWRENCE SULLIVAN – PARIS FASHION WEEK SS12 MENSWEAR

John Lawrence Sullivan

John Lawrence Sullivan was a myriad of military, Eastern and heritage influences. Granite versions of camouflage were explored on bomber jackets and a multi pocket utility shirt, as the John Lawrence man melded with his urban terrain. Trousers tethered between the agility of combats and the composure of tailoring as these patterns merged. Silken macs and double breasted blazers were belted by a heavy duty leather belt; with an army green interpretation drawing parallels to a German sergeant coat circa WW II.

Crew neck athletic silk t-shirts were layered over shirts Jil Sander style. A note of bed-time slumber and tradition infiltrated the collection as classic pajama stripes were applied to suits. Checks of all clans were set to blazers and trousers as traditional met golf course sartorial wit. Leather biker jackets and waistcoats were also introduced into the mix.The colour palette was made up of rich Eastern hues from spiced yellows, leafy greens, darkened magenta and luscious reds.
