J.W. Anderson continued to flirt with femininity for Fall 2015 surpving up a heady, amped-up mix of texture-heavy retro hits with a fuck-off shearling coat, a brave man’s purple leather jacket and exaggerated over the shoulder collars were surprisingly attractive. Three words: Chaise lounge chic.

Andersen’s ideas of what a gentleman does or doesn’t do are far from what’s articulated in men’s fashion magazines as pink lace hoodies and exaggerated urban sportswear accentuated with hyper-feminine flourishes created a gangster and samurai hybrid for fall 2015. One word: cool.
A frothy blend of a psychedelic color spectrum, digital prints and shearling that could easily clad any bearded (and flower bearded) Brooklyn boy who is unafraid of loneness and starved for creative validation but has a blown-back pompadour that’s hard not to try to emulate.
