John Lawrence Sullivan was inspired by psychopath killers this season. Wait, what? Before you panic, he went more with a concept of a natural born killer having multiple personalities — hence — many different styles within the collection, which isn’t too traumatizing at all.
You can feel the differences in the collection right off the bat. Some of the garments give off a distinct cowboy vibe, like denim trousers and vests over collared shirts paired with cowboy boots. On the other side of things, 80s boxy, oversize city dweller vibe, like baggy suits.
The different ‘personalities’ within the collection somehow swing together perfectly, fitting fabrics like velvet with leather, and corduroy with wool. BDMOTP particularly loved the jackets, ranging from tight black leather and pinstriped, oversize blazers to long purple trench coats.
We never really thought about what items a psychopath would wear, but leather gloves seem to be fitting, and you’ll see these within the collection. Note, though, that wearing leather gloves does NOT mean you are a pyschopath? Or maybe it does? It in any case, they look cool and will keep your hands warm for winter!
BDMOTP’s favorite look was a wool oversize coat lined with green, paired with leather green pants and a cowboy-inspired plaid green top. We’re not quite sure what type of occasion would inspire such an outfit, but we love it just the same. In fact, BDMOTP loved most of the outerwear in this collection, so if you’re looking for the perfect fall or winter coat that has a unique twist to it, try one from John Lawrence Sullivan.
