John Lawrence Sullivan S/S08

By admin on May 6th, 2008


John Lawrence Sullivan is the creation of Japanese designer Arashi Yanagawa. After spending 4 years as a professional boxer, Yanagawa started John Lawrence Sullivan – the name of the first bare knuckle heavyweight champion of the world. A self taught designer, his influences range from boxing to aviation.

The spring/summer range focuses more on his aviation influences, featuring airplane seatbelts as belts and braces. The boxing influence comes out in the short shorts, which are cut like boxers shorts. While the entire collection is a strong one, the standout pieces are the suits. The sharp tailoring and slim but not too slim fit makes them the most wearable pieces out of the whole collection. Some of his collection is available at Famous Friend boutique.

Designed by Jessica Ogden and Jean Touitou, and produced in India, the collection’s aesthetics stay true to madras’ heritage with epauletted shirts and denim Bermuda shorts.

So you’ve got no excuse now if you haven’t already picked one up.

D.I.E Spring/Summer 08 range

By admin on February 11th, 2008

Die_superman_tee We’re ardent D.I.E fans here at Brandish. So we could barely contain our excitement when the D.I.E S/S range went up at Oki-Ni. While they do make other items, everyone knows that eye catching t-shirts are their speciality.

This season features a playful take on the Velvet Underground and Nico album cover and my personal favourite, this Superman shirt. I love the fact that it’s yellow, which in turn allows me to pretend that spring is here already. In fact, waiting for spring has become my favourite pastime next to searching for the perfect t-shirt and watching the Wire.
