Fashion designer JW Anderson has once again tapped Finnish artist Tom of Finland for the second capsule now, following last year’s three-piece capsule. The result is another collection of explicit accessories and ready-to-wear pieces.
“We had such a good time working on the first collection and working with the Foundation was a pleasure,” said Anderson about the second round of the capsule. “As a gay man and a designer, Tom of Finland has always fascinated me. I collect all types of art including his drawings. To be able to use them in a JW Anderson collection is so exciting. I am really proud of this year’s collection and love that we were able to expand it to include ready-to-wear.”
The collection features Tom’s man wearing leather boots, gloves, a hat and nothing else, across a slew of ready-to-wear silhouettes, including a co-branded hoodie, white T-shirt, striped button-down shirt and elongated shorts. As for the accessories, a felt tote bag and a leather baguette hand bag enlist the same motif, while a Tom of Finland-inspired keychain and and studded cap bag round out the range.
JW Anderson x Tom of Finland capsule collection will be available to shop in-stores on June 11 at the JW Anderson Soho London flagship store and online on June 14 on JW Anderson’s webstore. Customers who shop the collection at the brand’s flagship and spend £250 or more can take home a 15-inch tall Tom of Finland action figure.
