Fashionstias, consider this your early Christmas present: JW Anderson has collaborated with everyone’s favourite aficionados of Turkish food, Gilbert & George. Oh, and the partnership has been captured on camera by Alasdair McLellan. Think of it as a contemporary take on gold, frankincense and myrrh for that friend of yours who takes nice trousers very, very seriously.
The collection includes a series of jackets, shirts, bags, and tunics all inspired by some of the pair’s 80s work. Pair a jacket with one of those Mike Kelley t-shirts that Supreme dropped a couple of weeks back and there won’t be a single passer-by on the planet who isn’t aware of how much you love both contemporary art and clothes. You’ll be the talk of the college canteen — we guarantee it.
Talking to style bible i-D, Gilbert & George collectively say, “We love that people who are half or a third of our age can find us crazy and inspirational. We always love to see our art going out in the world in many ways. ART FOR ALL!”
Alasdair’s — who we last featured on It’s Nice That after he shot legendary French filmmaker Agnes Varda — photos create an intriguing world, which is part Tom of Finland, part cosy country pub.
The heritage-referencing capsule collection is available as of now on Matches Fashion. It will be accompanied by a publication entitled The Pleasure Book for Boys with JW Anderson and Gilbert & George later this month.
