    John Lawrence Sullivan takes elements from both traditional and modern influences, reinventing normality in his own right thereafter reflected in his pieces. Sullivan’s show was at the BFC show space and with press and guests eagerly cramming their way into the event and with high expectations in mind following the result of his SS18 collection, he undoubtedly delivered.

    Trend forecasted pieces including the overcoat was taken into deeper depths of blue. All over plaid pattern overcoat paired with an electric blue shade turtle neck, thick and V shaped midnight blue woollen jumper, navy denim and a mustard pair of boots.

    The use of wool was repetitive and seen in numerous pieces. A widely-scaled collared trench, firmly resting deep purple overcoat and in plaid shirts is where the fabric layed best. There has been one look that has left its mark situated in the minds of many. Kohei for John Lawrence Sullivan. Patent black leather shoulders on the loud leopard printed woollen jacket, complimenting the shoulder panels was a matching leather pant.
