Aside from their involvement in revolutionising Golf fashion, the J.Lindeberg company originally founded by Johan Lindeberg (formally of Diesel and BLK DNM) have steadily built an international brand that bridges fashion and function. The quietly rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic has been something of a mainstay for the company which has seen collections that has been heavy on slim fits, tailored jackets and high end denim. For Spring 2016 head designer Jessy Heuvelink presented a 70’s cowboy inspired collection that stayed close to the brands roots.
After roughly ten years in the company, half of which as head designer, Jessy has developed the brand on the global scene and his affection for leather shone through with the stand out suede pieces. The colours and prints from Spring/Summer 2015 have been toned down with more natural and earthy colours of navy, grey and shades of green and brown being used throughout. Silk scarves doubled as ties and gave the looks subtle androgyny which is very on trend for the season. The jacket in black and brown options came across as a hybrid piece with a classic denim trucker cut, stylised in suede with fringed sleeves to complete the “Midnight Cowboy” look.
In a season that has seen a resurgence of straight and relaxed fitting pieces, J. Lindeberg keep things slim and on brand with both suits and denim embracing the skinny look which could serve them well when the pieces hit retail in 2016.
