Spring? Think fall. And winter! January’s annual fashion week in Paris saw major designers once again reveal the future of a couple of seasons ahead, and the John Lawrence Sullivan Autumn/Winter Collection 2012/2013 was there. Arashi Yanagawa’s trending menswear label, with its curious boxing influence, presents a sharply emphasized masculine profile, precisely cut in high quality materials like linen, silk, and velvet. The Yanagawa backstory is as bold as his line-up. Trained as a boxer in his native Japan, but always into…fashion, his four-year professional boxing career took him to championship-winning at the Japanese national level. In 2003, at age 27, he invested his last fight earnings in his first two-blazer collection, made it to the runway in 2007 for Tokyo fashion week, and hasn’t looked back. As a designer, he is entirely self-taught. His Tokyo-based JSL label is named after original American celebrity athlete John Lawrence Sullivan, first heavyweight champion of the world. And there you have it!
