Step into JW Anderson and Tom of Finland’s homo-wonderland, and more news
Frank Ocean drops a $500k necklace, and Diesel unbolts the doors to its next fashion show
Swollen nipples, buxom pecs, and weighty jock-strapped bulges make up JW Anderson’s latest capsule collection. The third in a collaborative series with Tom of Finland – whose kitsch-kink illustrations incubated gay culture as we know it – the offering comprises vests, fanny packs, and bum-baring underwear. Not capable of drawing without an erection, Tom spilt his fantasies of a homo-wonderland onto the page, the humongous smiles of his protagonists matched only by their pendulous appendages, which art writer Camille Paglia deftly described as “flaunted, mammoth phalli, thick and fibrous, like serpentine vines or trees, brimming with sap”.
