Jerry Lorezno has linked up with SSENSE to release an exclusive Fear of God capsule collection. The online retailer is offering a range of outwear, tops, and denim that features the brand's signature flannels and military-inspired outerwear like an olive colored bomber.
"I think a bomber jacket is dope. Skinheads were one of the best-dressed subcultures of the world," Lorenzo told SSENSE in an interview. "As I dug deeper I found out that the original skinheads were black kids and white kids, and it wasn’t about race. As the subculture made it over to the States, you would see them and you think: 'racist.' Learning where their style came from was the fascination."
The collection also includes staples like short sleeve and long sleeve drop-shoulder tees and asymmetrical tanks in a black and white color palette that makes them easy to layer.
"All the things that have influenced me up till now—Kurt Cobain, Iverson, my faith—practicality is also one of them. I’ve got to get up and go to the gym this morning," Lorenzo said. "Then I have a lunch meeting and some other things to do. So how is my wardrobe conducive to what lies ahead in the day? Through layering, you can look cool and be presentable for lunch meetings. But if you want to go to the gym and throw up some weights, you can still do that in thermals and shorts. It’s functional. In L.A., no one really has a real job. And no one wants to look like they have one."
