JW Anderson collaborate with Tom of Finland on new collection with a bit of cheek

The expanded collection includes illustrated accessories plus a t-shirt, hoodie, shirt and shorts

Designer JW Anderson’s eponymous brand has always been intertwined with the queer community.

His Autumn/Winter 2016 show was even streamed on Grindr. (After all, why not watch a fashion show before you attend to that hangover horn on a Sunday morning?)

Now, J Dubs - as the brand is playfully known in the fashion industry - have revisited an insanely popular, queer capsule collection for the second year in a row, collaborating with Tom of Finland.

Their 2020 collaboration was such a success (it literally sold out) that they’ve decided to go at it again.

The collection has been expanded, with a t-shirt, hoodie, shirt and shorts, all with the infamous homoerotic illustrations from Tom Of Finland, full of our favourite leather caps, boots and bulges, that we know and love from the illustrator.

There are also accessories including a tote and baguette bag and some provocative phallic key rings, that are studded and pierced for your key’s pleasure.

After all, what more could you possibly ask for, than a muscle leather daddy illustration splashed across your clothes?



The JW Anderson x Tom of Finland capsule is available exclusively at and with partners SSENSE and CULTUREEDIT.

The collection will be available exclusively at JW Anderson’s Soho London store from 11 June and online from 14 June. For more information, visit
