Interview: Jessy Heuvelink of J. Lindeberg

Amidst all of the hullabaloo of NYFW: Men’s last week, J. Lindeberg’s head of design, Jessy Heuvelink, was surprisingly calm and collected. He was even gracious enough to sit down for a chat with us the day before unveiling his latest J. Lindberg collection in a presentation at Spring Studios.

We've had a few leading men land MOTHs while wearing scarves so far: Brad Pitt, Matthew Broderick and Stanley Tucci to be specific. None of them pulled it off with quite as much rock star style and sheer aplomb as the newest addition to the club, however: actor Jared Leto.
