Style watchers are predicting authors will be the coolest people in 2015. 80 year old American author Joan Didion fronts the latest campaign for the achingly cool French luxury label Celine - no further proof needed! There is something about the written word that seems authentic and personal. And handwritten words have been cropping up in menswear shows. Raf Simons just showed hand scrawled lab coats while Michael Bastian knitted them onto a sweater. Way back during SS'15 mens season, Dior showed scribbled artwork and hand written words on classic mens shapes  (the allover look might be too much but just a sign on a shirt collar seems smart). Or one could just buy a marker and quote lines - the white shirt is as blank as a page!
