LFW: JW Anderson SS14








J. W. Andersons Spring 2014 collection is to die for. Inspired by Japanese trends, the collection revealed today is uniquely modern. Backstage, Jonathon Anderson explained that he ‘"wanted to juxtapose opposing fabrics; mix pleather with leather, cotton with nylon, and silk with polyester". And that he did. This mix of fabrics and materials is, for me, what makes his collection uniquely brilliant. As other designers have this season, Jonathon Anderson experimented with sheer, both black and white; certainly not a collection for the shy. The collection revealed today was unique and could be deemed experimental. Leather tees were beautifully corrugated whilst others involved origami which enabled 3D silhouettes. The collections colour palette consisted of crisp whites, sleek black, and mahogany brown. Not your conventional Spring colours, but I have to say, are right up my street. The collection revealed today has certainly cemented the young designer’s position-only in his twenties, he is an inspiration for all. Corrugated leathers, 3D silhouettes, and beautifully clean lines accurately describe J.W. Anderson’s Spring 2014 collection.
