Sophisticated, young, put-together from top to toe with an offhand aplomb: Jonathan Anderson has hit a stride with his J.W.Anderson collection, which really needs no more explanation than just looking at it. “Über-feminine,” he called it, gesturing toward the sequence of photographs of his lineup backstage. Each exit, he pointed out, was “one look, one idea, clearly inked.”
Anderson described the collection as a style odyssey. “You have this idea of something that is uberfeminine, but at the same time it can crash, and then it kind of builds itself up again. It’s this idea of stripping it right back to an outline silhouette — something very reduced – and then you start to build it up again,” the designer said backstage to describe the sleek looks done in materials such as fur, leather, nylon and silk.
