J.W. Anderson: Ready-to-wear AW16

There’s never really a press release at J.W. Anderson, usually all he gives you as a starting point is a quote. This time the quote came courtesy of David Hicks, “the excitement of today is the freedom of the individual to make his own choice and the last range of possibilities from which he may choose”. So what was the collection like? A series of go faster striped ruffles sticking out from hem lines, almost Elephant Man head, bulbous structures, that were more likely inspired by something in nature. There was a bounce to this. Imagine an updated Judy Jetson turned intergalactic rave queen. There’s a trekkiness to this, there always is. A sense of otherworldliness and this was no different.
