London Fashion Week – J.W. Anderson S/S 15

J.W Anderson

Known for his things that can be borrowed from a man to a woman and from a woman to a man signature, Anderson shook things up with a surprisingly feminine S/S 15 collection. Cummerbunds were used as outwear to cinch the waists giving the models a Dior New Look figure.

While straying from his androgynous roots there was still a hint of gender clashing with his oversized blouses and blazers.

A recurring theme in Anderson’s S/S 15 collection was nautical, although the designer himself won’t admit it. Brown leather lapels similar to boating equipment teamed the catwalk; pairing all this with a boat shoe and oversized heel completed the nautical look.

Similar to Viktor and Rolf’s seven collared shirt, Anderson crafted four-tiered ties for this collection. This S/S 15 collection is tamer than the usually minimalistic designs created by Anderson. The lack of patterns was a surprise for those of us used to seeing intense designs, with only two of the garments adorning a busy design.

Following on with the crop top trend from this spring, beautiful cropped blazers appeared showing more of the feminine physique. With his latest investment from fashion conglomerate Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, the brand has become more commercial. Some dresses in the collection are similar to Chanel’s little black dress but with an Anderson twist such as the asymmetrical sleeves.

Leather also seemed to be a common aspect for this new line which is bit daring for the spring/summer months. Make up your own mind on Anderson’s S/S 15 collection by watching the catwalk show below.
