London Collections: Men - J.W. Anderson AW13
Some called JW Anderson’s collection the Marmite show of the week, opening with frilly hemmed high-waisted short shorts, boob tubes and thigh-length tunics. These gender-bending boundary-pushers certainly raised eyebrows, but look beyond them and you find some menswear classics with the JW spin. Lovely trench coats and wearable overcoats in camel, blue and pinstripe, alongside strong intarsia knits ripe for high street interpretations.
In short Anderson’s effeminate blurring of men’s and women’s wear is nothing new - remember the lace from spring 13?But among those pieces were some great items sure to fly from the shelves, even if the short shorts don’t.
