London Collections: Men - JW Anderson Spring 14
One of the most talked about shows at LCM, but the topic was skinny models rather than clothes.
Fabrics Lace, silk-lined sponge, fine sheers.
Items Halternecks, sheer tank tops, wide-leg baggy trousers, heavily constructed long-line tops, complete with arm-restraints and the odd high-neck.
Themes It’s safe to say JW Anderson has become a theme unto himself.
In short It seems every season JW Anderson’s menswear is discussed as a ‘love or loathe’ show. We’ve moved on from boob tubes to halter tops at least, but it still doesn’t mean men will wear it. His skill and imagination are obvious, but work much better with womenswear.
