Combining traditional garments with contemporary style, the Fall/Winter 2018 collection from JW Anderson continues the label’s string of excellence.
Over the past few years, JW Anderson has impressed with each and every single one of its collections. Since establishing the fashion house back in 2008, Jonathan Anderson has risen to become one of fashion’s most celebrated designers.
Now residing also as the creative director for LOEWE as well, his signature touch remains prevalent on his eponymous label. Now a respected figure in the London fashion scene, JW Anderson strives to redefine traditional concepts of menswear. Touching on familiar garments and forms, JW Anderson often includes modifications that contort the shapes and patterns in unexpected ways. His iconoclast means of deconstruction throughout his vast body of work are seen as much as an homage as a critique on conventional garments.
Combining traditional style with contemporary flair, the JW Anderson Fall/Winter 2018 collection is no different. Featuring a colourful range of jackets, hoodies, T-shirts and accessories, the FW18 offering casts his critical eye on construction and pairs it will the latest textile technology, reflecting his fashion foundation that lies alongside his passion for Modernist art and craft.
Highlights from the offering include the branded Rugby Long Sleeve Polo, Duffle Coat and Embroidered Hood Logo. The Panelled Classic Shirt exemplifies the wonderful deconstruction methods central to Anderson’s design principles, whereas the simpler Multi-Stripe Jwa Print T-Shirt offers a quality spin on the classic sailor shirt.
From combining disparate materials to subtle androgynous nods towards womenswear, Anderson’s progressive spirit has been at the heart of each of his collections. The seasonal FW18 offering is one that brings Anderson’s off-kilter designs to the forefront for a sense of timeless and progressiveness.
