J W Anderson SS11

Style :

J W Anderson is, without doubt, my favorite designer during menswear day at London Fashion Week.  J W Anderson, or Jonathan Anderson, has produced some of the most creative and visually exciting shows since his debut during autumn winter 2009.  

Whilst I have similar feelings of jubilation about the other menswear designers, there is something more passionate about Anderson - maybe it might just be the models. Yet for the  spring summer 2011 show, we were warned of 'lasers' during, what can only be described as, the performance. Though whilst the odd beam of green light shone to the dismay of most, we were then wowed by the stunning sky projected during the final walk over the models - and audiences - heads. 

This collection is entitled 'The Devoured and I' which sees the intimacy and journey of two people with a contradiction of image and feeling. Think hot and cold, anger and happiness etc. The inspiration for this came from photographer William Gedney who would document the journey of two people. This intimate background to a collection is not apparent however the hallucinogenic, hippy influence is with the floral shirts, tie dye doily's and multi-coloured Swarovski crystal toed boots. The 60s/70s trend for almost psychedelic colour and patternation is on trend for this season yet I see this trend moving on for a demur autumn winter 2010.
