London Fashion Week: J W Anderson autumn/winter 2010/11 collection

Style : As the second of four of the Topman sponsored NEWGENMEN designers, J W Anderson produced a storming collection that seemingly had heavy punk and Rock 'a' Billy influences.

However, according to his show blurb, Jonathan Anderson did not take influence from history or cultural references, it was simply his friends, family and lovers. And what super cool people they must be.

One consistent feature in the show were belts around the neck, in shades of chocolate and black, and hearts on t-shirts and horn broaches, which may be a reference to his lovers. Non-the-less, it was a touch that seemed to perfect the looks entirely.

Red tartan featured heavily in Anderson's offering, with trousers, tasselled short coats and biker jackets being the main items to take note of. Other outerwear included oversized trenches and loop back jersey and camel cashmere fused to look like shearling.

Ripped slim legged jeans were intricately deconstructed, and the street-to-catwalk trend of rolled-up trousers were apparent, worn with studded hiking boots. To complete the 'highland fling' aesthetic, a series of camping bags and small packs, one packed full of flowers, were teamed with fisherman knits and cardigans – complete with a silk mesh covering – gave the image of warmth and romanticism that Anderson has taken inspiration from.

One last note has to be the impressive roster of models, which were featured within the press seating pack. Many were from well known agencies such as FM, Models 1 and Premier, a couple were street cast. However, J W Anderson gets double Fashion Week points for having male model du jour Jacob Coupe gracing his runway.
