The Show Of J. W. Anderson
At the last show Jonathan Anderson was fascinated by the crafts — the collection is determined not so much cut and silhouettes, as a decorative finish: lace, macrame, fringe. At this time, the attention to detail has reached a new level designer plays with form, creating some of the analogues from other materials.

— says the designer before the show, showcasing a bright dress fuchsia.
The collection was very architectural and inspired Anderson the works of Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore’s noticeable in many of the images presented on the catwalk: the rounded shape, the slits in the clothes reminiscent of the holes in the famous sculptures of these authors, weave different kinds of fabrics, in harmony with the massive aksessuarami in chains-chokers.
Main outerwear in the collection also became the Cape, and particularly noteworthy is the ironic demonstration of bags in the form of caps on the head models.
