JW Anderson S/S 2016
Mood board: Call them Cornelli swirls or Keith Haring squiggles but they offered a good dose of Eighties pizzazz at JW Anderson’s spring show that was otherwise obsessed with leg of mutton sleeves, balloon pants and tiny, tiny bra tops. This was a curious tale of reveal or conceal.
Best in show: Anderson’s seriously Seventies, ribbed column outfits that were skin-tight to the body, zipped up at the neck and flared in a boot cut that was tied, paper bag style, at the ankle. Beam us up cool.
Finishing touches: We’re familiar with fashion’s maxi and mini bag duo that’s especially popular with the Asian market, but Anderson was championing a new accessory look entirely with his double satchel pairing – whereby two identical, soft leather flap bags were crossed over forming pinafore-esque straps. Two for the road then.
