London Fashion Week: J.W. Anderson Spring/Summer 16

A woman’s odyssey


For Spring/Summer 16 J.W. Anderson explores the idea of “Olympics, galactic” in a collection that sits somewhere between boudoir lace and oversized powerful prints. Explore the collection in detail here…

J.W. Anderson knows just how to get our attention with larger than life designs. For his Spring/Summer 16 collection shown at London Fashion Week, Anderson said his show was based on "the idea of a woman's odyssey – Olympics, galactic" and with Fran Lebowitz musing about art and more on the soundtrack, plucked from a 2010 Martin Scorsese documentary, his designs came to life on the catwalk. 

Balancing a skimpy wire bra and pencil skirt look against big leg-of-mutton sleeves pared with printed balloon pants, Anderson's Spring/Summer 16 collection sat somewhere between boudoir lace and oversized powerful prints. 

Amongst the collection were slip dresses that came in the form of crinkly and wet-look fabrics and gauzy sheer numbers. Juxtaposing the dainty lingerie inspired looks, Anderson paraded outfits that felt like he had taken a uniform approach to dressing out onto the catwalk featuring balloon pants in leather and coated cotton, pared with the show-stopping leg-of-mutton sleeve tops. 

Details came in the form of lasagna ruffles, contrast stitching and knotted details which sat at the wrist and ankles of various looks, adding a fit and flare element to sleeve and pant leg openings.
