JW Anderson to drop Men's Fashion Week show
The brand will offer a co-ed presentation instead
First it was the 'see now, buy now' movement and now the latest trend for brands is to present co-ed shows with yet another announcing a shake-up to its fashion week format.
Following yesterday's announcement from the CFDA that it is extending NYFW to include men's presentations across a new 10-day schedule, JW Anderson announced overnight that it is cancelling its annual Men's Fashion Week show to instead stage a co-ed presentation during women's ready-to-wear week in London in February.
The move, hot on the heels of the designer's win at The Fashion Awards 2017, comes as a surprise given the brand's show is one of the favourites on the Men's calendar. It now joins the likes of Burberry and Calvin Klein who have also shifted to this new structure.
Furthermore, as with Ellery, the brand will now only present two collections a year instead of four.
It seems as though the future of solo menswear presentations may be in doubt but for now, see Balmain's debut menswear collection for Pre-Fall '18.
