How not to look basic: The JW Anderson Resort 2016 Edit
The Irishman that's made Loewe the coolest brand to wear on the streets, and the man who's responsible for birthing a new pathway for powerful graphics, proportions and colour blocking, J.W Anderson, recently showcased his Resort 2016 collection to the world. Pushing the limits of traditional feminine silhouettes and the flow of fabrics, Anderson elevated the boundaries of a 21st century collection by captivating artistry from the 20th century. Unlike many other Resort collections, Anderson focused his theme on the cuts, lines and silhouettes as apposed to colour palettes and the fashion story itself.
Skirts had a heavy duty throughout the line, either they be rhythmically flowing or architecturally structured, particular items of the bottom wear, played reference to William Morris' infamous print. Asymmetric ruffles and polka dots were a reoccurring theme throughout the collection, signifying Anderson's traditional love of prints. The best part of it all? The lively knee high boots that can count as an art piece itself. With side ruffles and a mixture of different textures and tones, these pointed boots range from metallic space silver, to black leather and gold. Deconstructing the female body in a non linear manner, Jonathan described his collection as "kind of moving away from where we were, trying to find differences and newness".
