One of the industry’s most feted young designers, J.W Anderson is internationally heralded as an important and original designer. J.W. Anderson launched his progressive and conceptually provocative womenswear line in 2010, after studying menswear at the London College of Fashion. Now one of the fastest rising talents in British fashion, Anderson serves as creative director of LOEWE while continuing to challenge norms with his own line. Avant-garde geometric forms and gender-fluid borrowings have become a signature: asymmetric dresses, off-shoulder blouses, dimensional skirts, and minimalist shirting are quirked up with knotted accents and eccentric prints. Fine leather handbags featuring signature half-moon cutout constructions lend a final touch of artistry to Anderson’s novel vision.
Roughly crinkled nylon is gathered with stripes of smocking to add another layer of texture to this avant garde skirt. A high, nipped-in waist and perfectly short silhouette lend classic feminine charm to the look, while all-around zippers provide an edgy foil.
