SEEN at the catwalk for LFW16: J.W. Anderson SS17

J.W. Anderson presents a Tudor-inspired collection with one of the best shows seen on day 2 of the LFW.

Irish designer Jonathan Anderson presented JW Anderson’s latest collection on 17th September in London with a successful catwalk show inspired by the masculine shapes of the Tudor King, Henry VIII that have turned out an unexpectedly feminine collection.

“It’s from the Henry VIII period, but it’s part of a whole idea about relics, the idea that a woman would take something from the aggressive masculinity of a period of bygone days and be, not a warrior, but wear a shape that is very empowering,” said Jonathan Anderson.

J.W. Anderson’s unique design aesthetic offers a modern interpretation of masculinity and femininity, by creating thought-provoking silhouettes through a conscious cross-pollination between menswear and womenswear elements, challenging societal conventions on male and female dressing.

Jonathan Anderson established J.W. Anderson in 2008, when he debuted at LFW with an elaborate collection of accessories that quickly attracted attention. He’s now regarded as one of London’s most innovative and forward thinking brands.
