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.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
