J.W. Anderson Fall 2014

J.W. Anderson is having an exciting year, with LVMH taking a stake in his business and his appointment as creative director at Loewe. I am very interested in seeing how the pressure of these successes impact his work over the next few years, but in the meantime, the new roles seem to have had a very positive effect. This collection was beautiful, innovative, interesting and looks well made – exactly what you want from a hyped young designer that everyone is watching.

I love…

that there’s lots of nice design features on this dress, but it isn’t at all overwhelming.

gorgeously simple tailoring.

I loathe…

when your tank top looks like a big crumpled mess that is falling off.

a band wrapped around your waist that makes you look shapeless. I guess this is the anti-corset.
