JW Anderson's FW20 Collection Explored Volumes and Movement
Come backstage at the designer’s London Fashion Week show.
London Fashion Week has just come to an end, and one of the most anticipated shows on the London schedule each season is Jonathan Anderson‘s eponymous label JW Anderson. For Fall/Winter 2020, the designer took a new approach to his collection, debuting a total of 41 looks which explored everything from volumes and movement, to texture, silhouettes and more.
Utilizing new materials including metallic fibres to create exaggerated gowns, Anderson strayed away from the conventional and created a collection inspired by his own creativity and vision. “I was playing with a mixture of fabrics at the studio. Some we have used before and some new and it came together in a sort of collage,” said the designer, adding, “I like this odd, modular shape that we constructed out of circular knits.” The collection featured iridescent silk, giving an illusion of a liquid satin, as well as massive and exaggerated coats boasting a big leather lapel.
As for accessories, the chains we saw at JW Anderson’s Fall/Winter 2020 Menswear show earlier this year were present throughout the collection, sat atop both shoes as well as bags. The designer also debuted a new bag silhouette, taking on the shape of a punching bag. The collection showcased Jonathan Anderson’s talent as a designer, and the crowd applauded and cheered as the creative took his bow.
