Jonathan Anderson's Wackiest Designs Take Center Stage at His Debut Exhibition
Featuring a closer look at garments from his LOEWE and JW Anderson collections.
Renowned fashion designer Jonathan Anderson is known for his quirky creations and unique exploration of color, print and texture. He’s responsible for the likes of LOEWE’s balloon pumps, JW Anderson’s fish bowl dress, Wellipets frog clogs and of course: the infamous pigeon clutch. It makes perfect sense then, that the designer would soon make his exhibition debut, offering visitors an up-close and personal look at some of his most notable designs.
As a result, Anderson is joining forces with London-based art gallery Offer Waterman, debuting a solo exhibition under his new eponymous label. Titled “On Foot” and curated by Anderson, the exhibition is set to feature looks from his Spring/Summer 2023 collection, alongside sculptural garments from both brands.
The exhibition will act as an “explorational walk through its busy neighborhoods,” from Soho to Southbank. Alongside his designs, “On Foot” will feature blooming gardens, pigeon motifs and a theatrical pub, alongside the works of artists like David Hockney, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Lucian Freud.
To celebrate the new exhibition, JW Anderson is joining forces with British artist Anthea Hamilton to release an exclusive pigeon clutch, available for purchase at Offer Waterman Gallery alongside the brand’s Soho retail location.
Take a closer look at what to expect above, before the exhibition opens on September 18. Check Offer Waterman’s website for more information.
