J.W. Anderson Focuses on Fluid Dresses for Spring/Summer 2017

It was a very narrow runway show really, with the girls walking right in front of the waiting audience, so close that the dresses swished against the legs of the onlookers. During the new J.W. Anderson spring/summer 2017 runway show that appeared on the London Fashion Week, it was clear that the designer was there to address dresses in particular, playing with the silhouettes, tailoring and loosening in different places, creating symmetry and asymmetry throughout, while also experimenting with some colors.

A generally provocative designer, Jonathan Anderson has always had a thing for exploring the relationship between male and female through his creations. Through this particular collection, the tendency seems to weigh in favor of the female look, but without the overt sexualizing found elsewhere on the runways throughout these few weeks.

Having newly gotten into womenswear but 6 years back, we can easily say that Jonathan William Anderson is without a doubt one of the better up-and-coming designers in the industry who deserves every award won to date. Plus, having received praised from Donatella Versace and being compared to her brother must have really boosted the new designer’s ego 3 years back.

Today, it appears that Anderson is also putting his mark on the venerable house Loewe. The interest in the North Irish designer now well established in London revolves around the fact that he works truly hard to get to where he is, producing a lot more than most designers, while keeping each collection innovative and exciting.

He is a man willing to get out of his comfort zone and challenges the world of fashion to do so as a whole, thus increasing flexibility and the ability to create something new at all times. No one wants stale fashion, but too many designers refuse to change things around and thus end up losing market space.

Known as fashion’s “Can-Do Kid” these days, the 30-year-old designer has brought us a collection that we rather like, though find hard to fall fully in love with. It takes us out of our comfort zone for sure, by playing around with the cuts in a way that really bothers those with an OCD complex. Of course, for fashion fanatics, that is a great trait for a collection to possess.

Things are generally kept quite mellow throughout, with sudden pops of color in pinks and yellows and reds. With 43 different designs, shoulders are bared and then the necklines rise high, boots replace laced colorful shoes while it appears that a sweater is worn around the waist, black outlines appear on dresses that are rather delightful a feast for the eyes, while hemlines quite clearly fall below the knees for the most part, sometimes in an asymmetrical manner.

In general, each design differs from the other, with no particular set of trends in sight, the footwear changing by the model and the hair appearing short and long, messy or smooth, blonde or brown, side part or center, etc. It is lovely overall, but there are too few that would be most suitable to wear out in one’s everyday lifestyle.
