J.W. Anderson | LFW SS 17
Once again, Jonathan Anderson packed his London Fashion Week audience onto narrow benches set in narrow corridors — the walls painted palm green and the lights overhead coaxing sweat.
Models in long, torso-skimming dresses whisked through the venue, their handkerchief hems lapping at the knees of editors, and guests that included Tory Burch, Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo and Anderson’s family. Sunset colors — erupting in striking dégradé or blotches across meaty, natural linens — heightened the summery vibe.
“I wanted something a bit more grounded, a bit more fluid. A bit solar. Something calm,” the designer said backstage. “And I just wanted something that was a bit girly again.”
