Runway Review

Modern elegance and refinement coursed through J.W. Anderson's Spring collection, confirming that the young designer is well on his way to earning his space as a fashion heavyweight. Black leather floppy hats infused a dramatic, yet disruptive flair to his spin on maritime. The designs were engaging and at times wearable, yet provocative enough to push the conventional expressions of fashion forward.

Wide leather waist cinchers disturbed the demure and delicate spirit of flared dresses in neutral hues with button detailing. An eccentric attitude flowed through on the uneven lapels of a short sleeve tuxedo dress, oversized earthy horn buttons punctuating a billowing-sleeve frock, and an unexpected cognac leather collar attached with dangling hemp rope accenting an easy black blouse: whimsical and a clear play on proportions.

Of the lineup, Anderson said that his pieces resembled Picasso's Cubist works and oversized black leather ties and cutouts mimicking nautical-inspired portholes definitely exuded that artful yet intricate essence. Some looks were indeed cleaner and smoother including contrast leather collar white button-front shirt and draped skirt combinations and low-rise sailor pants with a minor flare leg that were accented with their timeless button formation in the back instead of front - a treat when watching their wearers walk away though most likely on the side of being less wearable.

No seafaring-influenced collection would be complete without a few bare midriffs and stomachs were exposed in knit cotton skirt suits in black, burgundy, and royal blue.

The force and power behind this lineup has definitely increased the high hopes for J.W. Anderson's debut womenswear show for Loewe during Paris Fashion Week, as all the pieces shown here were a great sign of what's to come for the designer.
