Recipient of the ‘Emerging Talent’ award at the British Fashion Awards, Irish-born designer Jonathan Anderson of the JW Anderson brand, is a name we just keep hearing more and more of. His men and womenswear collections are being talked about with great excitement and among his admirers are the likes of style icon Alexa Chung and model Daisy Lowe. Androgynous is the word that springs to my mind when I look at his work. Personally, I love that boy/girl crossover in fashion and although his Mens Autumn13 collection (Check it out here and see what you think?) might be just a tad outrageous for any of the men in my life (who would be more along the lines of Jonathan’s dad, former Irish rugby international, Willie Anderson) it is definitely a reminder that fashion is constantly evolving and that undisrupted creativity brings us to new places…… You have to love that! The JW Anderson label can be found in fashion houses like Dover Street Market, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Browns and Net-A-Porter.
The good news is that, thanks to Topshop, Jonathan’s designs are also available on the high street. His second collection for Topshop will be launched on 15th February and I for one will be there to check out, among other things, those amazing platform loafers.
