The third fashion week began Friday in the London capital and ends tonight. Known for its extravagance, its singularity and its audacity, the London Fashion Week does not depart from the tradition. Discover without further ado four shows that have marked the spirits of this last edition, which paid tribute to one of the papesses of British fashion, Vivienne Westwood.
Since last Friday, the streets of London see the most trendy it girls of the capital, which hosts until tonight the latest collections of small and large designers. This Fashion Week of the other side of the Channel has known since its beginning a boundless craze, not only because of its originality but also because it puts forward young designers in the making.
In addition to the long-awaited show by Daniel Lee, the new artistic figure of the House of Burberry, other designers were highly anticipated by journalists, influencers and clients from around the world. Starting with Jonathan Anderson, the artistic creator of Loewe since 2013 and director of his own fashion house.
J.W Anderson : a pop and colorful universe, with a touch of provocation
The new enfant terrible of fashion, after Jean-Paul Gaultier and Alexander McQueen, is indeed Jonathan Anderson. He opened the third day of London Fashion Week by presenting his latest fall-winter 2023 collection, in collaboration with the artist Michael Clark. Since the creation of his label, the Irish designer uses clothing to evoke emotion, and sees the fabric as a canvas.
His collection consists of looks that are as futuristic as they are flashy, and the meeting of body and setting is apparent at a glance. T-shirts with trendy and pop prints blend into the background. Gone are the flowers as T-shirts: giant phallus, peace sign on fingers covered with paint or even the Coca-Cola logo, these tops are the new trademark of the designer.
The suits designed by Michael Clark and Jonathan Anderson are of a perfectly mastered geometry. We see the same models, declined in several colors such as beige, eggplant or midnight blue.
In terms of cuts, the designer oscillates between structured pieces, rounded, pleated tops, mini skirts and other silhouettes much more fluid and casual. With a touch of humor and lightness, J. Anderson continues to make the fashion world smile, with his explicit messages and unstructured cuts: XXL sleeves that almost touch the knees, fur collars similar to tentacles, sweaters with evocative prints and no shoes on the catwalk.
This latest collection is a tribute to the talent and daring of choreographer Michael Clark, who has been inspiring fashion and his talents for years: “Michael Clark is not only a choreographer of bodies, but of British culture in the broadest sense,” says JW Anderson.
