LFW Day 4: J.W. Anderson Spring/Summer 2012

+

Presented in the Thames-overlooking Portico rooms at Somerset House, Irish designer JW Anderson‘s second womenswear collection experimented with textures and fabrics, adding raffia to the collars of perforated leather tops; lace-up leather sleeves to striped jackets; and strapping chain mail across soft dresses.

Using a palette of earthy browns, blues, creams, and grays (which he contrasted with pops of acidic brights), Anderson mixed and matched, and, ultimately, proved why he’s acquired such a rabid cult following. Paisley-printed white shirts and gray pleated skirts even mingled with leather harnesses to create a futuristic urban uniform for the Blade Runner set.
