Anderson's gender-blurring aesthetics opens LC: M day2
Jan '14
Once again, the androgynous aesthetics from the Irish designer J.W Anderson were reinforced at the opening show on the second day of London Collections: Men.
Known for his trademark gender-blurring fashion sensibilities, the young talent showcased his daring experimental approach through the Autumn/Winter-2014 menswear line. The collection included floral jacquards, frilly leather blouses, cropped black trousers, sleeveless collared tops and padded-shoulder slim shirts.
After Anderson’s womenswear-inspired range, the London Royal College of Art graduate Christopher Raeburn took over the centre stage with his militia-influenced formalwear line. Based on a palette of off-white, navy blue and army green hues, the heavy on outerwear collection included re-purposed military fabric made long parkas, bombers and puffy field jackets.
English photographer John Deakin’s street photography played the source of inspiration behind British label Alexander McQueen’s latest runway presentation. Created by the company’s design head Sarah Burton, the pieces were decorated with gold lamé patchworks, lavish embroideries and Deakin’s digitally printed images.
Pre-dominantly based on sombre tones of black and grey, the collection showcased some oversized chunky sweaters as well as kilts smartly teamed up with sharply cut suit jackets and trousers.
Other than the Anderson, Raeburn and McQueen shows, the leather and knitwear specialist James Long presented a very sci-fi influenced futuristic range, including ensembles like quilted bomber jackets and mid-length coats, on the same day of the event.
