The Northern Irish design JW Anderson styles his latest SS22 collection in a school portrait like manner bringing out the ‘best in class’ colours. JW Anderson seeks reference and recreates elements of his own upbringing from when he used to visit his grandfather to ‘a house of childhood’.
The way that the Harry Styles, JW Anderson cardigan craze took off spontaneously on TikTok last year proved it that JW Anderson has a sweet, playful essence in his clothes, bringing it out in his SS22 collection.
JW Anderson’s collection is filled with ambiguity and adolescence; “When I was younger, we used to get our pictures taken at school and you’d get these packs of photos and frames. I liked that concept of each of the photos being able to stand on their own.”
Throwing together colourful, quirky strawberry prints and hand-knits, wind cheaters and running shorts, and diagonal-striped dresses with the unaffected randomness that is, of course, the look Gen Z’s invented for itself. - Vogue
