For the fall 2010 season, J.W. Anderson’s more graceful approach to menswear is at odds with an imaginative rebellious faction. Inspired by “saints or assassins with a cross-country paramilitary vibe”, Anderson pulls from varied references including his Irish heritage. The result are constrasting elements that can be interpreted in several ways. For instance, the romantic idea of countryside plaid is understated with subdued colors and a semi-traditional cut before going the way of a punk aesthetic with a vibrant red and more modern cuts. From stern dark suiting and bold wraps to the quaint cardigan, J.W. Anderson layers this season’s collection with excitement and unexpectedness.
