JW ANDERSON MEN’S SS 23 & WOMEN’S RESORT 23
By Crash redaction
In the JW Anderson Men’s Spring Summer 2023 & Women’s Resort 23 collection items of clothing meet and crash with non wearable objects. Out of this clash, fashions in fragments arise. The clash is literally a clash: a handlebar, a skateboard, a door hinge, a pair of working gloves land on tops and sweatshirts just as they are. Shapes are essential to the point of banality: the t-shirt, the sweatshirt, the Bermudas, the dress, the jean jacket, the five pocket trousers, the bomber, the tailored double breasted blazer, the tank top, the parka. Because of the clash, their objectivity becomes defiant and utterly subjective, like a barcode peeking through a slash, or a closure that goes askew. All of it grounded on shoes with maximized soles and details, and colorful bags.
