Virginia Wolf said that a mind can be either man-womanly or woman-manly. The same can be said of Jonathan Anderson’s clothes. Working his signature, JW pulled out a collection of halves; half masculine half feminine, half print, half plain co-existing in one look. Featured heavily were half skirt, half cardigan hybrids, presumably formed from the idea of wrapping a cardigan or jumper around your waist, with sleeves dangling from dresses like extra limbs! Slouchy mens trousers were styled with tabard style tops layered up with panels of contrasting fabrics and hemlines changed depending on where you were sitting cut in zigzags with sporadic fringing. Despite the chaos, the collection was far from unsure of itself. Rather, Anderson proved his ability to move effortlessly from menswear to womenswear, leaving us very curious as to which elements will reappear in Wednesday’s mens show.
