The color and the tissue of the clothing are amazing!

interesting shoes! :)

Really so interesting and I like that shoes.
Beautiful shoots! :)

je ne peux pas décider ces chaussures sont futuristes ou historiquement inspiré;en tous cas j’aime les jupes!

yes modern – but fresh? i get the references but the pieces look “weighted” and uneasy. even the models look a little sad wearing them. there must be massive pressure for a designer to come up with something new but for me this just doesn’t feel good.

“Uneasy” was exactly the word that came to mind, however; this is possibly JWA most wearable collection to date. It still doesn’t convince me though, I can’t remove from my memory his previous collection which were nothing but meaningless art pieces verging on total trollop. I’m happy to see that not the entire fashion industry are doggedly trying to convince themselves that JWA produces visually pleasing and commercially viable collections; I salute Maya Singer of style.com for being honest in almost brutally bagging the crap out of this collection:
Perhaps LVMH group want their funding used in a more profitable way rather than sending models down the runway with ragged sheer fabric covering their breasts because, as I mentioned before, the majority of this collection seems to be wearable. Can’t wait to see what everyone else thinks of this collection, it seems a departure from previous JWA shows.

Beautiful forms! The blue sweater is gorgeous.
February 16, 2014 at 11:34 am
one way or the other it will translate into something totally wearable

Some of the models look exhausted and unwell…is that a purposeful designer makeup strategy?

As I said earlier: it’s a beautifully sculpted collection, and people can argue it’s too artistic, or like the style.com review, too detached from the female form. It’s very Comme. But I agree that the models look borderline to starvation and the neck crests somehow aid the impression that it’s a ward of sick folks running down the catwalk.

JWA has such a sense for sculpture and structure, fabric and texture. It’s always artistic, what he does. Really not in the over the top way, but in a minimalistic, but not boring way. Could be mistaken for some Comme collections by Rei K though.

All of these oversized, angular shapes going on for autumn/winter. I dunno how I feel about them because it’s best left served by certain designers only. That said, this feels like a conservative line for JW Anderson.

I like the construction and folds of the black and grey skirts that I would wear with something fitted and simpler. I’d wear the flat crème colored shoes as well.

The cuts are amazing! This collection is so original!

I find these pieces conceptually intriguing–the way he’s used gathering, pleating, and the like to create structure is very cool, particularly in the last 2 skirts. I don’t find the finished products all that aesthetically pleasing, but I can definitely see the techniques filtering out into more “accessible” lines to good effect!

I love the shoe designs (though not the colours), but the clothes look like someone grabbed some cloth (that first one looks like terry cloth/cheap towel cloth) pinned it almost randomly on a mannequin and waved it away as a finished design to be made up by the sewing department. When clothes make models look fat and ugly…you know it’s going to be bad for the average fashionista.
February 16, 2014 at 4:57 pm
Not exactly my style, but loving how soft the fabrics look!
February 16, 2014 at 5:28 pm
Love the structure and shape of this collection!
February 16, 2014 at 7:54 pm
First dress for Miley Cyrus, do you agree?
February 17, 2014 at 2:52 am
Great color and shapes. Although I love the shoes from the third and fourth pictures, I’m not sure if this collection is about clothes or women anymore. The models don’t wear clothes but sculpture and architecture pieces.
February 17, 2014 at 3:24 am
The garments are good, but those shoes are just weird!
February 17, 2014 at 6:26 am
I would not be buried in any of these.
February 17, 2014 at 9:08 am
Those shoes on model UNO are fresh.
February 17, 2014 at 10:41 am
I love the colors, don’t find the forms very accessible. Agree with a previous comment about models looking unwell.
February 17, 2014 at 12:58 pm
There are too many ugly things in this world, so I don’t understand why fashion has to be ugly, too. This collection is ugly.

Would love to own the grey skirt. Would wear with the Addidas worn by the third blonde of London with mobile phone and light, comfy sweater. But on second thought, my legs are not long enough for the skirt. Another lifetime.

Poor girl they are soooo skinny!
February 17, 2014 at 4:50 pm
Awwww … these sculptural shoes …
February 18, 2014 at 6:37 pm
These clothes don’t look like the product of a knowledgeable craftsperson but maybe that is the point. It looks like an artist deliberately taking the wrong fabrics and folding and twisting them and then sewing them down until a vaguely recognizable, wearable form occurs.

Nothing at all attractive here
Sometimes I imagine these designers sitting around behind the scenes laughing derisively at the public female… “Let’s see if we can get them to wear THIS clown costume! Har har har!”
February 19, 2014 at 12:44 pm
I totally love this deconstruction! It is quite mesmerizing for real.
