    I have mixed feelings about this collection.

    what an interesting collection. I’ve always between curious how runway looks are translated to commercial looks. seems like there will be lots of sheer next spring!

    Silly outfits. And someone please feed the models.

    I say this with complete respect to the world of fashion. And, the photography is good.

      yes, it’s hard to look at the clothes when the models look like they are dying from under-nourishment. this is not a good standard to set.

    Very intersting collection. Sheers are delicate but with an edgy cut! I haven’t decided whether I would wear something like that or not…but it really fascinates me!

    This is SO good. First and third pieces are super inspiring.

    you need to be 100% fat free for these pieces…

    Could they look any more sad?

    A smile is still, and always will be, the single most inspiring thing to put on in the morning.

    These aren’t pieces I would wear to take my kids to school, but I have to admit it’s pure art.

      When we fail to understand, then it must be art, right? The fabrics are tantalizing but the placements are desperate.

      I guess if I were tasked to walk the runway wearing these pieces, I’d be somber too.

      • Rebecca

        September 22, 2013 at 3:55 am

        Actually I burst out laughing at the first one but I’d be miserable too if I actually had to wear it. I don’t see it as art at all – it has a purpose beyond conceptual expression, it is on a fashion runaway, it is sold as clothing and it needs to be critiqued as clothing. This website has shown me that there are people wiling to wear very sheer clothing on the street, but still I find sheer clothing disrespectful to the models wearing it – they don’t sign up for public semi-nudity do they?

    Origami fashion. Some very nice features and details indeed, probably better seen in a gallery but unfinished business as actual clothing.

  26. Elizabeth

    September 19, 2013 at 6:33 am

    In his own way it’s all nicely considered and quite pretty. He interests me and I like to see what he’s been doing which is really what you’re showing everybody when you have a show. I would have liked to have been there.

    Perfect collection for the runway but I’m not sure it would cross over to the real world very well.

  33. mo

    September 19, 2013 at 10:05 am

    I get that runways shows are part art. I get that the human form is beautiful. I appreciate the creativity of this collection. I wonder how models, getting paid work aside, feel when they see collections like this that they’ll have to sell.

  36. Pam

    September 19, 2013 at 10:45 am

    some wonderful, futuristic, origamy. I liked #2, 4 and 6. Except for the sheer, I’m getting tired of the sheer clothing… doesn’t always translate well in day to day clothing…. Some of it reminded me of Cloud Atlas futuristic clothing.

  37. Diane

    September 19, 2013 at 10:47 am

    Very Avant-garde. I’d like to see the ready to wear interpretations.

  38. K. Johnson

    September 19, 2013 at 10:52 am

    The fanciful aspect is fun but the top one looks too much like she has a hunk of flypaper on her chest!Beautiful fabrics though on all of them.

    Beautiful and completely unwearable.

    It looks like something you’d see on Project Runway. That’s not a good thing.

    They should have turned the heat up for those poor girls. The first one has goose bumps! I love all the textures and shapes though!

    September 19, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    Heavily ethereal quality these clothes have, not meant to be practical but terribly expressive…these outfits might be appropriate for a modern iteration of the movie “Barbarella” or some futuristic vision…maybe not with those shoes though. The shots are fantastic!

    A potentially interesting but apparently not fully thought-through concept meets seriously iffy execution. The people in line for the show did far better.

    I Love JW Anderson. If I was prim and proper enough not to get wine, beer, coffee, chocolate and salad dressing all over myself on a daily basis, I would wear white everyday. Sadly, I am a mucky pup and I spend a lot of time at the dry cleaners.

    Love this collection.

    This looks like a Project Runway challenge where all the outfits had to be made out of objects from a stuffy French restaurant. I see bad curtains, napkins, table linens, a mop….

    The concept is very strong and I think I see what he’s trying to say. Very depressive indeed. On the other hand, I don’t deem it’s a wearable collection, except for the third piece which is very clean and sophisticated.

    Makes me a little sad to see these beautiful women’s bodies exposed so harshly in the name of fashion.

  74. Theresa

    I wish the pieces were more finished looking. I appreciate the statement they are making, but the details of the construction turn me off…

  75. BitsofBob's

    September 21, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    This is one of the few actually progressive collections seen in years. It has the daring spirit of early Comme, Gaultier exposing the architecture of jackets in the ’80s or Westwood reminding us about the body at once sexy, animal, but alongside very self-conscious architecture and artifice. It’s dressing up box, net, string and card child-like fun meets something close to sculpture. It has more nouse than, say, so much of the recent rather pretentious, faux-outré of safe-playing Prada who are really dealing in big print and pattern on almost traditional shapes, whereas this really challenges conventional body forms and the way we cover it. Not all to be worn at once, but styled in, played with. A new philosophy here. One to watch…

    • vwilcox

      August 5, 2014 at 1:09 pm

      I agree (bitsofbob)! I’m a sculpture and mixed media artist and these are very inspiring and on the same conceptual track as my current work! I’m loving the total impracticality of these, J.W. is obviously making a statement about our “constructed environment”. It’s very architectural and yet works on the body form. Would love to see how these move on the girls.

    2, 4 & 6 are wonderful. Love the weighty shoes paired with the delicate details. Bravo

    September 21, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    Challengeing collection. White. Sheer. And exposed construction elements. Delicate drapery with sturdy footwear in contrast. I know nothing of these things but it does seem to have a bit of the future.

  79. SuddenlyIfeelOld

    September 21, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Does this designer hate women?

  80. Leah

    September 22, 2013 at 3:49 am

    To me this looks incredibly lazy craftsmanship. Someone hastily stapled random shapes in abstract-artsy way over the models, taking care not to cover the breasts too much, and waited for the fashion world to swoon.

    A case of the emperor’s new clothes if there was ever one.

    Are these things wearable on the streets? I don’t think so. At least it takes a lot courage to go out in one of #1, #2, #3, #4, #5 and #6. The constructed outfit #3 looks indeed very interesting.
