All about volumes at JW Anderson, whose hyper dimensioned collection made for an inspirational moment in London on Monday. Anderson telegraphed his idea with his invitation to his show in Yeoman House. Which featured a black photocopy of a massive spherical shaggy dress. Primitive screen printing – where the image becomes an architectural silhouette, just an outline even.
Like most of this collection, with its humungous shapes; 24-inch collars; curvaceous shoulders and exaggerated flares. Many dresses with shoulders finished with shards of antique celluloid that looked like ice, or even plastic seaweed. Which was faintly weird, but rather wonderful.
