One of the only few proposal presented online on Milan Fashion Week
If this collection would had been shown live on planned-evening in Milan-and the after-party Jonathan Anderson envisaged gone ahead too-it would have both enhanced and disrupted this season’s menswear week. Because Omicron restrictions, his Milan debut was posponed until June and the event was presented online, being one of the only few brands to not walk the catwalk. JW Anderson’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection, however, knew how to captivate the public throwing away the boundaries of gender norms when it comes to clothing and making a gender-neutral collection.
Anderson took typically feminine silhouettes and clothing styles, from dresses to short blouses, including increasingly trendy low-waisted jeans, and transformed them to accentuate the features of anyone who chooses to wear them. An interesting part of this collection was the swooping, almost hoop-like cut of some of the short tops and dresses. Anderson played a lot with shape in this collection by creating chain shaped detailing on knit tops or giving dresses and skirts a ruffled edge. While black was stablished as the main tone, Anderson also incorporated different neons and metallics colors for an unexpected pop of color, bringing with it a little bit of liveliness to a proposal full of extravaganza and jouthfulnes.
