LONDON–The Big Smoke is such an exciting place for fashion right now, and Jonathan Anderson is one of the reasons.
The young designer showed his women’s collection today at Somerset House, the unofficial headquarters of London Fashion Week. It was the first time he has showed women’s separately from men’s.
And it was the right choice, as it gave Anderson more room to do less-androgynous pieces. Last season his girl was a grunge magpie, wearing Liberty prints and patchwork sweaters. This season, she’s a tough ’90s schoolgirl in mohair sweaters and work boots adorned with tufts of pink, blue or white fur.
