JW Anderson SS24 Is an Uncommon Motionless Wardrobe – The Irish designer shut down Northwest London’s Roundhouse venue, expanding his three-dimensional fascinations crafted from clay.
Jonathan Anderson‘s JW Anderson completely shut down The Roundhouse venue in Northwest London, occupied by Christopher Kane seasons prior. The Irish designer welcomed guests young and old, including a special appearance from Charlie XCX. JW Anderson’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection continued to expand on his recent fascination with cemented materials, seeing him create wearable three-dimensional sculptures taken from Barbie’s casual wardrobe.
Anderson’s seasonal inspirations started with an intricate show invite, gifting attendees a tinted block of clay to play with. The hydrated material was later transported to the runway, molded into cropped tees and folded denim shorts. Hooded motorcycle jackets donned thick-cut drawstrings for a protective experience, while frocks of feathers blew against the indoor wind on padded outerwear. Glistening beads were woven with elegance, creating pocketed dresses frozen in time. Ultra-slouchy bomber jackets moved toward the bottom half, forming bulging trousers with humorous appeal.
Elsewhere, plastic bags were used across a slew of womenswear looks, taking note of Anderson’s Spring/Summer 2023 fish dress. These were stained in primary hues and knotted at the shoulders to create a swollen effect. Trousers crinkled in movement and swung low while circular figures pulled against color-blocked dresses that erupted at the waist, completing the collection with glittered lattice skirts and twisted dresses destined for summertime.
