“We honed in on different proportions…to find something new in men’s wear, you have to go further to reduce, and go further again to try to redefine a silhouette,” said designer Jonathan Anderson. The show notes cited an “obsessive dissection of modern geometry,” and the collection was concise, considered and tightly wrought in both concept and execution.
Lines worked perfectly with the contours of the body, and the overall effect was organic as one look flowed effortlessly into the next. Anderson’s core offering was a tunic in Neoprene or leather in a palette of black, white and beige — with flashes of red — worn over plain black trousers. Tunics had details such as apron pockets, asymmetric overlays, fins at the side, bows at the front and Anderson’s signature slinglike armbands.
