J.W.Anderson SS16

So London Fashion Week began and where was I? In my bare shell of my new flat in Winchester. I was having major FOMO and without wifi I couldn't even keep up with the shows. A rather bashful Sky electrician came round yesterday and hallelujah I have internet! I've been glued to my laptop screen for hours now, watching the shows I had missed. 

One show that stood out to me from LFW was J.W.Anderson, a designer I've never been that interested in before. Naturally, it was the structured bras that attracted me, the lingerie addict that I am. In my research I found out that Anderson's production processes were intentionally very complicated to prevent copycats, an inevitable consequence for many designers. 

Firstly, I had to include the stand out, boldly wired bra. The contrast of these designs to the lacy, cleavage-enhancing affairs that we are used to seeing is striking.

I love the squiggly print inspired by the 80s Keith Haring/Vivienne Westwood collab, even featuring in the two cross bag combination. The Leg o' Mutton sleeves bring a bold, Edwardian vibe to the look, that seems contrastingly modern.

I love sheer materials, the seduction, layering and variety. This look brings all these elements together. The sweet-wrapper sheen of the camisole brings innocence to the peek-a-boo element. And I love the draping and gathering of the black sheer trousers, exposing the lace beneath.

Sorry, I just had to include another bra! And I love the pastel underbust corset with lace-up detailing, paired with the textured pencil skirt. The colour-blocking of the skirt cleverly slims, whilst the 90s-esque metallic square-toed shoes stand out, the confused face of the blonde on the frow saying it all.

Even though I am not a girly girl and tend to shy away from pink, something about this frou-frou pastel number drew me to the look. Perhaps its the edge of the leather obi belt that deducts from the sickening sweetness of the lace. The A-line skirt again features the squiggle motif, and the appliqué appears to be stuck on by gobstoppers.

Looking at beauty, the look was very natural and dewy with a pretty blush. Brows were groomed but unfilled and the lips had a just bitten flush. The hair was pulled back into a simple ponytail, exposing the flawless skin.
