1 MONCLER JW ANDERSON: Dream in color
Designer Jonathan Anderson employs seemingly boundless creativity, an abstract sensibility, and contemporary edge, creating fashion that is direct, yet twisted, familiar and obscure, straightforward and surprising. His playful juxtaposition of contrasting elements delivers a youthful message in a deftly energetic offering. An upbeat escapism defines JW Anderson’s new collection, expressed through vibrant hues and naive, almost psychedelic patterns that swarm all over, entertaining the eye. The collection, Anderson’s third for Moncler Genius, strengthens the dialogue with Moncler’s functional and outdoorsy roots, and the idea of clothing meant to meet with the elements, while focusing on pattern, color and texture. Shapes are played down but also playful, meant to be used fluidly across genders: padded parkas with leather straps; cropped blusons; zip-up jackets; padded vests; oversized jumpers; sweatshirts, hoodies and teddy fleeces; padded miniskirts and bermudas; roomy trousers.
