Jonathan “J.W.” Anderson took inspiration from his own childhood for his Spring/Summer 2017 menswear collection. He first teased the collection on social media with a picture of the cover of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince to his Instagram account, a cryptic clue to his influences. The book apparently made a huge impact on Anderson’s youth and upbringing, which he translated for fashionable men today. Models walked down the runway with broken, beaded crowns as a direct homage to the iconic book, while the character’s resemblance to J.W. Anderson himself was evident – the designer is often referred to as the prince of fashion within London’s high-end scene.

Anderson’s clothes were attention-grabbing, simple but extravagant, and cut from a range of various fabrics and made into oversized and cropped styles. Men wore dresses (another nod to the androgynous trend) while carrying handbags. Models strut down the runway in large goggles that are sure to be a must-have accessory for fashion insiders. Anderson noted that the show was “not about being nostalgic, it’s about being childlike,” and there was an air of dressing up with wide silhouettes and ill-fitting styles. There were heavy graphic nods to recognizable art styles, but also a mix of strong staple pieces that will do well in a man’s wardrobe.
