Following the announcement back in December that JW Anderson would relocate to Paris Fashion Week, the Northern Irish designer presented his Fall/Winter 2019 collection. The collection was a continuation of ideas first explored with the designer’s Pre-Fall collection in 2018, which took inspiration from the work ok American artist Paul Thek. The show’s setting — which spanned five rooms — was also inspired by Thek and featured original works from his The Personal Effects of the Pied Piper series.

One of the most notable features of the collection was the medieval-style headwear worn by the models. Other key pieces in the collection included chunky knitwear, oversized coats and patchwork checked shirts. The collection’s footwear featured cowhide boots as well as an expansion of Anderson’s collaboration with Converse. The new Converse shoe was an update of the Run Star Hike, which featured metallic and mechanical studs.

Speaking about the collection, Anderson explained the ideas behind it. “I thought, how do you reinterpret garments and how they should be worn? It’s the first time in a while that we have gone back to designing a men’s and women’s collection together as a continuous language. There is a kind of earthly, nomadic feel to it, where you don’t know whether it’s a beginning or an end.”
