Irish designer Jonathan Anderson has caught eyes all around. His eponymous label — JW Anderson — has become synonymous with jarring design concepts that surpass innovation, recently revealing a clay-made wardrobe at London Fashion Week.

JW Anderson has enlisted English artist Bakar to front its Fall/Winter 2023 menswear campaign, seeing him get cozy in vibrant knitwear. The experimental artist dropped his sophomore album earlier this year, taking the world by storm with feel-good indie-rock tunes grounded in vulnerable lyrics.

The multi-faceted artist stands solo in JW Anderson’s seasonal designs, capturing him deep in thought on marble tables. He relaxes in fuzzy pink and green knitwear while clutching a pillow on foam boards in skintight bottoms. Finally, Bakar stands tall in a ruffled leather skirt, leaving his top half bare for all to see.

Take a closer look at JW Anderson’s FW23 menswear campaign in the gallery above.
