J.W. Anderson delivers a collection that is fun, youthful, and far from ordinary.

The spring summer collection of J.W. Anderson was reminiscent of childhood’s innocence. The designs were fun and youthful, and so were the clean-shaven models. His use of a colorful palate, which included teal, orange, red, and yellow, indulged the audience with a feeling of euphoria.

Floral patterns, knitted dog sweaters, and paint stroke designs were embedded in the collection. Even an applique of art supplies was included in a sweater. The consistent portion of the show was seen in the loose-fitted trousers; sashes occasionally decorated the waistband.

Additional pieces that sparked viewer’s interests were the buckled shoes (featured in patent leather red/black/silver), bags made from metal frames, and extremely tightly fitted leather jackets. The one outfit that seemed to show that kids have to grow up is the double-breasted black suit.

All though a child may have dreamed these designs, the pieces alone were remarkable. They show creativity and twists on essentials like ponchos, sports shirts, and knitwear. A man who is far from ordinary will find his place in this collection.
