Preview J W Anderson’s second line for Topshop

Posted on

Jonathan ‘J W’ Anderson’s bat sweater produced for Topshop, and as seen on Alexa Chung among others, was one of the highlights of 2012’s street style, in a year stuffed with high-fashion/fast-fashion collaborations.

His latest Spring-Summer 2013 collection for the British high-street retailler is an evolution of the kilt and tartan influences in last year’s smash success. 

This latest collection is “more about youth cultural groups” according to Anderson. “The girl has evolved. It’s about carrying over the idea of iconic pieces that can be worn over and over and re-working staple looks from the JW Anderson wardrobe,” he added. 

The designer’s favorite pieces? The argyle twinsets. “It’s about a twist on basics and about reaffirming the J W Anderson silhouette, with a slight element of kink.”

So will the 28-year-old designer be returning for another bite of the apple come fall 2013? Sadly not, he says: “this is our last chapter. It was always laid out as a 2 part story.”

J W Anderson for Topshop is set to hit Topshop stores (including the recently announced Los Angeles flagship) on February 15.
