BEAUTY: Clothing--J.W. Anderson

London Collections: Men. J.W. Anderson. A minimalist, futuristic version of familiar pieces. The boxy, odd baloon-y, architectural look of this collection is appealing... at once comforting and alien.

I like the tunic sweaters, and the chunky bracelets (which, I believe, may literally be gaffer's tape rolls), but I am in love with the lace up and loafer platforms, especially in the burgundy snake skin and the two-tone brown and black! Of the shoes, Anderson says, "I love the idea that when you look at portraits in old houses, they're always positioned really high. That was the idea with the shoe—that idea of elevation. When you look at the face, you have to look up at it."
