In the next season, Jonathan Anderson suggests continuing to experiment with clay (at the time of writing, we still don’t know what he made the shorts and hoodie out of). The spring-summer show opened with several looks made of a material that imitated plasticine and they all looked very natural. Because the? A problem with an asterisk, the answer to which lies in childhood. The clay, invented in 1987 by William Harbutt, is still produced in Northern Ireland, where the designer was born. It thus became the symbol of a collection in which Anderson attempts to return to the youthful energy of his own brand. “It was a kind of going back to find a new path,” he concluded.
In the line we also saw knit and crinoline dresses, cargo with huge pockets, puffy T-shirts and low-waisted pants in fluorescent blue, orange, yellow and chocolate. There was also a place for airy translucent and bomber dresses with loose feathers, trench coats with “skirts” and hooded blouses. Anderson highly recommends wearing all of the above with fishing sandals and knit slippers with open and/or closed heels.
