SPECIAL PROJECTS: JW ANDERSON @ANTONIA MILANO
Have you seen this man? The man in question is Rembrandt who looks at passersby in poster form with a pinch of defiance and insolence as part of our baby blue window display dedicated to JW Anderson and his new SS 2023 collection, unveiled yesterday in Milan. The installation, timed in conjunction with Milan Men’s Fashion Week, ends on June 22.
The British designer calls it a selfie portrait suspended between a subjective depiction and an objective one that only the viewer can tell. This dichotomy of clashing views reverberates throughout the new collection, epitomized by a handlebar, skateboard, a door hinge, and a pair of working gloves that land on the most essential of shapes: tops and sweatshirts just as they are. Why? Only the viewer can tell…
What is clear and accessible, instead, is our current in-season range and a first taste of the FW 2022-23 lineup.
