Once again, Jonathan Anderson, designer and creator of London label JW Anderson, preferred to play on originality to present his Spring/Summer 2022 collection.

So he tapped the German photographer Juergen Teller, a big name in fashion photography, to make a series of photos of young people emerging from their teenage years taken in different rooms of a London house. These snapshots were then encased in cardboard frames, like those used to for school portraits, and sent to a list of recipients.
“A picture within a picture within a picture”, that’s how Jonathan Anderson described them.
Anderson said the reference in his mind was a throwback to his own childhood and his own upbringing in Northern Ireland in the 90s. “It was kind of going back to the beginning of JW Anderson”, he said.
Back to clothes, the collection was filled with ultra colorful clothes. On the program: oversized fleece hoodies with giant strawberries floating across them, waterproof jackets, nylon mini-shorts in very bright tones, ultra-loose sarouel-style jogging pants, thick knits but also caustically a red pillow dress strapped to the waist.
All these deliciously “childish” looks were associated, on the borderline between bad and good taste, with plastic slides and loafers in pink or blue and with sunglasses from an upcoming Persol collaboration.
