J.W. Anderson once admitted that he is obsessed with Japanese minimalism. Well there is no surprise why he used the cover-uncover Japanese technique as the main inspiration in his last collection (and not only - a bit here and a bit here), Resort 2014, described by him as the look of the "disturbed workwear". Elements that confirm this are knife pleated skirt, Möbius banding* and oversized trousers, all mixed into something harmonious, soft (clothed) and with an acquisition of natural-fluid body gesture. As usual (quite a constant in his few last collections) he used mainly monochrome palette, black, red, pure white and nude, to obtain a sort of a clinical feeling.

I am quite impressed in what direction J.W. Anderson is evolving his brand, modern and mature with a playful vibe for a woman that likes to play with formality, but in the freshest way. A great match of "utilitarianism meets a candid Japan".

* The Möbius band is a surface with only one side and only one boundary component. The Möbius strip has the mathematical property of being non-orientable. A model can easily be created by taking a paper strip and giving it a half-twist, and then joining the ends of the strip together to form a loop. In Euclidean space there are two types of Möbius strips depending on the direction of the half-twist: clockwise and counterclockwise.(wikipedia)
