After his pre-fall 2015 women´s-wear collection, J.W. Anderson´s idea-reinterpretation of the 60´s and the 70´s continues also in his menswear F/W 2015/2016; actually looks like his man borrowed clothes from his woman´s wardrobe. The apparently awkward-typical (already a trademark) Anderson style is to translate his womenswear collection into a menswear one or vice-versa.  We got the first option this time.There was almost the same slim-leather trench-coat with maxi-jewel buttons (present also on a terry-cotton and other coats), high-wasted dress pants with a side slit (made on purpose, to get a French shirt cuffs flare), second-skin turtlenecks and short shearling, bomber-like jackets. The add of shirts with non-proportionally (on purpose-made) collars and cuffs, color-blocked knitwear and maxi, fringed scarves, elevated the drama-level straight up.  If the first in-between show reaction was like a “wtf-thing” (bulging eyes included), is not (really) surprisingly odd, that the collection gets you more and more and more and at the end is just pure love.
