Opening the cookbook shoot was a blue, orange and white colour-block leg-of-mutton sleeve top with bulb skirt. Issa Lish’s pewter top and trousers were festooned with circular and pocket accents, respectively. It was quasi-militaristic but maintained an odd, summery air. Wool and satin fused to create a cropped jacket. The new workwear. Striped Irish linen drill trousers were worn with the look. The following look was another toned down version of the now iconic leg-of-mutton pieces. Serving gothic Victoriana was the black leather coat with a flared hemline and cuffs. A similar gothic jacket will surely be the bestseller from this collection.
Once again, Anderson effortlessly blends the past through the point of view of a different past era. Ultimately, the output is a tremendous display of the past fused with the future. The collection was just a further example that the label is steeped in originality, pushing the unusual to the fore in a tasteful way. Ingenious.
