March 15 2017
Jonathan Anderson will be the next special guest at the 92nd edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo, scheduled from the 13th to 16th of June in Florence.
The thirty-two years old Irish designer, who is also Loewe’s creative director - the Spanish brand owned by the holding company Lvmh - will show his Spring Summer 2018 collection on the occasion of the Tuscan kermesse, for the first time in Italy, beyond the London fashion week calendar.
“We have been keeping a careful eye on Jonathan Anderson’s career for several seasons. Above all, we are drawn to the creativity and eclecticism he expresses in his collections that are further enhanced by high-quality manufacturing and - in menswear - by undisputable sartorial skill. The way he reinterprets elements from the contemporary art scene and from the youth culture, alternating emotional impact and transgression that are projected towards anticipating the future leaving little room for nostalgia, is very interesting. And his shows are always surprising, with great communicative strength.” said Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine Director of Communications and Events.
Jonathan Anderson graduated in 2005 in menswear at London college of fashion, in 2008 launched the brand J.W. Anderson and presented his womenswear capsule collection in 2010. During his working career he was honored with prestigious awards, among these the British Fashion Awards for Emerging Talent - Ready-to-Wear and the British Fashion Awards Menswear and Womenswear Designer of the Year awards in 2015. An important professional growth and a notable success thanks to the great collaboration with Versus Versace in 2013.
The label interprets a minimalist stylistic vision impregnated with strong geometric and architectural elements. And projected towards a future of a researched conceptualism.
