J.W. Anderson Interprets Modern Fairy Tales for Men's Spring 2017

J.W. Anderson’s fairy-tale collection is far from the images of Disney princesses and ethereal wedding gowns that we’ve come to expect on the runway. His Men’s Spring 2017 show, held yesterday in London, was a sartorial narrative of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s famous tale of The Little Prince, which was represented though a collection of fantasy, youth and naiveté. He touched on modern tales and pop-culture references to retell the story in a fashion-forward way that would speak to both high-fashion adults and the young at heart. While a bit heavy-handed with the theme—some of his models came down the runway wearing crowns by artist Richard X. Zawitz—it was an unexpected and original way to look at popular fables.
