Brand: JW Anderson

Season: Men's Fall/Winter 2022 and Women's Pre-Fall 2022

Editor's Notes: Let's face it – some parties aren't to be missed. Sure, sometimes FOMO gets the best of us, and we end up staying three hours too late to a motive we could have just easily gone without, but where's the fun in not knowing? For Men's Fall/Winter 2022 and Women's Pre-Fall 2022, JW Anderson invites you to the parties that never were and the parties that will be.

You can't have JWA without a splash of flair – it's unheard of. From the shirts that will make you the center of attention to strawberry-covered knitwear and penis purses, the brand is fun; and apologetically so.

If AW22 and PF22 are to be the parties, Milan Fashion Week was the invite.

Despite being two gender-defined offerings, as remains the norm in the fashion industry, have been designed to askew the barriers of gender and taste through a celebration of hedonistic desire.

What does that mean, though? It's the sharing of looks between men and women, an interchangeable wardrobe that's about dressing up and showing out from both collections.

Far from tame, the parallel collections come complete with sequin leggings and tops, polos, metallic all in ones that feel like a time 80s capsule; the fabrications are mixed, outerwear shapes are nonsensical, and full looks feel like professional DIYs. It's clothing made up of an amalgamation of moments and memories, which is, in three words, completely mental fun.

What gives both collections such a thrill, an added layer of excitement that often feels like fashion weeks are missing, is the complete pickin' mix of ideas – why leave a graphic print polo bland when you can drown it in sequins and pair of with a miniskirt?

A littering of colorful animal graphics, ducks, orange and blue elephants across polo neck dresses, and oversized puffer jackets, and you've got the greatest party you've never been to. At this point, I'm pretty much begging for the invite. Please, JWA.
