J.W. Anderson channels some Marc Jacobs (the person, not the brand)
for his SS13 collection

The first London Collections: Men closed yesterday evening after three days full of only London menswear fashion. It was quite amazing to see, even though I didn't really go to any shows, how excited everyone was. At the James Long show on Saturday it felt just like any other established fashion week. I loved that.
J.W. Anderson kicked off the day yesterday. He is probably the most interesting menswear London designer. I have been to his shows in the past and you know as models walk down the runway that what you're seeing has never done before.
His SS13 collection was bold. Bold as the statement that Marc Jacobs made on the runway of this year's Met Ball. In fact, Anderson showed three looks composed of a lace shirt and trousers that seemed to be the male equivalent of Jacobs' outfit – only much much better constructed.

You can see the rest of the collection and read the review here.
