J.W. Anderson Spring/Summer 2011 Show / Direct selling @ oki-ni‏

On Wednesday 22nd of September - the Men's day of London Fashion Week - Oki-ni will be streaming the J.W. Anderson 'The Devoured And I' show and directly selling exclusive show pieces. A range of items including boots with Swarovski crystal formations on the top caps; tees with hand crocheted doilies, dip dyed with neon colours; silk appliqué tees with images from William Gedney's photo archive and several accessories creatively featuring Swarovski's materials.
With 'The Devoured And I' J.W. Anderson continues his exploration of youth sub-cultures and documents the intimacy and journey of two people as they experiment and get lost in self-discovery and subsequently the fallout and consequences of this. An ongoing theme of Anderson is the apparent contradiction of our experiences, in this case the blinding colour and then darkness, the heat and cold sweat, the liberation and oppression.
