毒品/VERSUS X J.W. ANDERSON

VERSUSJW1

期待著新事物的衝擊?Versace Versus最近委任了J.W. Anderson去設計他們的2013秋冬系列,然後J.W.的作品完全顛覆了Versus以往的模式。還記得嗎? 幾季前J.W.自己推出了一系列震撼的街頭服?我說,其實它們是有可穿性的。那種震撼的設計彷彿一去不往返,像是設計師要表達“我也能夠做到!”的一句短暫statement。現在,Anderson先生似乎更在意在設計上模糊性別的界線,這次和Versace Versus的合作也不例外。這種風格對於J.W.來說不是甚麼新鮮事,但是對於Versus男裝來說是個非常大膽的嘗試。通常Versus的設計會展現剛柔並重的男女形象,但是今年的Versace卻完全跳出舊框框。J.W. Anderson說要“男裝女著,女裝男著”。單看女裝系列這個主題尚且不夠鮮明,男裝呢? Whoohaa! 拍案叫絕!設計大膽卻完全不失品味。這個系列也預告了Versus的新方向:每一季都委任新的設計師。還記得Versus和Christopher Kane的合作嗎?對於挑選設計師Versace還是很有自己的一套品味。下一次又會有甚麼驚喜呢?

You want something new? Versace Versus recently commissioned J.W. Anderson to design its Fall/Winter 2013 line, and boy did J.W. turn the Versus template on its head! Remember a couple of seasons ago when J.W. freaked a collection that was a streetwear extravaganza? Wearable, I might add. Well those days seem gone for the time being, almost as if it were a tease like, ‘yeah I can do this’. Nowadays, Mr. Anderson seems very intent on blurring the lines between gender dressing. This crossover continues that train of thought. Nothing new for Mr. Anderson’s camp but boy-oh-boy, quite the left turn for the Versace man. Usually associated with an ideal of a uber-sexual man or woman, this year Versus has thrown it all out the window. “A man in a woman’s wardrobe, and a woman in a man’s”, says J.W. Anderson. With the women’s pieces, this theme doesn’t seem so apparent, but the gear for the fellas? Whoohaa! Unmistakable. Definitely to taste, the sheer adventurism of it all! This collection will also signify a new approach to the Versus line, where a new designer will come on board each season. Remember the collections with Christopher Kane? Their taste in designers has been pretty on point. Who’s got next?
