Backstage with J.W.Anderson at LFW

Coach Spring 2017.
Setting the tone for all of your favourite trends.

This weekend at London Fashion Week brought us a strong menu of imaginative collections for Spring 2017, but one of the standouts has to be what we saw from J.W.Anderson.  As always, Anderson's show was packed with adoring fans and the young designer did not disappoint.  Somehow, he always manages to straddle the spectrum of sartorial adjectives all at once - elegant and undone, editorial and street, feminine and masculine, vintage and forward-thinking.  This season was a classic take on these descriptors as the designer sent asymmetrical hemlines, utility puffer jackets, medieval-esque jumpers, and loosely tailored dresses down his runway.  It's the mark of what any good brand aspires to do - create something new, but remind us of their history.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
