ON THe OCCAsION OF mILANo DESiGN WEeK JW AnDERsON OPENEd A POp-UP SToRE AT sLAM JaM
Art conquers the street also through Fashion thanks to the several collaborations between artists and designers. One of the latest is that of JW Anderson’s creative director – Jonathan Anderson – and the British artists’ duo Gilbert & George (Gilbert Proesch e George Passmore) that has been shouting their motto “Art for All” from East End since ’68.
Taking three 80s duo’s masterpieces – Guard plants (1980), Dog boy (1980) and Heavy (1988) – the designer, linked to the artists since his first arrival in London, created 25 pieces for 2019 Spring Summer Season: oversized leather jackets, same-like skydiving backpacks, latex T-shirt and satin shirt became new canvas for streets.
The capsule – first launched at online fashion retailer “MatchesFashion.com” – is now available also in Milan at the pop-up store opened in the streetwear temple “Slam Jam” during Design Week.
“Slam Jam represents one of the Milan menswear excellences, a retail style destination not to miss” – Anderson said
For three weeks street-wear (and street-art) lovers could buy these ready-to-wear items in addiction to the capsule collection’s accessories. So hurry up and go shopping before the pop-up store fly away to Hong Kong at I.T and to Template in Lisbon!
