Nope, this isn’t one of those ‘here’s six ways to style your boyfriend’s old shirt!’ kind of article, though we can’t help but to click on those anyway. But you know the hassle of following a YouTube video and fighting with your piece of fabric — no one ever gets it right, unless it’s a tangled mess you’re looking at.
Well, this one’s a little different. It’s about a British brand rethinking how we should wear a shirt, a classic wardrobe staple, and constructing it artistically into a form that’s exactly how we’d dream of wearing it. Minimal and no fuss.
In an exclusive capsule collaboration with NET-A-PORTER.COM. J.W. Anderson goes for a six-piece set that takes the crisp white and blue pinstripe shirt, now folded and draped into new forms.
“I feel the shirt is instrumental in both men’s and women’s wardrobes; it is something that really defines a brand. Being able to find a focused approach to it is something I really wanted to do for NET-A-PORTER,” says Jonathan Anderson, Creative Director and Founder of J.W. Anderson.
There’s a bodice, corset and off-shoulder top, while we’re dying for the wrap dress and knot skirt, with lines that are unbelievably clean, but with a beautifully messy twist at certain parts of the garment. Now bust out those on-trend white sneakers and shirt up.
