Just a site for some crazy little things, but we do like.
According to our article “what a coincidence“, The Versus’s project is another interesting collaboration that we are looking for. Now, Versus revealed that the first project by next March 2013 will be joined with British veteran designer JONATHAN ANDERSON – also known as JW Anderson – whom will create a capsule collection f, the first in a series of designer collaborations that will work towards the repositioning of the brand. After Christopher Kane announced the parted ways with the label earlier this month, having held the role of creative director since 2009.

JW Anderson is one of the designer that I follow on instagram, @jw_anderson. So, I feel so happy. I really adore his works especially his vision. He is really different from others not only in London but also worldwide. If he could build up more credential earlier than Christopher Kane, he will be a very good candidate for Balenciaga because I found some relative points from Nicholas and Jonathan on their design, choice of selection fabric, silhouette or styling approach. Other things, I have gained the trust in Versace’s scouting team for projecting a very interesting choice of collaboration, very fresh.

“I saw his first men’s collection in 2008 and right away I was impressed,” Donatella Versace told Vogue.co.uk “I felt the same way about his women’s collection. I saw something different in what he was doing, a real desire to push forward. I think Jonathan is a perfect fit for this inaugural capsule collection. In addition to being a talented designer, he’s well versed with the new digital world and is, therefore, an ideal partner for our new direction.”
Anderson’s Versus range, which will be unveiled at a New York presentation in March or April next year, is set to include men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, as well as accessories. The collection will be sold online at leading international department stores.
“I pride myself in being open to new ideas and approaches – not just in fashion, but in art, music and technology,” added Versace. “Working and exchanging ideas with young talented people makes you realise where culture stands today and gives you an understanding of and dialogue about what the next thing to come is going to be and what is the future fashion language.”
The Irish-born designer launched his label, JW Anderson, in 2008 with menswear – before introducing womenswear for autumn/winter 2011-12. He released his debut high street line for Topshop in September this year and a second offering is due to land in stores in early 2013.
