JW Anderson launches a capsule collection drawing inspiration from a self-portrait by Dutch master Rembrandt. The artist’s cross-hatched pen-and-ink self-portrait of himself, regarded by creative director Jonathan Anderson as “the original selfie, featured on the cover of the London luxury brand’s Menswear SS23 and Resort 23 show invitation in Milan.
Rembrandt’s self-portrait or ‘pre-selfie’ features as a print across tracksuit bottoms, crew neck vests, sweatshirts and jumpers, bucket hats and caps. Is Rembrandt’s depiction real or fictional, objective or subjective? That’s up for the wearer to decide.
The JW Anderson Rembrandt capsule collection is available online at jwanderson.com and in JW Anderson Soho, 2 Brewer St, London W1F 0SA.
