In fashion, the ability to curate references and cultivate ideas from them reigns supreme. While we immediately jump to current cultural juggernauts—Virgil Abloh, Demna Gvaslia, etc.—Jonathan Anderson’s unrivaled curatorial eye need not go unmentioned. Over the past ten years Anderson’s eccentric, irreverent and quite frankly child-like collections have catapulted him into the upper echelons of the fashion sphere. Through his award winning eponymous label and celebrated overhaul of Spanish luxury leather house Loewe, Anderson’s rise has been nothing short of meteoric. While the ability to sample and reinterpret youth culture runs rampant in today’s fashion, it is Anderson’s ability to sample culture at the speed of the internet that has garnered him a rare combination of critical and financial success. Where some designers embrace culture, Anderson elevates its energy—to unexpected and fantastical results.
