The J.W. Anderson SS 2015 collection continues the brand's commitment to gender bending.

Presented at the London Collection, the line urges fashion consumers to leave their pre-conceived notions about how men and women are supposed to dress at the door. The line is comprised of silk blouses, off-the-shoulder sweaters and cropped knits. Knitwear pops up again the form of a fisherman's style knit tank top, a stand-out piece to say the least. These unconventional silhouettes are offset by more traditional pieces and cuts, such as raw-edged jackets and colored blocked shirts in pastel hues of cornflower blue and blushing rose.

Collections such as J.W. Anderson's are very important (and appreciated) as ideas and definitions of gender continue to change and expand. The collection serves as a contribution to the conversation about gender. Stats for Gender Bending Collections Trending: Older & Popular
