“A menswear collection inspired by the anti-heroes within society. We all celebrate the heroes of the world but what about the underdog? The ones who face fears each day tackling the unknown troubles of the world. The ones who stand up for whatever the cause. Buy a ticket and join the ride of the anti-hero.”
Jessica Anderson’s graduate collection gives military clothing a crazy twist. MOLLE pouches, hydration packs, utility bags and utilitarian detailing are subjected to a blast of colour and print from the mind of Hunter S Thompson. Anderson’s interest comic book art is a clear influence as is her reflection on the brands Carhartt and Stone Island, but the collection is very much her own
“for my final collection I wanted to represent ‘who is Jessica Anderson’”.
Her diffusion line, Choose Life, is s non-binary collection inspired by the film Trainspotting, incorporating heavy-duty workwear and vibrant colour from Madchester raves.
Anderson has three years’ experience working in fashion.
