J.W. Anderson experimented with new proportions, shapes, suspensions, and everything in between for his Resort 2014 collection. For some, being experimental can mean doing away with pragmatics, but Anderson felt strongly about keeping this collection wearable and relatable.

The linear top half of the dress counteracts the draped bottom, which adds some length to the dress and reminds us of a strategically shredded tuxedo.
