J.W. Anderson for Sunspel


Updating the iconic English menswear house, Jonathan Anderson continues Sunspel's respect for the past while embracing the future. Anderson has been involved in the brand's creative process doing consulting since 2008 while working on his own line. "I am a huge fan of Sunspel and it's a great honour to work with the label. Sunspel have their own factory in Long Eaton and as a designer its fantastic to have direct contact with the closely-knit team of technicians- their experience is invaluable." Anderson graduated from London College of Fashion in 2005, debuted his line at London Fashion Week in 2008 and continues to run his own London-based fashion label. Anderson's take on Sunspel classics (consisting of underwear, boxer shorts, T shirts and Polos) has given the brand a new look by bringing back manufacturing processes used in 1954 and adding his own twist--note the Oxford pocket T shirts.
