The British designer Jonathan William Anderson launched his men's ready-to-wear in 2008, followed by women's collections in 2010.

He builds his silhouettes like collages of shapes, colours, materials and accessories. These superimposed elements create a curious mixture giving rise to a sophistication and harmony that make the creator's signature. This silhouette is the creator's first donation to the Palais Galliera, illustrating his artistic identity. Inspired by the costumes of the Elizabethan period, the sweater made of complex striped knitwear has its collar and cuffs inflated by cotton wool tubes like tires. The skirt made of jacquard knit skittles is more supple. A single earring consists of small silver metal bells while the shoes form a new kind of richlieus, consisting of a brushed resin heel like a designer chair foot and a leather braid upper.
