Cult fashion creative J.W.Anderson has recently collaborated with British photographer and i-D affiliate Alasdair Mclellan as part of J.W.Anderson’s frequent Shoreditch Workshop events. Mclellan is set to completely take over the Shoreditch retail-store-come-gallery-space, immersing it in custom installations and light box displays as well as producing a limited-edition series of 100 posters. These art works include Mclellan’s signature works of nude men and cloudscapes sold at £35 each. Similarly, these images will also be printed onto a range of t-shirts which, alongside the original posters, will launch just two days into this year’s London Fashion Week Men’s event, with the release date confirmed to be on Sunday 8th January at 6pm (priced at £125). The entire collaboration will be available for pre-order on the J.W.Anderson website from the same date.

The latest Anderson-photographer collaboration is hardly a new venture for the Irish born designer, but rather a new notch on the belt of previous collaborations, which have ranged from photographers such as Larry Clark to Steven Meisel. The release of Anderson’s new project will coincide with his upcoming AW17 Menswear show on Sunday at 10am.

Both the posters and t-shirts will be available for purchase on the J.W.Anderson website.
