Everything from the cream carpet to the strategically positioned house plants had been carefully curated inside this extraordinary venue, the UNESCO building. Guests took their seats on a series of carefully placed concrete and perspex boxes - some sprayed gold, some Yves Klein blue, others transparent and containing hundreds of household items: disposable razors, wire wool, light bulbs.
Curation was a fixation for Anderson, speaking backstage after the show. "I feel like that's what we do with our lives, we curate them. All the jewellery had been curated, each look curated. It was about putting the woman in a new environment, both out of body and out of mind." Jewellery played a pivotal role in tying looks together, as it has elsewhere this season, and took on totemic qualities. Life-size cat’s head necklaces in perspex resin and hand-painted nappa leather bore resemblance to depictions of the ancient Egyptian goddess Bastet, while a gold hand brooch clutching on the hem of a khaki jacket recalled Victorian mourning jewellery. The leather cats were clever: hollow vessels, they comprise the new Joyce bag. The other big-ticket leather item this season was the Amazona in a new multi-pocket variation, the bottom of the bag left unzipped and gaping open.
Each look had a carefully controlled sense of exuberance: Anderson was playing with handkerchief hemlines and knife-pleated skirts, contrasting shaggy knitwear and shaggy leather fringing with chainmail sleeves and raw-edged hems, loosening up the futurism that often defines his silhouette.
