British brand J.W. Anderson released the fall-winter 2021 capsule collection developed together with New York P.P.O.W. Gallery.

The range is dedicated to the activities of the American writer, director, artist, and photographer David Wojnarowicz. In the center of the collection was his work "Burning House" (also known as "Untitled"), 1982 is a big part of the collection - designer Jonathan Anderson placed a print of a burning house on T-shirts, sweaters, and bags.

 

 

David Wojnarowicz is one of the most striking and marginal figures among American photographers. The rough life, the multifaceted interests, and the sincerity of his works still attract people's attention to the personality of the artist and his creativity. One of the main topics of his work was people rejected by society - Wojnarowicz felt on himself what it is like to be an outcast. In the late 80s, David found out that he had AIDS.

However, this did not prevent the creator from continuing his enlightening activity - in addition to art and photography, David Wojnarowicz wrote books, made clips, and also acted as an AIDS activist, declared problems of sexual minorities and openly criticized censorship.

 

 

It should be noted that the proceeds from the sale of the capsule will be directed to the Visual AIDS Foundation, which is engaged in the fight against the spread of AIDS and supports HIV-positive artists. The collection is available on the official website of J.W. Anderson.
