JW Anderson's Spring 2013 line is worlds away from his collection for Topshop—specifically from the super market to the...clinic? The show was called "The Treatment Room" and there's anesthetized colors (muted yellows, rust, grey, ivory, and pinks) as well as scrub-like boxy shifts. But also, while the Topshop collection focuses on plaids and school-girl silhouettes, his RTW incorporated frilly rufflage at interesting angles. Clearly, things girls like to wear re-imagined for women is a major fault-line that connects the young designer's work. Check it out after the jump.
