J.W. Anderson campaign image becomes postage stamps

Apr 13, 2016

Life is imitating art for J. W. Anderson, the British designer. His innovative SS16 campaign featured images that were based on a postage stamp and placed into white space to scale.

Now, fashion-interested philatelists can get their hands on the real deal, as the campaign images have been made into stamps with actual postage value that collectors can buy. A book of ten stamps costs $21.

If used for postage purposes - though it seems a shame to send them off - the accompanying stamp must be included to hold UK 1st class value. The stamps will be exclusively available at Workshops, J.W. Anderson's Shoreditch space that hosts constantly changing installations, including exhibitions and exclusive products, from April 13.

The Northern Irish designer has gone from strength to strength lately. Last year he won the British Fashion awards for both Womenswear and Menswear Designer of the Year, the first time this has ever happened. Anderson also recently launched a capsule collection for Net-a-Porter that reinvents the striped shirt.
