It’s been a busy week for Jonathan Anderson in New York. On Tuesday night, he was on hand at the Noguchi museum as Japanese ceramicist Eriko Inazaki took home the Loewe Foundation Craft Prize. And on Wednesday, a very different change of scene: Anderson played host, together with Ssense, to the likes of Jemima Kirke, Tommy Dorfman, Kit Connor, Dominique Jackson, Tyler Mazaheri, Alexander Roth, Lucas Zwirner, Jessie Andrews, Hillary Taymour, Jeremy Kost and more, at East Village gay bar The Boiler Room in celebration of the JW Anderson Bumper Hike sneaker collection.
Glasses of vodka sodas and bottles of Advil lined the room as people danced and mingled as it neared 11 p.m. The Bumper Hike sneaker collection will be available on JW Anderson and Ssense’s respective sites beginning in the fall — but it’s never too soon to celebrate, right?
