As the designer of both J.W. Anderson and Loewe, Jonathan Anderson has a lot going on. Between the two lines, he produces six full collections a year including men's and women's ready-to-wear, and accessories. You might think that would be enough to exhaust the British-born wunderkind, but you would be wrong. Today, the designer is opening a new space he's calling Workshops in Shoreditch, London, as a venue to house product from his namesake label, J.W. Anderson, as well as some of his extracurricular endeavors.

As of yesterday,  the 250-square-foot space will host a rotating collection of product, as well as installations, exhibitions, and events. Printed matter is also central to the Workshops, and a limited number of fanzines and other materials will be released to illustrate the multifarious goings-on. The space also houses a curated exhibition and sale of publications by Spanish editor, Luis Venegas. Venegas worked with Anderson on a line of spin-off merchandise to sell alongside his magazines—which include Candy and The Printed Dog. In March, Anderson will release a collaboration with photographer Ian David Baker, and will sell limited-edition prints alongside a capsule collection featuring Baker's imagery.

Obsessed with J.W. Anderson and not able to make it to Shoreditch? Fret not, the collections will be available on his site, where you'll also—eventually—find a guide to the goings-on at the mysterious space. It's still not exactly clear what precisely will be happening at the Workshops, but we're sure we won't want to miss it. 

Clothing and books are among the goods that will be on offer.
