Uniqlo has announced a new collaboration with British label J.W. Anderson. The line is a fusion of the Anderson’s design aesthetic and Uniqlo premium clothing construction. Founder Jonathan Anderson shares the story behind the collaboration:
“I think what UNIQLO and JW ANDERSON have in common is the idea of ‘making a new product’. That’s always fascinating. The idea of reducing something to its essence is a very Japanese cultural thing. It can be culturally, textile, or silhouette driven, but it’s about the idea of reducing something down so that you can create the most impact.”
The 33-piece range includes classic Uniqlo silhouettes all updated with Anderson’s bold vision of color-infused garments. We see trench coats, turtleneck sweaters and draped jeans skirts, which all slightly reference English living. The partnership between the two is a minimalist’s dream, providing solid pieces for the cold weather to come.
This collection will be available at Uniqlo’s site on September 21 and land in stores on September 22. Scroll through the full line above.
