Mark your calendars for the Uniqlo X JW Anderson collection that is set to be launched exclusively at Uniqlo's Global Flagship Store at Orchard Central, and online at www.uniqlo.com/sg on 22 September 2017.
JW Anderson is an internationally renowned fashion brand from London and this collection takes inspiration from its British heritage to launch 33 pieces of apparels. The new line features British classics that combine the signature bold and graphic design aesthetic of JW Anderson with Uniqlo's excellence in fabrics, fit and functionality. Expect to see details like tartans and stripes, and classics such as a double-breasted belted Trench Coat, the Wool Blended Quilted Jacket, the Fair Isle Sweater, and the Striped Scarf. Look out for the Paddington Bear lookalike jacket that we set our eyes on too. We have more or less decided to camp for that classic piece.
The new collaboration line includes multi-border cut and sewn pieces, knits, and stoles in vivid hues, as well as ruffle blouses and skirts. Items such as the Wool Blended Quilted Jacket and the Padded Tote Bag, feature a faux leather patch with the anchor logo, for an unmistakably JW Anderson touch.
“For me, the point of doing this collaboration was that I believe in democracy in fashion, and what I hope will be achieved is that any age demographic can pick up and find something within the collection to relate to. Doing something with UNIQLO is very interesting. It means you come up with a wardrobe which is universal and quirky,” said Jonathan Anderson, the founder of JW Anderson.

Yuki Katsuta, Senior Vice President of Fast Retailing and Head of Research and Design at UNIQLO, said, "This line embodies our shared vision of offering elegance, simplicity, timeless comfort, and individuality through LifeWear. The inspiration for much of the clothing we wear today was the uniforms, work wear, and sportswear that originated in the British Isles. We have combined the energy, creativity, and traditional touches of JW ANDERSON with our fit, fabrics, and functionality, as part of our quest to craft wardrobe essentials that are enduringly appealing."
