The JW Anderson x UNIQLO collaboration has done it again! With sturdy silhouettes and Prince of Wales checks, the collaborative line puts British elegance back in the forefront. This time around, according to the designer himself, the theme is “A Day in London,” complete with compelling outerwear and comfy knitwear.
Fashion fans wouldn’t have expected that such an edgy designer like British wonder JW Anderson and his unique design sensibilities would ever mesh well with the Japanese casual wear behemoth UNIQLO. But since partnering up in 2017, both brand and designer have consistently produced utterly sophisticated collections. They combine both the craftsmanship of the former with the simplicity of the latter.
This fall 2020, the collaboration takes the quintessential Londoner in mind. With a series of well-crafted winterwear, paired with easy streamline silhouettes, such pieces combine both posh and practicality in equal measure. A navy trench coat, for example, exudes a subdued elegance without sacrificing its straightforward sensibility. While an olive green anorak reeks of sophisticated streetwear, a look that JW Anderson fans are all too familiar with.
Another JW Anderson signature fashion fans would appreciate are the oversized silhouettes, especially for the womenswear. But this season, paired with UNIQLO’s luxurious materials, are made with comfortable textures ready to warm and hug the body. Think knitted sweaters that give ample space for breathable style. Or a chic lambskin coat in a 1960s-esque cocoon shape.
The JW Anderson x UNIQLO fall 2020 collaboration collection will hit UNIQLO’s online store on October 15, 2020. For now, you can go to the site to see the entire collection. Once you have, share your thoughts and reactions in our comments section below!
