UNIQLO to Launch Collection with JW Anderson for Fall 2017
UNIQLO has a new design collaboration in the works with British fashion brand JW Anderson for Fall 2017. Irish designer JW Anderson sprung to popularity a few years ago when he did a collaboration with Topshop. For UNIQLO, his collection will include men’s and women’s items. Look for JW Anderson for UNIQLO this Fall/Winter 2017 season at select UNIQLO stores and online. Our spies tell us that the JW Anderson collaboration will capitalize on the British heritage of JW Anderson and the everyday comfort of UNIQLO‘s LifeWear concept.
“Collaborations are incredibly important in design. When I think of UNIQLO, I think of things that are perfectly made, that people have spent a lot of time considering; it’s a difficult job, and I think UNIQLO do it very well,” says designer Jonathan Anderson. “Working with UNIQLO is probably the most incredible template of democracy in fashion, and it’s nice that my design can be accessible to anyone, on all different levels.”
Look for very British apparel items like duffle coats and fisherman’s sweaters from JW Anderson for UNIQLO. We hope JW Anderson for UNIQLO will be as classic and well designed as our UNIQLO favorite Ines de la Fressange. We love all this “democracy in fashion”–a phrase I starting using here on the blog in 2009 before there were all these low-priced designer collaborations. Now designer collaborations at Target, UNIQLO, Topshop, Walmart, Lane Bryant, Express and other retailers are common place.
