Jonathan Anderson will be giving us big things from his latest collaboration project with Japanese giant retail brand UNIQLO. The 33-year-old Irish designer of award-winning brand J.W. Anderson is currently the Creative Director for Spanish brand, Loewe, is set to release a capsule collection for Uniqlo’s LifeWear range this coming fall season.
“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. 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,” said Anderson.
Anderson believes in the importance of joining forces through collaborations in design. He has previously worked with other brands like Topshop, Versus Versace, and also a collection with A$ap Rocky.
The collection will be inspired by the British-heritage motifs which are Anderson’s signature aesthetics. Senior Vice President of the Fast Retailing, Yuki Katsuka said on the British heritage concept, “The British Isles constitute a treasure house of such apparel, with duffle coats and fisherman’s sweaters being just two examples. In partnering with J.W. Anderson, one of Britain’s most innovative and creative brands, we will tap into traditions while pursuing progress in designs and fabrics, to craft styles that are enduringly appealing.”
Anderson’s collaboration will hit stores in fall of this year. In the meantime, check out his latest Autumn/Winter 2017 collection for J.W. Anderson and Loewe to get a taste of the kind designs and craftsmanship you can expect from his Uniqlo collection.
