JW Anderson Debuts Third UNIQLO Collaboration. The collection, which was inspired by British heritage, will hit stores on March 8.
After the successful first and second collaboration of the Fall/Winter 2017 and Spring/Summer 2018 collection between Northern-Irish designer, Jonathan Anderson and Japanese casual-wear manufacturer and retailer, UNIQLO. Both return with yet another collaboration this time for Spring/Summer 2019; bringing us back to basics with classic British style serves as the core constructive ethos.
In the coming release, there’s a suite of unisex basic items to allow for a wide range of stylings, where individuals can express themselves differently with layered or reversible designs. This latest offering of LifeWear crosses generational and gender borders, bringing out each person’s unique style, and can be worn on a wide range of occasions.
The collection range includes reversible outerwear, casual shirt and fresh pocket T-shirts in colourful striped patterns (A homage to Anderson’s father who was internationally known as rugby player), a pullover with a hood and marine border stripes, and a classic tote bag. Bucket hats that were popular last season have been updated with stripes, seahorses, and floral prints in a new, reversible design. There are also light summer jackets that pair well with casual drawstring long pants and/or shorts for slightly more dapper settings.
On the latest collaboration, Anderson said, “It is always fun collaborating with UNIQLO. I always find it super interesting how two brands with very different backgrounds can come together to create an exciting collection. In the third collation of the collaboration, I envision a summer wardrobe that can be relaxed and chic at the same time; a versatile and youthful collection.”
The line-up will be a great addition to UNIQLO’s everyday wardrobe that combines high-quality materials, fit, and functionality. JW Anderson and UNIQLO’s SS19 collection is due to arrive in select stores worldwide beginning March 8. And for UNIQLO shopper in Jakarta, the collection will be available at UNIQLO Pondok Indah Mall.
