An interracial fashion relationship has birthed the perfect winter wardrobe
Japanese giant retailer Uniqlo’s fashion foray knows no bounds. Not only are its massive outlets proliferating like wild mushrooms on international terrains, but Uniqlo also has a history of numerous partnerships between luxury fashion houses, churning out stylish collections that are aligned to the brand’s mantra of functionality and affordability.
Entering the fray with the likes of Germany’s Jill Sander, France’s Inès de la Fressange and Australia’s Helmut Lang, UK-based designer Jonathan Anderson has combined bold and graphic design aesthetics from his namesake label J.W. Anderson with Uniqlo’s innovative textiles for a 33-piece collaborative collection.
The anticipated line features straight-forward British classics for autumn, reflecting wearable silhouettes that encourage layering for men and women alike. This is seen through its double-breasted belted Trench Coat ($249.90) and Wool Blended Quilted Jacket ($149.90). Aside from neutral colours of olive, grey and camel, the collection also offers up spunk with rainbow-striped scarfs and tartan-printed backpacks ($59.90).
Here are a few things we gleaned from J.W. Anderson X Uniqlo Collection’s press preview:
Highland tartan prints take center-stage of the collection, where the key piece is a toasty light down jacket ($149.90) for both men and women. Also available in shirts, there are tote bags and backpacks for the picking in cushiony and padded textures.
