Uniqlo announced today that it has added renowned British fashion brand J.W.Anderson to its collaborators list. The collection will include both men’s and women’s items and will combine British heritage with the fit, fabric and functionality that Uniqlo’s LifeWear brand presents. Commenting on the announcement, designer Jonathan Anderson said, “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 does 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.”
With a KAWS x Peanuts Uniqlo UT collection set to drop at the end of April, Anderson will present a collection at Pitto Uomo 92 before the J.W.Anderson x Uniqlo collection makes its way into Uniqlo stores and online for the 2017 fall/winter season.
