The J.W. Anderson For Uniqlo Collaboration Drops Tomorrow At 10AM

Irish designer J.W. Anderson has collaborated with Japanese retailer Uniqlo on a collection that goes on sale tomorrow at 10am. The 34-piece collection includes?Fair Isle knits, duffel coats, striped shirts and A-line skirts.

Anderson has described this collection as being about the?”small gesture”, and certainly there’s a restraint to his designs that would never work for one of his catwalk shows, but which benefits this range by making it so wearable and appropriate for everyday use. There’s a strong utilitarian vibe – trench?coats,?puffa jackets, backpacks – and an earthy palette that will make you want to swaddle yourself in one of the oversized cardigans or quilted skirts.?An occasional rainbow stripe, on a sweater and a scarf, adds a nice punctuation to the colour palette.

The collection offers a uniform for women (and men) who like?quality, comfort, and clean design. My list is lengthening each time I return to the Uniqlo website?and look at the full range. So far, I want the navy ultralight down jacket, the navy Fair Isle crew-neck long-sleeve cardigan, the grey lambswool graphic crew-neck long sleeve sweater and the khaki quilted skirt. The tartan padded tote bag also keeps catching my eye.

Ultra light down jacket, €99 at uniqlo.com

Lambswool graphic crew-neck sweater, €39.90 at uniqlo.com

Padded tote, €29.90 at uniqlo.com

So set your alarm for September 21 at 9pm because this collection won’t hang around. And who wouldn’t want a piece by?J.W. Anderson in their AW wardrobe?
