Uniqlo and JW Anderson are celebrating five years of their popular collaboration with a new collection for AW22: Minimalism at Play.
The new collection drops this week, giving us a helping hand at creating the perfect capsule wardrobe for the new season early on.
Following on from the collaborator’s SS22 collection, the autumn drop features simple and effortless yet practical pieces we’ve come to love from Uniqlo, such as a delicious fair isle cardigan, a marino wool turtleneck jumper and a chequered waterproof fleece.
The inspiration behind the collection was modern British architecture. Anderson explains: “There’s a simplicity to the design but also attention to detail that we wanted to convey in the collection, which comes from the design codes of architectural minimalism.”
Speaking about the brand’s five-year anniversary, he adds says: “Over the years, with each collection, we’ve developed this really collaborative relationship with UNIQLO that’s interesting to see evolve.
“Any good collaboration has to involve a meeting of two minds or two brands, with the blend or tension of the codes from each. It’s a challenge but the teams work together and we can see the elements of JW Anderson applied to framework of UNIQLO.
“UNIQLO can tick boxes globally—I really admire that. I find Mr.Yanai and his vision so inspiring.”
