Last Friday, Uniqlo launched their spring/summer 2022 collection with JW Anderson. The collection is part of an ongoing collaboration with a London-based brand that has revolutionized contemporary fashion. The rich heritage of Britain’s sailing and seaside culture inspires this season’s concept of “at Home with the Sea”. The collection combines the evolving simplicity and quality of LifeWear with JW ANDERSON’s playful craftsmanship.
Designer Jonathan Anderson says that, “The sea has been integral to my life ever since I was a child. It inspired this collection, and I hope people enjoy incorporating this maritime styling in their wardrobes”.
The line-up features shirts, caps, and socks with embroidered sailboats in playful hues, as well as a knot dress and yacht parkas that look great against the blue backdrops of the sea and sky. Combining water repellency, mesh fabrics, and other functional elements that are uniquely UNIQLO with such signature JW ANDERSON elements as patchwork and asymmetry delivers comfort and design.
Colour blocking and borders add a touch of contrast and feature hues from nature, including oceanic blues, beige from the shores, and vivid reds and greens, for a relaxing seaside look.
The collection launched on 18th March instore and online at Uniqlo.com/uk.
