Back in March, Uniqlo named Northern Ireland born J.W. Anderson and Loewe designer Jonathan Anderson its newest collaborator. Anderson promised a line inspired by the British heritage keynotes ever present in his work.
Yesterday, the line made its Vogue debut and, true to the designer’s word, the collection is filled with Fair Isle and fisherman sweaters, rugby and Savile Row stripes and tartan-accented duffle and trench coats. The pieces are quirky, practical, un-boring yet corporate friendly.
Anderson has dubbed this 33-piece range as “democratic” which has a lot of people salivating over the quilted bags, pinstripe pants and colourful button-downs. The line includes clothing for both men and women, but ignore the designations and buy what you like, oversized is in, and Anderson is a known advocate of gender-fluid fashion.
