Following on the heels of Jil Sander and Carine Roitfeld collaboartions, Japanese apparel giant Uniqlo announced its latest partner: Loewe creative director: Jonathan Anderson.
“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 do 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,” said Anderson.
Yuki Katsuta, Senior Vice President of Fast Retailing and Head of Research and Design at UNIQLO, also commented on the collaboration: ”In partnering with JW Anderson, one of Britain’s most innovative and creative brands, we will tap into traditions while pursuing progress in designs and fabrics, to craft styles that are enduringly appealing.”
The collection will include both men’s and women’s clothes and will be a combination of British heritage with Uniqlo’s fit, fabric and functionality. Uniqlo X J. W. Anderson will hit the Uniqlo stores for the 2017 fall/winter season.
