NEW LAUNCH: UNIQLO x JW Anderson SS19 Collection
This season’s women’s collection includes trendy border stripes that have been used in a number of items, such as tank tops, ruffled dresses, and the linen scarves that are essential for summer; giving a slight marine-style feel to everyday wear. The paisley patterns shown on the JW ANDERSON runway have been tweaked for this collaboration and offered in designs with four types of detailed motifs. The feathery silhouettes from the runway are presented with little change in dresses, blouses, and skirts. A duffle bag with the JW ANDERSON logo has British-style Japonisme, bold floral graphics for a resort-style accent. A stylish and feminine hooded cropped blouson jacket has gently flowing culottes, creating an effortless, classy summer set-up style.
The men’s lineup includes reversible outerwear to expand the range of outfit options, casual and fresh pocket T-shirts in colorful striped patterns, pullover with a new meeting of a hood and marine border stripes, and a classic tote bag. The bucket hats that were popular last season have been updated with stripes, seahorses, and floral prints in a new, reversible design. Light summer jackets for more formal settings pair with casual drawstring long pants and shorts. Jonathan Anderson’s father was an internationally known rugby player who played in Ireland in the 1980s. Rugby is a weekend tradition in the U.K., and this collection includes the rugger shirts that have a close connection with Jonathan, offered in playful color patterns.
