J.W. Anderson X Uniqlo
Quote:
BY OSMAN AHMED
MARCH 29, 2017 14:48
LONDON, United Kingdom — Japanese apparel giant Uniqlo is collaborating with Jonathan Anderson. The Irish designer, who is creative director of Loewe as well as his namesake London-based label, joins a roll call of major designers and other figures who have previously collaborated with the brand, including Jil Sander, Carine Roitfeld and Inès de la Fressange.

“Collaborations are incredibly important in design," said 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.”

“Much of the clothing we wear today has a long history, and many styles originated from uniforms or work wear," added Yuki Katsuta, senior vice president of Fast Retailing and head of research and design at Uniqlo. "The British Isles constitute a treasure house of such apparel, with duffle coats and fisherman’s sweaters being just two examples. In partnering with JW Anderson, one of Britain’s most innovative and creative brands, we will tap into traditions while pursuing progress in design and fabrics, to craft styles that are enduringly appealing.”

Anderson, 33, rose to prominence on the London Fashion Week schedule as a provocative menswear designer. He launched womenswear in 2010 and was appointed creative director of the Spanish leather goods brand Loewe in 2013. The designer's collaboration with Uniqlo sees him return to the high street for the first time since 2012, when he designed two limited edition collections of clothing and accessories for British retailer Topshop, both of which sold out within hours of launch.

Uniqlo parent Fast Retailing expects to post record operating profit in the year to August 2017.

Thank god my money is already well spent on Lemaire's Uniqlo U, so I don't expect to be particularly seduced on this, taking into account I already don't like his own mainline and Loewe collections.

Really excited for this. I'm curious to see what he'll do since his brand doesn't quite a recognizable look or statement pieces to be replaced like other brands who did collaborations.

Jonathan is in such a roll, what a smooth sailing career.

I want to like him, but I just can't. I expect this to be a more watered-down version of his work, so I'll give it a chance. But just one.

I hope it will be more like his work for Loewe rather than his own line.
I'm going to keep an eye on this, curious to see what direction this will go.

This is great. JWA for me is about fun shirts and shirt dresses and fun knitwear. Those two things could be well executed by the Uniqlo team.
I expect more JW than Loewe because the appeal of Loewe is luxury. Sure JW add his own fun twist to it but Uniqlo should have another spirit...

Great collaboraton.
I kinda wonder why COS don't do collabs with designers. Their quality is great and i think that at COS/JWA collab could be great.
