Uniqlo is once again partnering with London-based fashion brand, JW Anderson, for their spring/summer collection this 2018.
Inspired by Britain’s Brighton Beach, the collection highlights designer JW Anderson’s unique take on British culture: vibrant, colorful, and full of contrasts. All items are also suitable for mixing and layering, for summer outfits that you wouldn't mind rocking in the city or while on vacation.
Jonathan Anderson, founder of JW Anderson, said in a statement: “In the 2nd collection of the collaboration, I’m looking for this idea of ‘British Summer,’ the idea of being on the Brighton beach. Something which is very lightweight, very airy, with a lot of linen, and cotton that has a 1950’s subcultural movement. With a little bit of ease and something which is quintessential.”
He added: “As a Uniqlo customer, I know exactly the quality that the brand gives to its products. I am very proud of the level of execution and the attention to details that we delivered on this new spring/summer collection."
The collection includes vividly striped shirts and knit polos perfect for beach or casual wear. The range also features 1950s-style denim jackets and tunic shirts inspired by traditional British police uniforms.
In keeping with Uniqlo’s LifeWear commitment to quality, some items in the collection are made from soft, top-quality extra fine cotton; while the others are made from prestigious Kaihara denim from Japan. The collection also features “Dry-Ex,” which dries sweat and moisture incredibly fast.
Uniqlo is set to launch its 2018 spring/summer Uniqlo and JW Anderson collection for men and women in 19 countries and regions on Friday, April 19. The complete lineup will be available in SM Megamall, SM Aura, SM Mall of Asia, and C3 Annex.
