Uniqlo and JW Anderson join forces once again to launch the 2021 Spring/Summer collection on April 23. The new line-up is the latest collaborative effort between the global apparel retailer and the London-based brand revolutionising contemporary fashion.
Created with a hope for new beginnings and brighter days, the Uniqlo x JW Anderson SS21 collection continues to evolve the LifeWear line, which the two developed based on the theme of "British classics, designed for life today" since their first partnership in 2017.
"I was really thinking of spring when I was working on this collection. We were all staying inside and I was looking forward to when we could venture out again. I also wanted to incorporate a feeling of craft, as it's very important to me," says Jonathan Anderson, fashion designer and founder of JW Anderson.
A playful sense of ease threads through the range. T-shirts, blouses, hats, tote bags and other items feature wildflower embroidery accents with appearances that vary according to hue and fabric. Other noteworthy touches are blanket stitching on men's T-shirts and work shirts and on women's denim items, as well as bohemian smocking on dresses and skirts.
