JW Anderson x Uniqlo’s new drop is where practicality meets style

The Uniqlo and JW Anderson partnership has been going strong since the first collaborative collection launched in Autumn/Winter 2017 – and it’s gone from strength to strength ever since. Combining Uniqlo’s high quality materials, minimalist practicality and high street price points with Jonathan Anderson’s innovative and forward-thinking design, the collections are always highly sought after for good reason.

For A/W 2020, the designer centred on the theme ‘A Day in London’, offering a wardrobe inspired by everyday life in this sophisticated city. From a brisk walk through the colourful houses of Notting Hill to an afternoon spent relaxing with a favourite book when the skies outside are grey, these are the very clothes to do just that in.

Drawing on his signature design elements such as patchwork and asymmetry and a warm colour palette of forest green, rust and navy, the collection is full of timeless British classics with a recognisable JW Anderson twist.

From belted coats to striped shirts, turtleneck jumpers to checked trousers, each piece is unassuming enough that it would slide right into most wardrobes and work instantly, while elevating any outfit in a subtle and elegant way.

There are accessories too in the way of colourful ribbed ankle socks (these are technically men’s but whose to stop us purchasing a pair for ourselves?) and huge wool-blend brushed scarves in three different stripy colourways that look so cosy we can’t wait for a chilly day. The backpack (which comes in red, brown and navy) also looks like the ultimate rucksack style bag that will see us through for years.

In true Uniqlo style, most pieces are available in at least 2, if not 4 or 5, different colours, so you’re bound to find something to suit you.

The price points are worth shouting about too – starting from £3.90, most pieces sit within the £30-£50 bracket, making it all super affordable.

The full JW Anderson x Uniqlo Autumn/Winter 2020 collection drops in stores and online on 15 October at 7am – and that 7am is important as key pieces are bound to sell out fast. Set your alarms, people.
