There’s something about the UK in the summertime—whether you’re lounging in a London park, or tripping around quaint country laneways and old-timey British pubs, there is an unbeatable charm and a little understated polish that our sweaty, sandy summer will simply never have.
While a trip to England is off the cards for the foreseeable future, you can at least play pretend in the fun new Brit summer-inspired Uniqlo x JW Anderson collab.
Dropping next Thursday 29th October, this sartorial collab is as sweet as an English rose garden. Fresh from his inventive and much-loved “fashion show in a box” concept for both his men's and women's Resort 2021 collections, designer Jonathan Anderson hasn’t skipped a beat on a fresh, wearable, but slightly whimsical new edit for Uniqlo.
Prep for your spring and summertime picnics in plaid, patchwork dresses and skirts, oversize tote bags in of-the-moment gingham, and classic British-style outerwear, all in pop-bright colours inspired by romantic Notting Hill’s colourful terraces and street markets.
For guys, it’s an all-weather kind of summer (as it often is in the UK), with pocketable parkas, duffle coats, and on-trend anorak styling. Anderson has also, for the first time, dropped kids-wear—meaning the little people in your life can be equally as stylish as you for park hangs and summer barbecues.
