“My brother just had a child, so in a way, it kind of made sense to do children’s wear,” Anderson toldWWD.
“I like the idea of miniature versions of adult clothing. I think everything small is very cute. I’ve always done this collaboration because I wear and buy Uniqlo and I feel that it has to be a very slow progress, not like a fashion show. This is the base, and it’s nice to have the classicism you can get through Uniqlo. In fashion shows, you can get away with a bit more and experiment, and it might not ever turn into a reality, whereas this all has to turn into reality.”
The new line features both adult and children’s versions of the same clothing and includes patchwork stripe t-shirts, maxi dresses, trousers, jackets, trench coats and shoes, among other items. Color blocking and gingham prints feature heavily throughout the collection.
Uniqlo’s fifthcollaboration with JW Anderson is available now on the Uniqlo website.
