UNIQLO x JW Anderson SS21 Brings The Great Outdoors To Our Wardrobes

Spring may not be that significant a season in our tropical climate calendars, but we assure you, it’s about to feel a lot like it when you warm up to this latest drop. The UNIQLO x JW Anderson Spring/Summer 2021 collection is here with the promise of new hope and brighter days ahead, thanks to the wildflower embroidery and quirky craft details found across the casual range of t-shirts, shorts, pants, dresses, and skirts.

The lineup is part of the Japanese fashion retailer’s ongoing collaboration with the London-based label, and features 15 items for women and 12 items for men, along with accessories . “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,” said designer Jonathan Anderson, who also currently helms Spanish luxury house, LOEWE.

 

With this seasonal collection, there’s a clear artisanal aesthetic brought across, Anderson’s “feeling of craft”, where we see playful embroidery accents of vibrant wildflowers on casual t-shirts, cotton caps, and even socks. The craftwork inspiration also comes across with the use of bohemian smocking, as well as blanket stitching, in a contrast shade along the sleeves of a t-shirt for instance, or more subtly across the top of the pockets on a pair of denim jeans.

Other more classic wear of dresses, shorts, and pants take on a utilitarian-meets-breezy vibe, with relaxed silhouettes and the use of materials such as linen blends, slub cotton, and seersucker fabric. You’ll also find the colour palette to be rather earthy in nature — khaki, olive, brown, ivory, and blue reign throughout, though the occasional orange and mustard do make an appearance for pleasant pops of colour.

Check out some of the key pieces from the collection here, before you shop the collection on 23 April.
