Uniqlo will launch its new spring/summer collection with JW Anderson later this month.

Created with a hope for new beginnings and brighter days, the collection continues to evolve LifeWear with signature JW Anderson craftsmanship and heirloom charm.

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.

Cool linen and seersucker lighten the impact of such key collection colors like khaki, brown, and ivory. Men’s and women’s offerings include shorts and feature the homespun feels of linen blends and slub cotton. Signature JW Anderson craftsmanship shines through in the stitchwork and simple silhouettes of this relaxing collection.

“I was really thinking of spring when I was working on this collection,” said Jonathan Anderson, founder and designer of JW Anderson. “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.”

Uniqlo’s new spring/summer 2021 collection with JW Anderson will be available on April 22nd.
