Uniqlo is set to launch its fall/winter collaboration with British fashion label JW Anderson on Thursday, October 15th.

This season, the collaboration is inspired by “A Day in London,” where one can imagine a brisk walk to the market in the morning, or an afternoon spent relaxing with a favorite book wearing items from a luxurious wardrobe patterned after everyday life in that refined city. A general atmosphere of relaxed tradition brightens the collection with JW Anderson’s signature touches like warm hues of olive, navy, charcoal grey, and amber, as well as patchwork and asymmetry.

The kids wear line that debuted last season is back by popular demand. It includes fleece blousons and pleated skirts that coordinate easily with adults, as well as striped knitted hats and snoods that make winter living both comfortable and fun.

“The new line builds on the ‘The Great British Outdoors’ theme of the 2019 fall/winter collection through LifeWear that reinterprets British classics in exploring London, notably through iconic checkered patterns and duffle coat styles,” said Jonathan Anderson, designer and founder of JW Anderson. “My design process drills down to the essence of things, and the final looks for this collection embody my personality and that of the Uniqlo brand.”

The full collection will be available on uniqlo.com and at the following stores: 5th Ave. (NY), SoHo (NY), 34th St. (NY), Beverly Center (CA), Union Square (CA), and N. Michigan Ave. (IL). Select items from the collection will be available at all stores.
