In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Yoox has teamed up with JW Anderson on an exclusive collection.
The new JW Anderson x Yoox collaboration features 10 genderless styles including ready-to-wear, handbags, and footwear retailing between $380 and $1,140.
Designer Jonathan Anderson looked back through the JW Anderson archives, pulling on familiar themes and codes to create a one-of-a-kind capsule collection for the online retailer.
The silhouettes, colors, and fabrics of JW Anderson x Yoox speak to the brand’s inherent Britishness. A muted aristocratic elegance runs through the designs in warm khakis, browns, and greys. Felt loafer mules offer casual, comfortable, chic footwear. And the look is completed with a signature bag. Throughout, male and female looks combine in a conscious cross-pollination.
The collection’s corduroy trench coat touches on an essential element of the JW Anderson’s heritage: patchwork has been a recurring theme since the beginning. JW Anderson has always challenged binary notions of gender, and this literal patching together of fabrics and textures illustrates a freedom beyond binary choices. A pleated skirt and shirt dress with incongruous, asymmetrical lines signal a shared vocabulary as cultural agitators.
The JW Anderson x Yoox collection is now available at yoox.com.
