Yoox celebrates 20th anniversary with exclusive jw anderson capsule

by Stephen Garner

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.
