Uniqlo x JW Anderson’s SS22 collection is a stylish celebration of the British seaside

Love it or hate it, the British seaside has always had a special aesthetic. But in a sea of ​​horizontal stripes, beach huts and cartoon crabs, Uniqlo and JW Anderson have come together for a capsule collection set to redefine the look of the English coast with an ultra-stylish focus. Simply put, your wardrobe is about to get a whole lot more maritime.

As top designers team up with established main street stalwarts is a concept that will always spark exciting discussions between QG publishers, the Uniqlo/JW Anderson relationship is not new. Typically uniting once a season, the powerful duo complemented each other’s best-known qualities, delivering the versatile must-haves we’ve come to expect from Uniqlo and JW Anderson’s affinity for expressive design motifs and themes and color palettes in an elevated, affordable collection.

Entitled “At Home with the Sea”, the collaborative SS22 collection is inspired by JW Anderson founder and designer Jonathan Anderson’s infatuation with sailing and the British coast. “The sea has been an integral part of my life since I was a child,” he says of the collection, and it’s this personal passion that shines through in every new piece.

Unlike the recent Uniqlo U SS22 collection, where we were relieved of our loungewear and into a series of fancy staples (no, we still haven’t taken this trench coat off), the new Uniqlo x JW Anderson collaboration is steeped in the windswept feeling of returning to our social lives, vacations, garden parties and adventure. Nautical patterns combine with a sandy color palette punctuated by bold seaweed greens and sky blues, balancing ultra-clean cuts with a series of functional layering pieces.

When it comes to preparing your new season wardrobe, Uniqlo x JW Anderson always comes at the right time, and the new collection is no different. That said, we know anticipating a collection like this is no small feat, and the most coveted items from the Uniqlo x JW Anderson collections rarely stay on track for long. So we’ve gone ahead and compiled a selection of the standout pieces that are worth putting in your shopping cart when the new line launches. All on deck – it’s time to get your wishlist ready before March 18th.
