J.W. Anderson x Uniqlo - Reimagined, Classic British

J.W. Anderson x Uniqlo - Reimagined, Classic British

It is nothing groundbreaking to say that Uniqlo is the epitome of staple basics, full of simple yet high quality pieces at affordable prices. Infamous for its various collaborations, the brand keeps things innovative and exciting each season. Partnering with British designer, J.W. Anderson, the brand's newest collaboration features quintessentially British staples reimagined and updated for the FW17 season. 

Full of sweaters bright primary colors and horizontal stripes and timeless silhouettes, the collaboration is understandably in high demand (read: I will sell my soul for the sold-out multi-colored striped turtleneck). 

For me, the point of doing this collaboration was that I believe in democracy in fashion, and what I hope will be achieved is that any age demographic can pick up and find something within the collection to relate to. Doing something with UNIQLO is very interesting. It means you come up with a wardrobe which is universal and quirky.
— Jonathan Anderson

In the spirit of emptying your bank account, as I have already done, here are some of my favorite pieces (currently still available too!).

Oversize Turtleneck Sweater

It's classic, it's comfy, it's exactly what you need to layer under a leather jacket. Update: the striped one is available again and in my cart (I already have the bright blue!). Shop here.
