British Modernism Takes the Spotlight for UNIQLO x JW Anderson

With UNIQLO and JW Anderson celebrating their fifth anniversary, minimalism is in play. The partnership yields a fall-winter 2022 collection influenced by British modernism. The season’s essential aspect is functionality, with simple designs referencing a classic British wardrobe. 

The UNIQLO x JW Anderson collection combines rich autumnal tones with fresh, luxurious fabrics. Models Nonso Ojukwu and Kit Jones are the faces of the season, bringing a boyishness to the collaboration. The models wear the range, which prioritizes minimalism and nods to architecture. 

“There are some great examples of modern British architecture that were the inspiration for this season – mainly those that have a stripped-back, minimalist sensibility,” explains JW Anderson. “There’s a simplicity to the design but also attention to detail that we wanted to convey in the collection, which comes from the design codes of architectural minimalism.”
