“Collaborations are incredibly important in design," said Anderson to BofF. "When I think of Uniqlo, I think of things that are perfectly made, that people have spent a lot of time considering; it’s a difficult job, and I think Uniqlo do it very well. Working with Uniqlo is probably the most incredible template of democracy in fashion, and it’s nice that my design can be accessible to anyone, on all different levels.”
Yuki Katsuta, senior vice president of Fast Retailing and head of research and design at Uniqlo, said the new line embodies both labels’ shared vision of elegance, simplicity and individuality — with a strong British accent.
"Much of the clothing we wear today has a long history, and many styles originated from uniforms or work wear. The British Isles constitute a treasure house of such apparel, with duffle coats and fisherman's sweaters being just two examples," added Yuki Katsuta, UNIQLO's Senior Vice President of Fast Retailing and Head of Research and Design. "In partnering with J.W. Anderson, one of Britain's most innovative and creative brands, we will tap into traditions while pursuing progress in designs and fabrics, to craft styles that are enduringly appealing."
