You guys know I'm always so happy when high-end design and affordable fashion meet, so imagine my joy when I was invited to the reveal of a new exciting collab in London, between the always innovative British designer J.W. Anderson and the super popular Japanese Uniqlo. I've been a fan of Uniqlo since forever (their basics are amazing for layering!), and when their meticulous manufacturing skills are combined with timeless preppy prints, well, that's just literally the best of both worlds, right? You guessed it: for the 30+ pieces of this Fall collection (which will be available from September 20 on!), J.W. Anderson went back to his British roots, resulting in lots of updated classics with a twist. Checked duffle coats, structured camel trenchcoats, tan loafers, patent leather Oxford shoes, casual striped knits, and some ruffled denim to spice things up, in a blue/red/yellow colour pattern that makes you wish it was already Fall!
I had so much fun picking out my favourite pieces from the collection, and since it's still sunny & warm outside right now, I couldn't help but fall (ha!) for this Uniqlo x J.W. Anderson striped white-&-blue two-piece with deconstructed ruffled edges (an ongoing trend for the new season). To make it a bit more casual, I paired it with oversized earrings, golden mules, my sweet little basket bag, and a baby blue manicure (O.P.I. It's a Boy!). Can't wait to transition this look into Fall by wearing it with a long camel coat, ankle booties, and a chunky scarf.
What do you think of the collection? Doesn't it already make you excited for the new season? :)
