J.W. Anderson's line for Uniqlo merges British daywear classics with graphic design elements. Northern Irish designer Jonathan Anderson announced that he was partnering with the Japanese high street retailer on a capsule collection through his eponymous brand in March.

Now, Uniqlo has given fashion fans a glimpse at the fall/winter 2017 range, which comprises 33 pieces, including oversize coats, turtleneck sweaters and fine knits.

"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," Anderson said in a statement. "Doing something with Uniqlo is very interesting. It means you come up with a wardrobe which is universal and quirky."

Uniqlo's senior vice president of fast retailing, Yuki Katsuta, is pleased with how the line embodies each brand's ethos.

"The inspiration for much of the clothing we wear today was the uniforms, work wear, and sportswear that originated in the British Isles. We have combined the energy, creativity, and traditional touches of J.W. Anderson with our fit, fabrics, and functionality, as part of our quest to craft wardrobe essentials that are enduringly appealing," he said.
