Nov., 2017, Singapore – UNIQLO announces plans to launch a Spring/Summer 2018 UNIQLO and JW ANDERSON collection, following the positive response worldwide for its Fall/Winter 2017 line. The new collection, created once again in collaboration with London-based fashion brand JW ANDERSON, will include items for men and women, and will be available in the upcoming Spring/Summer 2018 season at selected UNIQLO stores and online at www.uniqlo.com/sg.

Commenting on the announcement, Jonathan Anderson said, “The first UNIQLO and JW ANDERSON collaboration was super exciting for me, and I am very happy with the results. I am proud of it and I think the pieces are incredibly well made. The line was also a good bridge between the ideal of British classicism and my own brand.” He added, “The Spring/Summer 2018 collection is about items that interlink with each other. It's about layering this time. The idea is to mix and match things together, and I truly hope you will enjoy it.”
