Behind the 2024 Spring/Summer Collection: Favorite Pieces

In The Artist’s Studio

For 2024 Spring/Summer, UNIQLO and JW ANDERSON worked together to create a collection inspired by mid-century British crafts like rug-making, weaving, and furniture-making. JW ANDERSON and UNIQLO collaborated with six London-based artists to honor the collection's deep historical context. From sculptors to painters to ceramists and designers, each artist was featured doing what they love, wearing what they love, all from the comfort of their own studios. We asked each artist about their collections.


Meet the Artists


Jack Laver

Jack Laver is a London-based multimedia artist and musician. He experiments with ink, adhesive, and resin as his primary materials. "My favorite point of this collection is the comfort," says Jack, "They feel like clothes I could work well in while in the studio." His favorite item was the linen-blend pants. "They mix smart and cozy styles perfectly."


Frances Wilks

Frances Wilks is an artist and art director whose focus moves primarily between photoshoots and painting. With her use of bright colors and recognizable symbols, Wilks creates a dialogue around societal norms, depicting darkness with a sweet tooth. "It's about feeling comfortable and confident as well as feeling like yourself," Frances says. For her, the socks were what she gravitated toward most, "I think because of the attention to detail."


Johannes Bosisio

Johannes Bosisio is a London-based artist whose work explores the urban landscape and its decay. Numerous key galleries and museums in cities such as London, Shanghai, and Tokyo have featured Bosisio's work in the past. His favorite pieces of this collection are the combination of the blue striped top and wide blue pants. "I think it's a great combination, and I like wearing wide, comfortable clothes."


Anna-Lena Krause

Anna-Lena Krause is a Berlin-born, multidisciplinary artist based in London. Krause works across various mediums – photography, sculpture, performance—and explores new ways to understand themes relating to our collective existence and perceptions.
Anna-Lena says she usually likes feminine, elegant looks that "complement or contrast each other." She appreciates the "subtle colors and mixed materials" of the collection, and she found herself pulled toward the blue dress the most because of its "effortlessness and its comfort."


Chris Bramble and
Freya Bramble-Carter

Chris Bramble and Freya Bramble-Carter are a father-daughter ceramicist duo in London, running their own studio and with their own respective art practices. Freya seeks to celebrate life with her work and creates pieces that are uplifting, sometimes provocative, but always fun. Chris' work evokes a warm, contemporary style, combining African forms and culture with modern techniques.
Freya says about the collection, "There is a looseness of play and a flirt ability with a flick of stripped confidence. I love the laid-back vibe; it's totally an everyday me! I feel an 'everything's OK' vibe! I like the feeling of freedom when wearing the skirt in combination with one of the striped or collared T-shirts.” Chris says his personal style is "simple and workman-suited as I spend most days in the studio—I need to feel comfy and flexible." His favorite piece in the collection is the "new white jacket because of its style and how it enhanced my look. It made me feel great!"

About the Collection

Using comfortable fabrics like linen, seersucker, and slub cotton with special techniques, the collection honors the past by creating a modern update on the everyday wardrobe. Pops of color are layered over neutral palettes and create a contrast reminiscent of mid-century design titans. Accessories like the tote bag and the everyday sock, in bold painted stripes and inspired by mid-century master weavers' colorful herringbone, marry form with function and provide the perfect twist to the timeless classics.
The collection will be available in stores worldwide on April 18—just in time for the arrival of warmer weather.
