Big things to come.

While it’s hard to imagine a world in which UNIQLO could improve on its list of collaborators (Carine Roitfeld, Hana Tajima, Christophe Lemaire), we think it may have just done it.

This morning, the apparel giant announced the most recent designer to join its ranks, Jonathan Anderson.

Anderson, who is currently the creative director of both Loewe and his namesake label, shares our enthusiasm about the project.

“Collaborations are incredibly important in design,” he said. “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 does 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.”

According to UNIQLO, the collection will include products for both men and women, combining their everyday “Lifewear” philosophy with Anderson’s signature British heritage.

And while we don’t have many other details just yet, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for any sneak peeks. We highly doubt the duo will disappoint.
