We picked out the top 10 items to grab from the buzzy spring collaboration between London designer Jonathan Anderson and everyone’s favourite Japanese basics brand.
The collection is inspired by Britain's Brighton Beach as seen through a nostalgic, 1950s lens. There's plenty of denim, along with summery fabrics like linen and cotton, and the pieces are wearable without seeming boring, and quirky without coming off outrageously avant-garde. Scroll down for our picks for what to shop when the collection launches in stores on April 19th.
This asymmetrical skirt has notes of JW Anderson's spring 2018 runway collection. With it's patchwork detailing and powder-blue hue, it's the perfect statement piece for summer.
Linen-cotton long flare skirt ($59.90)
With any designer collaboration, there's always a standout piece you just know will sell out quick. This time, we're betting on this picnic-plaid skirt. The silhouette is classic ’50s—swishy and knee-length, but the print is a decidedly edgy take on tartan.
High waist flare skirt ($59.90)
You can't go wrong with a pyjama-style linen pant. The back pockets are made from the same contrast material as the waist tie. Wear yours with the hems generously cuffed—it's how the pant was styled in the collection look book.
Wide cropped pants ($49.90)
Although the collection takes cues from the ’50s, the ubiquitous ’90s trend pops up as well. This bucket hat is a fun piece to experiment with this summer.
Practical, but with a hit of logomania, this backpack is lightweight and super versatile.
Duffle bag ($49.90)
The seagull is the signature motif of this collection, and pops up on button downs and shirts. Our fave is this light weight knit.
Cotton crew-neck sweater ($39.90)
This dress looks basic at first glance, but the asymmetrical hem gives added interest.
Polo ruffle dress ($39.90)
And it also comes in a T-shirt!
Striped ruffle short-sleeve T-shirt ($24.90)
Do we really need to give you more reasons to give fun socks a try?
Striped socks ($4.90)
This pair of jeans is workwear inspired, wear them on their own or with the matching jacket from the collection, and roll the cuffs for that retro look.
