*that* collar :

Statement example of J.W. Anderson’s use of accessory and layering. These zip up collars are reminiscent of 60’s acrylic decoration and the turtleneck dickie (i.e. Dinner for Schmucks).

Retails around £150 :

The Uniqlo Collab :

The collection is playful and fun, and even a tad patriotic in places with a few classic school girl coats, tartan, and smart tweed to add to the mix of primary colours and stripes.

If you can get one item, get the the oversized turtleneck sweater, which is like a grown-up unif crayola sweater. I have this in size large and its perfect for the fit on a size 8/10. They’re sold out at the moment, but you can get them to email you when available again, or you can still nab one second hand.

If you missed it,the collab is returning for SS18, which is rumoured to have a greater emphasis on layering. Watch this space!Screen Shot 2017-12-05 at 22.12.07.png
