JW Anderson Designs Genderless Capsule Collection for Yoox
Launching tomorrow, the collection features 10 pieces that can be worn by everyone.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of e-commerce platform Yoox, and to celebrate, British designer JW Anderson has designed an exclusive genderless capsule collection for the site.
The capsule is made up of 10 pieces, including ready-to-wear items, handbags and footwear. The designs were inspired by archival pieces and themes from the designer’s previous collections. Speaking to WWD about the gender-fluid collection, Anderson – who was worked with Yoox since 2011 – said, “I remember when Yoox first approached us about doing something for their 20th anniversary and I thought it would be interesting to do something that looked at things we have in the past at JW Anderson. We really looked at what we thought would make sense for the capsule and created some asymmetric pieces, a shirt dress and a skirt, and a patchwork trench coat. Patchwork is a recurring JW Anderson code and I think the colour palette feels very British in a way and Britishness is part of our DNA.”
A neutral striped hoodie is sure to catch the attention of loungewear lovers – or those who are planning their return-to-work wardrobes and want comfort to be key after months of working from home – whilst the silk shirting will work for any and every occasion. The slip-on backless loafer is an excellent piece of transition footwear, too.
The JW Anderson genderless capsule collection for Yoox launches on June 18.
