We can’t get enough of Uniqlo. When the brand isn’t busy partnering with V for our Class of 2018, they’re designing Keith Haring t-shirts for the MoMA, or giving grants to emerging artists to revamp New York City’s public parks, just to name a couple.

The fast fashion mogul’s latest venture is it’s second collab with JW Anderson, launching officially on UNIQLO.com on April 19 (at 9pm EST, so you can go ahead and add it to your Google calendars now), and in stores on April 20. The collection features over 30 items in women’s, men’s, and unisex styles, and if the prices are similar to JW x Uniqlo 1.0, we can expect the range to be anywhere from $3 to $60. The first collaboration flew off the shelves, with its brightly striped knits, playful plaids, and utility coats. Version 2.0 should be expected to come with lots of denim, stripes, and other nautical vibes from the looks of the promotional imagery.

Jonathan Anderson, designer behind JW, says of the collection, “I’m looking for this idea of ‘British Summer,” but also something reminiscent of the “1950’s subcultural movement”. Anderson is clearly taking this collaboration from the English countryside to Brighton beach. That paints a very clear picture of what we can expect come April. With JW Anderson’s classic style, and Uniqlo’s technical fabrics, we’re sure to get yet another creative collaboration from these two brands.
