As we approach autumn, hands up who else is guilty of already daydreaming about next summer at their desks?
But with the new season comes a whole new wardrobe (well, that’s our motto anyway). So in order to remind you that autumn isn’t all that bad, we’ve rounded up the best fashion collaborations on our radar this season.
Remind us when payday is again?
JW Anderson x Uniqlo
If you haven’t already purchased a sartorial slice of the JW Anderson x Uniqlo collaboration then what are you waiting for? The Belfast-born CSM alumnus is famed for gender-fluid silhouettes and a minimal aesthetic, so what better place than Uniqlo to launch a collab?
We have our eyes on the stencil-effect t-shirts on offer in both black and white and the tartan puffer jacket is sure to keep us wrapped up this winter. But having launched earlier this month, it’s a race against the clock to bag the best buys. Race you there…
Ashish x River Island
Yes, in case you weren’t already aware Ashish teamed up with high street giant River Island for a one-of-a-kind collaboration this month. The exclusive 15-piece line landed in stores last week but after double checking the website, we are pleased to announce that there’s still chance to invest.
The self-proclaimed ‘King of Sequins’ certainly worked his sartorial magic this season and introduced the street style pack to a wardrobe built on sportswear-meets-high-fashion. And it ticks all the boxes. With gender-neutral designs, sleeping bag effect puffer jackets and highly Instagrammable slogan knits, what more is there to love? And of course, you can’t call it Ashish without the sequins. So, why not invest in a nineties-style slip this season?
Described as ‘relaxed enough to slouch around the house in, yet stylish enough to be taken out’, this is a collection which is truly transeasonal. What more of an excuse do you need to invest?
Eudon Choi x John Lewis
Still on the hunt for this season’s must-have coat? Look no further. London Fashion Week regular Eudon Choi launched an exclusive line for John Lewis earlier this month and if you haven’t checked it out yet, set aside your lunch break for a good old browse. You won’t regret it…
Launched as part of the Modern Rarity luxury line at the high street retailer, Eudon Choi’s collection features double-breasted tailoring and highly covetable checks aplenty.
Head to the website now for a last chance to bag one of this season’s most sought after coats. See you there.
Erdem x H&M
We have to admit, we didn’t think that anything could possibly make us wish that winter would hurry up already but then the Erdem x H&M collaboration was announced. And it’s safe to say, we cannot wait. Pack up your camping supplies, as a lengthy queue come launch day is inevitable. Especially after actress Emma Stone gave us a sneak preview of the upcoming collab in a printed two-piece from the collection…

Swedish fashion giant H&M never fails to draw mass crowds (remember when Maison Martin Margiela launched a collab?) and we’re not surprised. With a CV boasting past collaborators such as Alexander Wang, Balmain and Kenzo, there’s nothing the brand can’t do.
And with royal backing (the Duchess of Cambridge is an unofficial advertisement for Erdem), we have high hopes for the upcoming collaboration.
Keep 2nd November free, people.
Preen x LK Bennett
Another collaboration set to receive the royal stamp of approval is the work of Preen and LK Bennett. Yes, two of Kate Middleton’s most cherished labels have teamed up for a debut read-to-wear line.
#LKBxPreen // This week we celebrated our first ever ready-to-wear collaboration, together with a host of VIPs and special guests. A Q&A by Stylist Martha Ward with Preen design duo Justin Thornton & Thea Bregazzi was one of the many highlights, in which they shared their creative inspiration behind the collection; the floral watercolours of Scottish artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh / To be the first to hear when the collaboration launches, please register your interest via the link in our Bio.

Inspired by Scottish artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the collection is sure to be a celebration of autumnal florals, sequins and highly covetable prints.
