Jonathan Anderson has brought us to the English beach and the Fair Isle with his previous capsule collections for Uniqlo and his fifth outing with the Japanese giant sees him… laying out a picnic mat?The collection is replete with bucolic British motifs and tropes, such as gingham checks and generous use of patchworks, all done in Anderson’s signature colourful palette.

stores, as well as online. Above, some of our favourite picks:
