Uniqlo’s New Collection With This Former Hermès Designer Is So, So Good
Sure, we’re currently tunneling through miles-high snow piles, hopscotching over deceptively deep puddles, and doing our very best to avoid the muddy slush that’s taken over our city. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still obsess over lightweight, airy spring fashion. And while the frothiness of Erdem and the retro, motley maximalism of Gucci tickle our fancies, the collection we’re currently adoring is far more accessible: Uniqlo’s new spring line.
The Japanese retailer, which exploded onto the Philly shopping scene in 2014, is once again collaborating with former Hermès designer Christophe Lemaire. (Their fall collection, consisting of simple sweaters and classic, understated garments, was wildly successful.) Expect the same with the spring/summer line, set to launch in stores and online on March 4th.According to Fashionista, the spring collection was “inspired by summer vacations in France during the ’60s.” The gently summery collection is, in fact, perfect for vacations: high-waisted, wide-legged trousers; soft, roomy tunics; lightweight cotton poplin capes and shirtdresses; and belted smock dresses.
There’s still no word on exact pricing for items, but mark the release date in your calendars and start strategizing now because, iff the fall collab with Lemaire was any indication, these clothes are going to sell out fast. See the entire collection below to start whittling down your must-haves.
