Uniqlo has announced plans to collaborate with Parisian CR Fashion Book editor Carine Roitfeld. According to press:
The designs were overseen by Naoki Takizawa, Uniqlo design director, and it includes about 40 items from stylish outer to feminine innerwear. The collection will be available at Uniqlo flagship stores worldwide and through the online store from the end of October 2015.
Uniqlo is not new to the world of collaborations, but this one is its most splashy since its final installment with Jil Sander, which hit stores in Autumn 2015. Roitfeld’s aesthetic is synonymous with edgy, rock ‘n’ roll chic so it will be interesting to see how this collection is interpreted so that it appeals to and fits Uniqlo’s customer.
