Ines de la Fressange returns with a new Uniqlo ready-to-wear collab for SS18
The Japanese brand has announced the launch, February 15, of a new ready-to-wear collection from Ines de la Fressange and Uniqlo special projects design director Naoki Takizawa. For the first time, a line of pyjamas will join ready-to-wear pieces in the collection.
The creative ties between Ines de la Fressange and Uniqlo seem built to last, since the ready-to-wear brand and the model-turned-designer are about to drop their ninth joint womenswear collection, with a new collab for the spring/summer 2018 season.
While this latest project once again seeks to combine chic Parisian style -- mixing femininity and comfort -- with Uniqlo's LifeWear philosophy, this season's offering draws inspiration from the landscapes of port towns, between land and sea, with pieces and colors channeling breezy summer vibes.
Cobalt blue, red, white and beige are key colors in this 82-piece collection, which includes a line of pyjamas. The collection also features a multitude of prints and motifs, often graphic or geometric in style. Stripes, classic checks, gingham checks and spots take center stage, seen on skirt, a dress, a top and 7/8 length pants.
Highlights from this latest collab include gingham cotton parkas, sixties-inspired frilly wrap-front dresses and casual pants.
The spring/summer 2018 collab is due out from February 15 in Uniqlo stores and online at www.uniqlo.com
