Carine Roitfeld is about to bring her chic, classically French sensibilities to Uniqlo. The editrix is teaming up with the Japanese retailer for a roughly 40-piece womenswear collection made to suit their LifeWear category.
LifeWear is Uniqlo’s line of functional, fashionable basics that help you build out a full wardrobe – without having to dispose of your pieces every couple months. Uniqlo’s current LifeWear collection includes Chino pants and shorts, oxfords, zip up hoodies and more.
“Creating new clothing within the Uniqlo LifeWear concept is a great challenge,” Roitfeld said. “I started from the idea of clothes that I would want to wear myself and developed this into clothes that anyone would want to wear, a woman’s ideal of clothes that make her feel transformed when she wears them.” And there are plenty of women who would love to dress like Carine, to adopt her effortlessly casual-yet-sophisticated aesthetic. Now all of us will have the chance.
The line is due to hit shelves in October, so start saving up now!
