On Thursday, February 25, Uniqlo hosted an event at their Flagship store in New York City to celebrate the launch of their new UNIQLOxHanaTajima line. Hana Tajima is a UK based clothing designer whose new Uniqlo line fuses “traditional values and superlative comfort.” The clothes are modern, effortless updates on iconic shapes, such as the hijab, jubbah, and kebaya. Hana’s goal is to combine comfort, culture, and style with this new collection. Hana says of the collection, “We wanted to create a collection for women who appreciate modesty as a lifestyle, as well as a broader international audience. It is relaxed, and can be mixed and matched to enhance style.”
At the event, guests were treated to a special performance by Yuna Zarai, a Malaysian singer-songwriter who’s the face of the new campaign, and a DJ set by Jer-Meyn. Yuna performed an acoustic version of her new single, “Places To Go.” Guests also enjoyed hor d’oeuvres courtesy of Uniqlo, and exclusive early access to buy the collection.
We also love the UNIQLO x Lemaire collaboration. With nautical jackets, stripes and neutral tones it was clear the theme of this collection is Paris Pacific. Casual slim-fit pants and sports coats for the guys and nice cropped polos and pleated skirts for the women. The colors of this collection are great for the spring season and are sure to help anyone stand out with these lightweight, sporty pieces.
