UNIQLO released a special 2015 Fall Winter collection created in collaboration with Ines de la Fressange, which is available at all UNIQLO stores across Japan and online.
Select stores will carry the collection pieces on October 16 and availability of the line will vary. Design Director of UNIQLO Naoki Takizawa worked with Ines to merge the brand’s LifeWear concept with the Ines’ unique sense of style, rooted in refined feminine beauty and authentic quality. The collection is inspired by the concept of sophisticated femininity that film directors Francois Truffaut and Jean-Lu Godard so famously explored. Ines gravitated towards the deep forest greens and vin chaud from the first and warm wine that are Fall and Winter essentials in France. She merged nostalgia with fresh impressions for various sweaters that accentuate the feminine form. By reviving vintage ski sweaters with cable knitting, Nordic patterns, and her beloved fawn motif, the collection started to form.
The collection also includes garments using wool and other natural fabrics in styles and colors that go with winter ski and snowscapes as well as thick and cozy sweaters perfect for those settings. The sweaters will feature jacquard patterns and cable knits to make them fashionable. The jackets for this season will hold on to traditional tailoring, while offering the modern comforts that women today are looking for.
