Carine Roitfeld presented her Uniqlo collection during Paris Fashion Week yesterday, and the photos from the presentation give us an even closer look at the collab's leopard print coats, pencil skirts, and fishnet stockings. Of course, Roitfeld's 40-piece line has sex appeal, but turns out it's also surprisingly practical. "There are pockets everywhere, including on tight-fitting skirts. It’s a no-brainer but I love it," she told WWD.
The Guardian predicted that this collab will be a hit. "Because it is based on an actual woman’s actual wardrobe, it is brilliantly easy to wear together: the general mood among fashion journalists at the preview was ‘how about we just buy the lot and wear nothing else?'" Jess Cartner-Morley wrote.
Stand-out pieces include a tomboy-ish herringbone tweed coat, a faux-leather pencil skirt with eyelets, that leopard print coat, a skinny scarf, and a shrunken black sweater with a ballerina neckline. WWD reports that the worldwide launch date for the Carine Roitfeld collection for Uniqlo is October 28th.
