Compared to the long anticipated release of Kanye West and adidas's Yeezy Season 1 today, and the ongoing hype machine for Balmain x H&M, Carine Roitfeld's collection with Uniqlo is the calm in the eye of the storm. The former Vogue editor's refined and minimalist collection with the retailer released this morning and there's still plenty of good pieces left.
The one item that sold out immediately was the leopard print coat, drawing the ire of many a Twitter user. Lower-priced items, like the belts, are also out of stock. The items that won't last much longer, according to Uniqlo's website, are the leopard print faux fur coat, a shiny enamel coat, and the collection's lace camisoles. There's also low stock notifications on two Roitfeld staples: a pencil skirt and a basic black button-up shirt. Surprisingly, the classic and reasonably priced double-breasted coats are still available in a wide range of sizes. Instead, customers have trended toward the dress styles — only the jersey three-quarter sleeves dress is left — and a long-sleeve sweater bodysuit, which are currently sold out.
