Slowly but surely, more bits of information regarding Uniqlo's upcoming collaboration with Christophe Lemaire is making its way onto the internet. In the latest news, Uniqlo just released preview photos today of the collab, which is definitely living up to the cozy, fall-friendly vibe that the ads gave off last month. The collab is set to be released in early October, although an actual date has yet to be defined.
The collab will consist of 30 women's products and 25 men's products. The tentative price range falls into the following categories: shirts are $39.90–$49.90, knits are $49.90–$159.90, outerwear is $129.90–$199.90, pants are $59.90–$89.90, skirts are $59.90, dresses are $49.90–$129.90, jackets are $69.90–$169.90, and basic tops are $24.90–$39.90. (The press release notes that these prices are subject to change before launch, though.)
In a statement, Lemaire expressed hope that the collaboration will make his designs more accessible to more people. "This collection is made for everybody," Lemaire explained. "We think it is accessible and comprehensive. The materials are soft and appealing. The collection focuses on the wearer, making it easy, we hope, for anyone to coordinate items simply and fashionably."
