Uniqlo's released photos of its upcoming collection with former Hermès creative director Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran, a collab that's been somewhat mysterious up until now. posted the ad campaign for the Uniqlo and Lemaire line, which will focus on "warm" and "very comfy" knits in lambswool and cashmere. Those are the exact words that Christophe Lemaire used to describe the collection, which will launch in stores and online in October.

"Basic is an overused term in fashion, but at the end of the day, it’s quite true, quite right," he told "Pieces that you need, pieces that you want—that’s what we tried to do." According to Vogue UK, the Uniqlo collab will include 30 women's styles and 25 men's styles priced from around $24 to $200.
