If you were a fan of the last two Uniqlo collaborations with Carine Roitfeld — the founding editor-in-chief of CR Fashion Book and former EIC of Vogue Paris — you’ll soon be treated to round three.
This time around, Roitfeld and Uniqlo’s design director Naoki Takizawa played heavily with different textures and fits, introducing pieces like faux fur bomber jackets, tweed skirts, and all-over-shearling tote bags.
Need more to get excited about? According to a promotional video starring the design duo, this is Roitfeld’s favorite collection yet.
This fall’s collection offers 43 styles split between four distinctive themes: “Military Mix” takes on finely-tailored silhouettes, high-buttoned collars, and camo prints; “Fit and Flare” explores multiple variations of the classic fitted waist and flared line skirt in materials like wool and tweed; “Black Wardrobe” consists of sharp standout pieces like wide leg wool-blend trousers and a leather trench; and finally, “Leopard Lover” plays with silk separates and soft-to-the-touch faux furs.
The best part of Uniqlo’s always oft-regarded collaborations are the prices, and this one is (thankfully) no different. The collection of accessories, separates, and outerwear caps off at $200 for a military-inspired wool blend coat, and starts just below the $10 mark with a handful of sheer patterned tights.
