Uniqlo’s recurring collaboration with French fashion brand Ines de la Fressenge continues this week with their Spring/Summer collection launch. This comes after successful Uniqlo collabs with renowned designers like Jil Sander, JW Anderson, Undercover, and more recently Marimekko. The Japanese mega-retailer has worked with Ines de la Fressange since 2018 to create collections that perfectly embody the idea of “French chic.” The latest collection for the warmer months takes on a theme: “1924: Essential memories live on.”
1924 is the year France hosted the Olympics, with the summer Olympic opening ceremony taking place in Paris. Thus, there is a sportswear theme here. The collaboration has once again resulted in a complete clothing and accessories collection. There’s everything from blazers, sweaters and blouses to dresses, scarves and bags.
Made for all
Some key pieces include the argyle print V-neck sweaters ($49.90), knitted jacket ($59.90), rayon crepe tie long sleeve blouses ($39.90) and wrap short sleeve dresses ($59.90), and open collar short sleeve shirts ($39.90). There’s also a pretty cool tracksuit (jacket, $59.90 and pants, $39.90) and beautiful pointelle crew necks ($29.90) and cardigans ($39.90). On the accessories front there are beautiful silk scarves ($29.90), fedoras ($29.90), vintage narrow belts ($39.90) and enamel mini backpacks ($39.90).
