It’s a London thang. You live there for aeons, you get used to the dependable stores and brands and then…you move. Albeit for a short time.
One of those brands that every fashion industry person worth their proverbial Isabel Marant skinnies will tell you is that Uniqlo is indispensable. Less expensive, more reliable and ever so discreet as Cos, it’s the go-to store for tees, ultra light down jackets, cashmere and other build up wardrobe basics. I love it. So why are there none in the North? And by the North, I mean Scotland.
To rub salt in the wound, Uniqlo have just announced a collaboration launching October 2015 with fashion icon, Carine Roitfeld. queen Ex French Vogue editor and founder & editor-in-chief of the CR Fashion Book.
The collection that includes over 40 pieces, will be available throughout 40 flagship stores and online. Overseen by Uniqlo design director, Naoki Takizawa with Ms Roitfeld’s indisputable touch of Parisienne edge, this will be a collection of inevitable must-have items.
Roitfeld says of her collaboration, “I started from the idea of clothes that I would want to wear myself, and developed this into clothes that anyone would want to wear, a woman’s ideal of clothes that make her feel transformed when she wears them’.
Put it in your diaries, people.
