Over the weekend I got an email about a new collection that Uniqlo will be releasing this spring. It is a collaboration collection with Ines de la Fressange, former model and now artistic director of her eponymous line. It is slated to be released starting March 17 and throughout until May 2014. It is French-influenced in that the clothes are almost androgynous in their simplicity, but retain an easy femininity; the dresses flow and hug curves but seem un-fussy, and there are oxford shirts and light linen and silk shirts to last for days. Here are a few pieces I’m excited to see:
I probably don’t really need any more button-downs but I’m hunting for an oversized white one and I just like the cool blue of the chambray.
Left: Soutien Collar Coat, right: Linen Cotton Long Sleeve Long Jacket.
I like that the linen jacket almost looks like a shirtdress, and that soutien collar coat is reminiscent of a trench coat but isn’t double breasted.
I’m excited about this dress. It’s been a while since I’ve tried a wrap-style dress and I remember feeling the need to wear Spanx just to smooth out the hip/stomach area. I hope this dress can look good without supportive garments because that’s another purchase just to make a dress work.
You can view the rest of the lineup here. Tell me what you think. Have you got any favorites you want to see?
