Carine Roitfeld and Uniqlo Announce a Second Collection
If history repeats itself, this is going to be good. Really good.
Just when you thought model Gigi Hadid’s spring collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger was the most exciting news in the world of fashion partnerships as of late, Uniqlo has us in even more of a tizzy about spring. Following the immense popularity of its first collection with Carine Roitfeld, the Japanese retailer has just announced its second collection with the French editor, stylist and international fashion icon as part of their ongoing collaboration.
Earlier this year, Roitfeld partnered with the retailer to develop a 40-piece collection which flew off shelves. Now they're poised for the same measure of success with their newest collection of clothing and accessories, inspired by Roitfeld’s signature minimalist aesthetic, set to hit stores and online on Feb. 11.
Boasting military influences (with some of Roitfeld’s favorite prints, like leopard, thrown in for good measure), the collection, which ranges from $10-$120, encompasses everything from curve-hugging pencil skirts to lace-trimmed slips, tailored blazers and snakeskin-embossed totes. Simply put: It’s every wardrobe staple you’ll need for spring to carry you from work into the weekend.
Roitfeld, the former editor-in-chief of French Vogue and the force behind CR Fashion Book, is the latest high-profile name to be tapped by Uniqlo, which has collaborated with the likes of Jil Sander and Christophe Lemaire in the past.
