UNIQLO have announced the Spring Summer 2015 launch of the Carine Roitfeld Collection, a collaboration with Carine Roitfeld, founder and editor-in-chief of the CR Fashion Book. This new women’s line reflects Ms. Roitfeld’s broad experience with numerous designers and creators to bring new styles to the world.
More than exceptional design, the new collection is based on UNIQLO’s LifeWear – innovative, high quality clothing that promotes comfort and is available at reasonable prices. The designs were overseen by Naoki Takizawa, UNIQLO Design Director, and it includes about 40 items from stylish outer to feminine innerwear. The collection will be available from the end of October 2015.
“I feel joy at creating new mode expressions,” said Roitfeld. “I am constantly asking myself what these are, and creating new clothing within the UNIQLO LifeWear concept is a great challenge. 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.”
Naoki Takizawa, UNIQLO Design Director said, “Carine goes to see collections all around the world, and the visuals that emerge from this relentless pursuit of leading edge fashion have had a tremendous influence on the fashion industry. The clothing depicted in these fresh and innovative visuals, produced with the fashion world’s most influential creators, seems somehow triumphant. I believe that a new type of LifeWear will be created through her work.”
Tadashi Yanai, Fast Retailing Chairman, President & CEO, said, “Ms. Roitfeld is a charismatic fashion editor and influential figure in the fashion world, and we are extremely happy to present this collection with her as our collaborative partner. UNIQLO’s aim is to create everyday clothing that is functional, comfortable, and reasonably priced. I am pleased that this new collection will allow us to present our customers worldwide with a new type of UNIQLO LifeWear.”
