Today is the last day of March, which means it's time to awaken your summer spirit! If you still need a push, Uniqlo has something up its sleeve that will surely do the trick. The Japanese retail brand raises the bar yet again, as it introduces three of its new collaborations which, if we may say, are nothing short of awesome. You know we love a good collab, and this time, there's art, an artist, and a fashion icon that we can't wait to both share with you and eagerly get our hands on.
INÈS DE LA FRESSANGE
You've been hearing about the Parisian chic style around, but you won't know the true essence of the trend without meeting the style icon who embodies it to a T, Inès de la Fressange. "Parisian chic is an attitude, a style, and a way of being elegant without boundaries," says Inès, and with that, Uniqlo and the lovely lady came up with a collection consisting of four categories. Amp up your workwear with Petite Parisienne, enjoy the summer hues red, white, and blue with Blue, Blane, Parisienne, embody French chic style with classic black selection from ote Parisienne, and finally workout in style with Souffie de Parisienne.
i am OTHER
Uniqlo's UT T-shirt brand is getting an overhaul on its 12th year with creative director and street fashion icon, NIGO. The New Model T, as it is now called, includes 18 new collabs including what may be the coolest creative collective to hit the season, Pharrell Williams' i am Other. Who doesn't love Pharrell? Well, it's not us, and certainly not Uniqlo. The line will be available beginning mid-April. (Ed's Note: We'll surely be eyeing on those caps!)
Enjoy a taste of exceptional art by wearing Uniqlo! The launch of SPRZ NY, short for Surprise New York is the brand's way of creating something magical with the marriage of beautiful art and wearable clothing. Part of this project is a collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) where special edition designs will be released based on the works of artists namely Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Jack Pierson, Jaskcon Pollock, Lawrence Weiner, Ryan McGinness, and Sarah Morris. This colleciton is now available worldwide!
P.S You can also win a trip to New York city (for two!) for every P500 single receipt purchases of any of the shirts from the UT line. Convert it to a raffle ticket and drop in designated drop boxes until April 30, 2014! Good luck ladies!
