UNIQLO’s newly appointed artistic director Christophe Lemaire has unveiled his very first fall collection, which sees Tokyo meet Paris on a huge assortment of basics that are anything but basic.
The former Hérmes designer’s more flamboyant Parisian touch is felt across the typically technical and minimalistic UNIQLO offerings. The range is extensive, including 87 different items (52 women’s and 35 men’s,) each in a variety of stunning seasonally-appropriate colorways.
As one might expect from Lemaire, trim sweaters feature heavily in the collection, but there’s also a glut of other pieces to go alongside them. Nicely tapered outerwear, smart blazers, and classic button-downs and trousers are all included, and of course, so are hoodies, polos and tees. Accessories wise, there’s a scarf, sling bag and pair of mittens, all of which are quilted.
The UNIQLO FW16 collection is set for release in stores and online tomorrow on September 30. Check out the collection above, and then watch the promo video below.
