Are you ready for Uniqlo and Lemaire SS16?
We thought we were blessed when news of Uniqlo's collaboration with Lemaire for AW15 broke last year. Such perfect pairings are rare as unicorns and a second sighting? We marched straight out and spent a month's wages on lottery tickets.
So successful was the first collection that French designer Christophe Lemaire and partner Sarah Linh-Tran are honouring fans with a second coming. SS16 will launch on March 4 and will be available at Uniqlo stores in Fahrenheit 88, One Utama, MidValley Megamall and IOI City Mall.
"We focussed on flexible, versatile and lightweight pieces you can wear every day. The collection fulfills the need for light summer attire that you forget about once slipped on and which can be worn in the street, at work or at home," Lemaire explains. "The garments combine simple and relaxed lines with functional details inspired by sportswear."
Loose-fitting, simple silhouettes in tones of ginger, mahogany, blue/green (a Lemaire signature) and ash gray are accented with stark whites and blacks in a variety of cottons, making for the perfect transitional wardrobe.
"Every item combines elegance with moderate relaxation and comfort for modern, advanced wardrobe mainstays," says Lemaire. "The collection balances strength, tranquility and softness to underscore wearer personalities, perfecting volumes and silhouettes so they remain eternally attractive."
