Following news of Christophe Lemaire’s appointment as Uniqlo artistic director, we finally get a look at the designer’s vision for the essential brand. Lemaire’s outing for the label is branded under Uniqlo U and based on form, function, and modern sophistication.
Utilitarian outerwear and smart knitwear are key aspects of the designer’s debut outing for the label. Previewing fall looks with a new campaign, staples include double face wool blend chesterfield coats, ultra light down compact jackets, cashmere blend turtleneck sweaters, blocktech parkas, and MA-1 bomber jackets. The anticipated Uniqlo U range hits stores October 14, 2016.
