Christophe Lemaire, once the Hérmes designer, has recently taken on the role of Artistic Director of UNIQLO, who are about to launch their fall/winter 16 collection, titled UNIQLO U.
The collection consists of 87 new pieces; 52 women’s and 35 men’s. The line-up introduces a ‘basic’ collection of sweatshirts, t-shirts, hoodies, polos, trousers and smart blazers, shirts and outerwear. In addition to this, UNIQLO is releasing a scarf, a sling bag and mittens, all of which following a quilted trend.
The colour palette holds tones of greys, burgundies, blues, greens and browns; a very fall/winter appropriate assortment.
