Uniqlo announces Carine Roitfeld collection for Fall Winter 2015
Carine Roitfield, who is the founder of CR Fashion book, as well as the global fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar internationally, is embarking on her second collection with Uniqlo. Kudos to the fashion editor!
Commenting on the announcement, Carine Roitfeld said, “I feel joy at creating new mode expressions. I am constantly asking myself what these are, and creating new clothing within the UNIQLO LifeWear concept is a great challenge. I started from the idea of clothes that I would want to wear myself, and developed this into clothes that anyone would want to wear, a woman’s ideal of clothes that make her feel transformed when she wears them”.
Naoki Takizawa, UNIQLO Design Director said, “Carine goes to see collections all around the world, and the visuals that emerge from this relentless pursuit of leading edge fashion have had a tremendous influence on the fashion industry. The clothing depicted in these fresh and innovative visuals, produced with the fashion world’s most influential creators, seems somehow triumphant. I believe that a new type of LifeWear will be created through her work”.
Tadashi Yanai, Fast Retailing Chairman, President & CEO, said, “Miss Roitfeld is a charismatic fashion editor and influential figure in the fashion world and we are extremely happy to present this collection with her as our collaborative partner. UNIQLO’s aim is to create everyday clothing that is functional, comfortable and reasonably priced. I am pleased that this new collection will allow us to present our customers worldwide with a new type of UNIQLO LifeWear”.
