UNIQLO Launches Fall Winter 2014 Collection

Last September 26, 2014, Global fashion giant UNIQLO unveils its second collaboration with French fashion icon, Ines de la Fressange as part of its Fall/Winter 2014 collection. Held at 3rd floor, Uniqlo Store, Megamall Fashion Hall.

Inspired by the success of the first collaboration for Spring Summer 2014, the second collection is bigger and remains true to the esprit and elegance of the first.

Commenting on the second collaboration line, Ines de la Fressange said, “I wanted to retain the spirit we created in the Spring Summer collection. I love things that are unadorned, genuine, and comfortable to wear. For the Fall Winter items, I wanted to create lovely things that have the same elegance. One of the traditional European fabrics I wanted to include was tweed. With coats and jackets, the fabric and cut are important, and it was a real treat for me to be able to incorporate playful details and enjoy styling the clothing freely."

Design Director Naoki Takizawa said, “Like the streets of Paris, where novelty and beauty can be found in the constant blending of diverse elements throughout the city’s long history, this is a collection of essential apparel that quietly radiates through the styling. It is clothing that is simple, but with playfulness that prompts a smile. It is clothing that brings you back to your natural self just by wearing it. Talking with Ines, I begin to see clothing that anticipates the next era. It then starts to overlap with UNIQLO’s LifeWear concept.

The collaboration line is an iteration of UNIQLO’s LifeWear, aimed at enriching lives through quality clothing. Rather than following trends, it focuses on what Ines herself wears, to look and feel great. Each detail, from the height of the waist and opening of the neckline to overall fit, has been carefully refined through a long fitting process with Ines herself, to create a perfectly balance collection.

Featuring smartly cut shirts, classic trench and tweed coats, casual cashmeres, chic trousers and Ines’ favorites, like the elegant tuxedo jacket and simple silk dresses, each piece translates easily from day to night.  And each is a great addition to any woman’s, but most especially a working woman’s wardrobe.  The collection’s understated elegance is predicted to resonate across women of all ages and cultures.  A true testament to UNIQLO’s global fashion ability.
