Adding to its line of creative partnerships, UNIQLO will be collaborating with Finnish design house Marimekko on a limited edition women’s apparel collection. The collection will marry Marimekko’s bold prints with Uniqlo’s functional Lifewear clothing, embodying a shared commitment by the two companies to enhance the daily living of their customers.
We’ve already touched on the topic of brightening up our work closet with brighter colours and splashes of prints before. So it goes without saying that we’re super stoked about this.
The line features prints designed by Maija Louekari, one of Marimekko’s best known illustrators and print designers, and is inspired by nature and urban lifestyle. The nine-item collection comprises of tops, dresses, pants, sneakers and bags — basics and staples that echo the quality and comfort of UNIQLO’s casual street style. Tessellated flowers, an explosion of polka dots and striking visual imagery adorn short sleeve tees, wide leg cropped pants and shift dresses aplenty.
The new collection will be only available only for a limited time, and will launch in all UNIQLO stores and online on the UNIQLO webstore, starting from Mar 30 onwards.
