UNIQLO and Lemaire

Host Bianca Valerio made this jacket look so good, I had to try it on myself!

Uniqlo is my uniform. When in doubt, I always find myself reaching for my classic Uniqlo pieces.  Call me a fangirl, but quality goods at affordable prices? Too good to pass up. My love for Japanese culture even trickles down to my most basic sartorial needs, including innerwear! These guys can definitely do no wrong when it comes to daily style essentials. So far, all of the Uniqlo in my closet have been holding up pretty well despite the usage frequency. To top it all off, they fit perfectly with my style aesthetic – simple, wearable, and straight-to-the-point. Like one style? Buy it in all colors. I’m sure you guys can relate!

Last October 1st, UNIQLO held an event to showcase their special collections and collaborations with international brands and designers. Ever since the news about the collaboration with French fashion designer Christophe Lemaire came out, I swore to myself I’d drag my lazy bum to the launch if ever I got invited. And I did, so here are some of the photos from the event!

Who says winter fashion can’t be bright and colorful?

The highlight of the night was the first look at the UNIQLO AND LEMAIRE collection. UNIQLO’s Lifewear concept, “Simple made better”, is perfectly represented by these refined, wearable pieces that are definitely going to last forever in your closet. When it comes to Uniqlo style and comfort, you know it’s going to be really good.

The UNIQLO AND LEMAIRE men’s and women’s collection will be available in SM Megamall and SM Aura, two out of Uniqlo’s four large stores starting October 2 until the end of Fall/Winter 2015.

A closer look at the whole collection. A perfect combination of effortless French style and Japanese minimalism.

I’m already done shopping for my UNIQLO AND LEMAIRE favorites as I type this, but I’m still thinking if I should go back to buy some pieces from the men’s collection. Uniqlo life is the life!

Congratulations UNIQLO Philippines on the successful launch! Hope you guys can check out the latest UNIQLO AND LEMAIRE collection before stocks run out!

UNIQLO and LEMAIRE have come together to offer timeless elegance to everyday essentials that are made of the most carefully selected materials. The collection brings a sense of refined, yet friendly confidence to pieces that you can wear every day on any occasion. This is LifeWear elevated with style that fully respects the individual.

Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran commented, “The UNIQLO AND LEMAIRE collection is based on the philosophy shared by both UNIQLO and LEMAIRE of making high-quality clothing for everyday life. We focused not simply on enhancing design, but insisting on high quality in the materials as well, with the aim of creating clothing that is simple, beautiful and comfortable. Each item incorporates several ideas, and a single piece shows a different facet depending on how it is worn. This collection has been a valuable experience for us as the designers, and an exceptional collaboration. We hope that this collection will be a part of everyone’s life.”
