This is the second collection that Ines de la Fressange has created for Uniqlo (last year’s was snapped up – I know that because I snapped most of it!) and it’s aimed at women who want stylish every-day clothes. It’s an extremely well streamlined edit – sharp in look, soft on wear, and classic without being the least bit boring.
At 57 Ines de la Fressange is knocking it out of the park in the style stakes; the collection includes fitted tweed jackets, navy trench coats (with a hidden, warm lining), a white cashmere hoodie (first on my list) and wool blend pea coats. She’s got a little bit of a thing going on for polka dots which I’m not sure I share, but it’s such a tight collection, you could walk in and pick out an outfit in about five minutes flat, confident that it’s all going to co-ordinate.
I love that Uniqlo have redefined the ‘classic’ look with this – it’s truly any-age wear; my daughter could wear this and so could my mum.
The new collection launches today, but items are gradually filtering through in the next couple of months so keep checking back HERE.
