Well-loved lifestyle fashion brand, UNIQLO will be launching its first-ever collection with Italian luxury fashion brand, MARNI in late June 2022.
Some may think that the styles of these two brands are on the opposite end and that is what makes this collection special. This collaboration has produced a collection that is bold and brimming with playfulness, in a distinctively MARNI style.
Yukihiro Katsuta, Fast Retailing Group Senior Executive Officer and Head of R&D for UNIQLO, commented, “We are proud of how this collaboration with MARNI has produced a collection for a new era and a new season that allows everyone to experience the joy of wearing clothes. The UNIQLO philosophy of clothing that is simple, high quality, functional, and ingenious in detail, imbued with MARNI’s creative vitality, has produced bold and innovative LifeWear. I am extremely pleased that we are able to offer this essential LifeWear collection that accentuates individual character and feelings in a positive way.”
The collection is a combination of functionality, simplicity and fabric innovation of UNIQLO’s LifeWear with MARNI’s unique sensibility for colours, shapes and prints as UNIQLO and MARNI playfully explore the clash between purity and chaos.
The staple items of UNIQLO provide a blank canvas for the distinctive use of colour that is synonymous with MARNI, along with pop-style, warm graphic prints created especially for this collection presented in larger and smaller iterations in an arresting play on proportions.
“I’ve been hugely excited about this collaboration since the start. Throughout the whole process we have always championed UNIQLO’s ethos and the integrity that lies behind the brand’s vision, giving our interpretation of UNIQLO’s LifeWear through a slightly out-of-the- box proposition that combines impeccably crafted clothes with MARNI’s offbeat and life-embracing spirit. I really hope that wearers feel good; that they feel themselves; that they feel free.” Francesco Risso, Creative Director at MARNI, Said.
There are 20 items to look forward to. The BLOCKTECH Coat, and Pyjama Set with a drape that seems to flow, can be enjoyed by men and women of all ages while the MEN’S line, includes a Tailored Jacket and Pants with a distinctively MARNI touch.
The Pocketable Parka in a supple nylon material is an all-purpose item that pairs well with swim shorts for an active and stylish summer.
Other item includes Open Collar Short Sleeve Pleated Dress, MARNI Socks, Pleated Sleeveless Blouse and more.
The full collection will be available at Orchard Central Global Flagship, ION Orchard, Tampines Mall, 51@AMK and online at UNIQLO.com.
