Here’s a preview of some of the range’s key pieces
From regular collections from French model-turned-designer Ines de la Fressange to J.W Anderson‘s recent contribution of the ideal winter wardrobe, Japanese retail giant Uniqlo certainly has a knack for convincing high-end designers to dabble in the affordable clothing arena.
And joining in on the fray to create Uniqlo’s first Resort Wear Collection is Bottega Veneta creative director Tomas Maier.
Of dark hues and vibrant pops of colours, the women collection features easy, breezy silhouettes such as flowy chiffon dresses and loose soft cotton shirts, fitted and industrial pieces like the flight jacket in red, and a range of playful bikinis in bubblegum hues. The men’s range includes various jackets, short-sleeve polos, graphic tees, and swim shorts.
“Our new collection is designed to work in many different ways. Beach attire can turn into loungewear, casual cover-ups paired with polo shirts can easily be worn in town – this is the concept of my brand,” said Maier in a press statement. “Things work in many ways. Even if bought for a special trip or occasion the customer will soon discover these garments adapt to a year-round life.”
Prices range from $14.90 for a pair of swim shorts to $129.90 for a cashmere sweater.
