Charlotte Ronson for Uniqlo
Remember last year, I blogged about Uniqlo's collaborations with Japanese labels for its Designers Invitation Project? Well, this year it's teamed up with two of them again – Zechia and Suzuki Takayuki – along with more home-grown talent in the form of Nine, Theatre Products, Double Standard and Tiny Dinosaur.
The project also includes collaborations with CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists Vena Cava (remember their 2009 collaboration with Gap?) and Costello Tagliapietra. But the biggest draw, surely, is New York designer Charlotte Ronson (aka musicians Mark and Samantha Ronson's sister), whose collection for Uniqlo launches tomorrow.
With on-trend ditsy prints (such as the fun and flirty dress below) and nautical stripes and motifs (above), pieces are priced at a reasonable £24.99. Easy-to-wear casuals never looked so good.
