Japanese brand UNIQLO has always been a source of simplicity and quality when it comes to fashion. Their Lifewear collections always come with elegance and comfort. For the 2020 Spring/Summer collection, Uniqlo has partnered with top International model Ines De La Fressange.
Ines was born in France and is widely known as the muse of several top fashion houses. In 2013, she relaunched her own brand, Ines de la Fressange Paris, and continues to embody modern Parisian chic as an art director. She believes that women can dress comfortably and still reveal their beauty.
Uniqlo’s new collaboration with Ines features wardrobe essentials inspired by 1920s Paris fashion. The 54-piece 1924-themed collection was launched last January 31 and will only be available at the Uniqlo Flagship Store, Glorietta 5, Makati City and through UNIQLO.com. Some of the items will also be available at all stores nationwide.
Ines began exploring ideas for the 20SS collection to pay homage to women from every era by celebrating traditional values through styling that is enduringly contemporary. The line comprises the following three themes.
Paris: Timeless sports styling
Paris held the Summer Olympics in 1924, and sports styling that appeared in those games remains attractively modern. The collection features items with masculine looks, including Tilden knitwear and jersey pants with white and green key colors.
Gardians: Inspired by French cowboy clothing
Items are inspired by the clothing of ‘Gardians,’ French for cowboys, in Arles. Ines has frequently visited this city in the Provence region of southern France over the past 30 years. The strong sunlight and shadow contrasts in that locale influenced such leading artists as Picasso and Vincent Van Gogh, and are reflected in the collection’s coordination of black and white items in masculine styling, including pants and long shirts.
Muses: Dresses for relaxing outdoors
The 1920s were a time of great progress for women, who began enjoying styling that reflected newfound freedoms. The range features light dresses with ruffles and prints in relaxing silhouettes
