Uniqlo has announced the Fall/Winter 2015 launch of the Carine Roitfeld Collection, a collaboration with Carine Roitfeld, founder and editor-in-chief of the CR Fashion Book.

The new women’s line reflects Roitfeld’s broad experience with numerous designers and creators to bring new styles to the world. The new collection is based on UNIQLO’s LifeWear high quality clothing that promotes comfort and is available at reasonable prices. The designs were overseen by Naoki Takizawa, Uniqlo Design Director, and it includes about 40 items from stylish outer to feminine innerwear. The collection will be available at Uniqlo flagship stores worldwide and through the online store from the end of October 2015.

Commenting on the announcement, Carine Roitfeld said: “I feel joy at creating new mode expressions. I am constantly asking myself what these are, and creating new clothing within the Uniqlo LifeWear concept is a great challenge. I started from the idea of clothes that I would want to wear myself, and developed this into clothes that anyone would want to wear, a woman’s ideal of clothes that make her feel transformed when she wears them.”

Naoki Takizawa, Uniqlo design director said: “Carine goes to see collections all around the world, and the visuals that emerge from this relentless pursuit of leading edge fashion have had a tremendous influence on the fashion industry. I believe that a new type of LifeWear will be created through her work.”

Tadashi Yanai, Fast Retailing chairman, president and CEO, said: “Ms. Roitfeld is a charismatic fashion editor and influential figure in the fashion world, and we are extremely happy to present this collection with her as our collaborative partner. Uniqlo’s aim is to create everyday clothing that is functional, comfortable, and reasonably priced. I am pleased that this new collection will allow us to present our customers worldwide with a new type of Uniqlo LifeWear.”
