Uniqlo is known for their clean, simple take on basics on a budget, and for collaborations with Balmain, Carine Roitfeld, and even Disney. But their newest collaboration, the Uniqlo x Lemaire collection, is the one to watch out for: Since its launch on Friday, the collection online has almost been sold out, Fashionista reports.
Walk into a New York City Uniqlo, and the effect is the same: Lines of people waiting, pieces have been mulled over, and you'd be lucky to come away with an item. I guess I'm waiting for the next shipment! While this collaboration is one that's been more under the radar, it's one that serious fashion lovers have been waiting for. Previewed earlier this summer, this collection full of comfy-chic pieces was long-anticipated by fans of Christopher Lemaire. I mean, gorgeous, clean, luxurious basics on a budget? Yeah, people were excited.
Then, shortly after in August, Uniqlo released select images from the collection, and the fashion world went wild. The minimalist looks got people hyped, especially the sleek sweaters and coats, retailing between $40-$200. So it comes as no surprise that it's almost completely sold out after its first weekend out. And for good reason — These pieces will elevate your wardrobe to Parisian levels. Below, check out the pieces we just have to have from what's left in stock. Hurry — these won't last long!
