Coming Soon To A Uniqlo Near You: Charlotte Ronson-------
Uniqlo, like its fellow fast-fashion megaliths H&M and Target, has a long history of collaborating with designers; its Designer Invitation Project brings together wide-ranging talents together under one umbrella label. The latest additions to the Japanese retailer’s guest-star roster are Charlotte Ronson, Vena Cava, and Costello Tagliapietra, whose six-piece capsules debut this Spring.
For Ronson’s line, the New York-based designer told Style.com she was thinking of seaside retreats. The summer dresses, in nautical stripe and floral prints, have “lots of coastal countryside influences and nautical elements,” Ronson said. “They’re relaxed, easy to wear, sort of fun and flirty.” Her personal favorite is the lace-up tank dress at left. It goes on sale at all Uniqlo locations this May, along with a three-quarter-sleeve drawstring-waist dress, a sailboat-print halter top, and a casual T-shirt dress with a henley front, all priced at $29.50 each.
