Inès de la Fressange—French Aristocrat—Hits the High Street With Uniqlo

-------

Uniqlo

We love a high-low mix, but even we were (pleasantly) surprised by Uniqlo’s latest collaboration. The Telegraph reports that Inès de la Fressange—French aristocrat, former muse to Karl Lagerfeld, and universal purveyor of good taste—is taking her “democratic” sartorial approach to the high-street powerhouse.

In our opinion, the collaboration is actually a perfect fit. Last year De la Fressange wrote her best-selling fashion guide, Parisian Chic, to share her intuitive style with the masses. Now they can practically shop her closet. Every piece in the collection has an effortless, Left Bank vibe, like floral shirtdresses, wrap cardigans, and snug sweaters. “I have a way of wearing clothes, yes, but we are selling that,” she told the Telegraph. “Because some people hate shopping and hate fashion. With this collection everything can be mixed up for anyone.”

Inès de la Fressange for Uniqlo will be available in stores beginning March 20. For more information, visit uniqlo.co.uk.
