Uniqlo is the latest company to get the creative juices flowing for Japan. The retailer has tapped friends and collaborators like Karl Lagerfeld, Lady Gaga, Nicola Formichetti, Nicole Kidman, and Alber Elbaz to design a new series of tees to benefit the Japanese Red Cross. That’s Lagerfeld’s (left), which retails for a mere $19.99. It’s the most affordable Kaiser you’re going to get until his Macy’s collection finally hits stores. [WWD]
Speaking of Formichetti, the stylist and Mugler creative director has just been announced as one of the designers for BOFFO’s new season of Building Fashion, which allows those without freestanding stores to create pop-up retail spaces. Last season, Waris Ahluwalia, Richard Chai, and Siki Im created their own shops at BOFFO’s west Chelsea space; this season, Formichetti, Irene Neuwirth, Patrik Ervell, Ohne Titel, and The Lake & Stars will make their (temporary) mark in Tribeca.

It’s hard to miss Topshop’s towering Soho flagship, but it’s easy to miss its latest addition—a secret shop inside, where collaboration collections from Meadham Kirchhoff, Pamela Love, and Ann-Sofie Back will be on offer. Happy hunting. [Racked]
And today in collaborations: Christopher Kane x London taxis? Odd but true—the London-based designer has adapted a starry print from his Resort ’11 collection to “wrap” London’s iconic black cabs. [Vogue U.K.]
