UNIQLO has released of the second UNIQLO and MARNI collection. While MARNI has consistently produced imaginative, forward-thinking designs with its singular approach to fabric and colour, UNIQLO LifeWear is characterised by craftsmanship, technology, and simplicity. The most recent collection, created by fusing these two design concepts, adds colour and liveliness to everyday dressing while providing cosy warmth for winter days.
Yukihiro Katsuta, Fast Retailing Group Senior Executive Officer and Head of R&D for UNIQLO, stated “Last season, there was an overwhelming response to the first UNIQLO and MARNI collection, and a lot of customers could be seen wearing the items around town. It felt as though the collection matched the needs of people looking for fashion that allowed them to shake off the oppressive mood of recent years. The theme of this second collection was the joy of being wrapped up. This was expressed through the UNIQLO product synonymous with winter, HEATTECH; knits, which are in especially demand amidst customer feedback; and accessories. I hope customers will enjoy the high quality and creativity of the latest UNIQLO and MARNI collection and the artistry it brings to everyday wear.”
Layering that blends graphic designs, vibrant hues, and organic three-dimensional forms demonstrates MARNI’s ingenuity. Products from UNIQLO’s HEATTECH line, a wintertime classic, have been updated with psychedelic graphics and color-blocked patterns from the 1960s. Knits in vibrant green, orange, and saffron yellow may be styled over down coats with voluminous cocoon designs.
Warmth from head to toe is guaranteed with vests, sweaters, and balaclavas made of the same popcorn knit, this winter’s mainstay. The collection includes cashmere and mélange knit gloves and stoles in addition to matching mittens and beanies. Finding the ideal presents for the holiday season is made easier by the wide variety in this vibrant collection of colours and designs.
100% silk furoshiki scarves with hand-painted patterning makes the collection even more irresistible. Since the dawn of time, the art of wrapping with furoshiki, a traditional Japanese wrapping material, has played a significant role in Japanese culture, inspiring a vast array of wrapping methods. While the “flower petal wrapping” method, which generates a knot like a flower, is ideal for wrapping gifts for special people, the “watermelon wrapping” method created for transporting spherical things makes for a suitable little bag to carry tiny belongings like wallets and mobile phones. The furoshiki scarf’s applications are only constrained by your creativity.
MARNI Second Collection is now available exclusively at Fahrenheit 88 and online at www.uniqlo.com.
