Say hello to the SS16 collection of UNIQLO and LEMAIRE, but farewell to their collaboration. With the overwhelming global success the Japanese-French team had from their AW15 line, their alliance returns for one last collection.

Several items sold out immediately after last season’s launch, which is unsurprising as the collection showcased the brands’ main ethos towards fashion and style: simplicity, quality and longevity.

It’s a rare treat that we are given such elegance from modern designers which also allows the accessibility and affordability for great apparel. Having peeked at the lookbook, we are certain that the SS16 collection will be as popular as last year’s looks.

The collection will be available exclusively at UNIQLO.com, March 3 at 1pm and in selected stores on March 18th.

From their upcoming collection, we are offered an array of choices with a variety of free-expression outfits that will no doubt capture the light and spirit of summer style.

Many items are lightweight yet functional, showcasing the main philosophy of the LifeWear collection. Flexible, versatile pieces for everyday wear have never looked, and felt, better.

The collection’s clean silhouettes and voluminous shapes incorporate multiple functional details, like over-sized pockets, for easy movement and freedom of feeling whatever the setting.

The easy, breezy nature of the items is paralleled in the palate scheme. We are given impressions of bright blue skies and long summer dusks with blue/green and half-tone ash and greys, alongside warming notes of ginger and mahogany.
