Ines de la Fressange for Uniqlo

The Ines de la Fressange collection for Uniqlo launches tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited: Uniqlo has been one of my go-to favorites for basics like merino and cashmere sweaters, tailored trousers, and perfectly cut tees since I started shopping the Causeway Bay location in Hong Kong years ago. 

When it arrived in the UK, I was overjoyed and more than happy to find that the price point was just as affordable here and that the quality just as good. Anytime I'm looking for a simple shift dress or comfy tunic, I head to Uniqlo. In fact, I'm wearing one of their extra fine merino sweater dresses today with bare legs and chunky heeled sandals from & Other Stories - I'm especially a fan of their slightly longer lengths so I don't have to worry about constantly tugging down my skirt/dress hem at work!  

Tomorrow, French model, designer, aristocrat, and muse, Ines de la Fressange's collection of extra fine merino Breton tops, perfectly cut wool trousers, winter coats, and other chic basics will go on sale at Uniqlo and I'm sure it'll sell out in no time.

Here are a few items that I've got my eye on:

This thick, sweat pull-over that will no doubt be gone in an instant at only £19.90 ... perfect for chilly flights, lounging in over the weekend, and wearing over a white collared shirt. Which brings me to ...

This simple, cotton twill long-sleeve shirt, which would be perfect for layering under sweaters during the cold winter months. I especially love the red-stitched detail on the collar and cuffs (not seen). At £29.90, it just might be the perfect shirt that I've been searching for - especially with that elegantly curved hem.

And finally ...

This cashmere turtleneck sweater with a dipped hem. I just love the huge chunky collar - you can pull it over your face on windy days! Plus, it's cashmere. Luckily, it's not available until October (i.e. after my next pay day), so I can possibly shell out the £69.90 for this piece which is sure to last for years.

I'm so excited about this collection. Would you buy anything from it?


  1. I love Uniqlo jeans (the jeggins are amazing) and also the printed tshirts. Oh, and the jumpers. And the dresses... OK I JUST LOVE UNIQLO OK???!!

    My only problem is that their sizing is still Asian, so even though I'm a 14, my size is something like XL there. Way to make me feel fat, 'qlo!

    1. That's really interesting to hear, Charlotte, as for me personally, I find that Uniqlo sizes up. I typically wear a small or medium but I often find myself wearing XS or S exclusively at Uniqlo. I wonder if that's because I tend to buy tent-like dresses that are oversized in general ...
