Uniqlo SS12 Press Preview

Uniqlo SS12 Press Preview

I went to the UNIQLO press show earlier this month to check out the spring/summer 2012 collection.

There were plenty of simple, versatile basics and well-designed sporty separates which, in true UNIQLO style, come in every colourway possible.

soft marine-inspired, cashmere-blend stripy knitwear

stylish sportswear in a feminine palette of lilac, soft greys and monochrome. I can picture these pieces at yoga and pilates classes everywhere already...

stacks of old school airtex-style polo shirts and tees...

... in rainbow bright colours

UNIQLO has collaborated with Orla Kiely to produce dresses, blouses and shirts which will be in stores in the spring.  As you can expect from the pattern-obsessed designer, the collection focuses on retro graphic prints and classic motif patterns in bold colours.
