Carine Roitfeld’s Latest Fashion Gig

Since Carine Roitfeld has her finger on the pulse of the fashion zeitgeist, we like to track her every move—we were over the moon with today’s news that Uniqlo will launch the Carine Roitfeld Collection in the fall, a collaboration of 40 pieces ranging from outerwear to underpinnings. Since her extensive resume includes a ten-year tenure as Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue, styling for the likes of Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci, and founding and editing CR Fashion Book, a bi-annual magazine, we’re guessing that this new collab will be a-mah-zing! Here are 3 staples Carine consistently subscribes to—fingers crossed they will be in her new line.

Carine Roitfeld's Signature Style

3 wardrobe staples we want to see in the Carine Roitfeld Collection at Uniqlo, launching in October of 2015.

Glamorous Statement Jacket

Carine is the queen of topping off an already gorgeous outfit with a major statement jacket. This is a styling trick we can start using stat as we wait for her collection to launch in the fall.

No one does daring as successfully as Carine. Her ability to make a provocative outfit both feminine and elegant is a reminder to us all that sexy underpinnings can be layered in a chic way.
