If you've been feeling uninspired with your wardrobe, then a pop of color and a bold print are a sure to liven things up. And when it comes to finding pieces that have both, Uniqlo's latest collaboration with Marimekko is a great place to start. Following the positive reception of their first collection, the Japanese global apparel retailer and the Finnish design house have come together once again to create a lineup of pieces that are just as chic as they're cozy.
Launching at Uniqlo stores and online on Nov. 29, the new collection celebrates Finnish winter traditions with styles for women, girls, and now babies, too. Within the offering are separates, dresses, and outerwear as well as accessories like hats, gloves, and scarves.
"We are very excited to introduce our second limited edition line designed in collaboration with Marimekko, following the success of our spring and summer line," said Yuki Katsuta, Head of Research and Development of Uniqlo, in a press release from the brand. "I am also pleased to see Marimekko prints and colors on such Uniqlo LifeWear as cashmere, Ultra Light Down, and HEATTECH for the very first time. What a beautiful way to stay warm in the coming winter months, while celebrating a touch of Finnish tradition."
The collection marries Marimekko's bold prints and playful use of color with Uniqlo's timeless and functional silhouettes to create winter wardrobe essentials with an eye-catching twist. Even better? The high-quality pieces come at an affordable price, so you won't have to dive too deep into your holiday shopping budget when you scoop up a piece (or two) later this month.
In the mix, you'll find everything from wool-cashmere hoodies and HEATTECH turtlenecks to long-sleeve jumpsuits and a range of sophisticated dresses that have all been given the Marimekko touch. However, if you're still in need of statement outerwear for snowy days, you'll want to peek at the Ultra Light Down Cocoon Jacket and the Ultra Light Down Cocoon Coat — both are standout pieces that are stylish and practical.
All of the pieces in this collection will have you ready to beat the chill in style. So, make sure to circle Nov. 29 on your calendar to be one of the first to shop the collaboration.
