UPDATE 7/7/15: More details surrounding Lemaire's collaboration with Uniqlo have been released. The full line will include 25 pieces for men's with prices ranging $40 to $200. T-shirts will cost $39.90 to $49.90; knits, which seem to be the focus of the collection we've seen so far, will go for $49.90 to $159.90; outerwear will run from $129.90 to $199.90; and pants will be $59.90 to $89.90.
Lemaire believes that his philosophy completely aligns with Uniqlo and claims he "dreamed" of working with the brand. "We believe that Lemaire’s journey beyond the frontlines of fashion to focus on the wearer is completely in keeping with the LifeWear concept’s commitment to comfort, quality and style aimed at making life better," the former Hermès designer said in a statement. "Every item combines elegance with moderate relaxation and comfort, for modern, advanced wardrobe mainstays."
It was announced earlier this year that Christophe Lemaire would be teaming up with Uniqlo for its next designer collaboration. The former artistic director of Hermes and his fellow designer Sarah-Linh Tran developed Lemaire in 2014, and the label has now created a men and women's Fall 2015 collection with the Japanese retailer.
Today Style.com has shared the first images from the anticipated partnership shot by Alasdair McLellan.
“Basic is an overused term in fashion, but at the end of the day, it’s quite true, quite right. Pieces that you need, pieces that you want—that’s what we tried to do," said Lemaire about the collaboration.
The collection officially drops in early October. You can check out the rest of images below.
