Global apparel retailer UNIQLO will launch its second collection with MARNI on Friday, 9 December. This second collection born of the fusion of these two design philosophies brings comfy warmth to winter days, and invigorates everyday styling with color and playfulness.
The theme of this second collection was the joy of being wrapped up. This was expressed through the UNIQLO product synonymous with winter, HEATTECH; knits, which are in especially demand amidst customer feedback, and accessories.
Francesco Risso, Creative Director at MARNI, said, “Through this collection, I wanted to investigate the aesthetic perception of the 60’s, flirting with clichés. This time, we transposed those psychedelic patterns onto garments that unapologetically define the body, creating an enigmatic interplay of prints and anatomy that defines the silhouette.”
The creativity of MARNI shines through in layering that interweaves graphic prints, vivid colours, and organic three-dimensional forms. UNIQLO winter staple HEATTECH products have been interpreted with 1960s psychedelic prints and colour block designs. Down outerwear with voluminous cocoon silhouettes can be layered over knits in neon green, orange, and saffron yellow. Hugging HEATTECH, and shell-like down outerwear that envelops the body keep the wearer warm on winter days.
The latest UNIQLO and MARNI collection is an exciting collection of mix and match goods, featuring a variegated lineup of eclectic goods offers limitless potential for everyday styling. Vests, sweaters, and balaclavas – a staple for this winter – employing the same popcorn knit ensure warmth from head to toe. In addition to mittens and beanies in matching knit, the collection also features gloves and stoles in cashmere and mélange knit. The rich selection of items in assorted colours and patterns takes the hassle out of finding the perfect gifts for the holiday season.
The collection features 100% silk furoshiki scarves with hand-painted style patterns that are a feast for the eyes. In addition to being smooth and soft to the touch, the characteristic luster and sleekness of silk results in gorgeous draping.
UNIQLO and MARNI Second Collection will be available exclusively at Fahrenheit 88 and online at www.uniqlo.com on 9 December 2022. Discover more on www.uniqlo.com/marni.
