Jan. 2017, Singapore – UNIQLO announces that it will be launching the 2017 Spring/Summer Ines de La Fressange collection in two phases on 27 January 2017 and 3 March 2017 at UNIQLO’s Global Flagship Store, Orchard Central and online (http://uniqlo.com.sg/).

In its seventh season, this collaborative line takes its inspiration from Marseille, a port city in the south of France that has flourished for centuries as a trading center. Items evoke the beautiful scenery and sunny weather, light sea breezes, and diverse cultures that make the city so vibrant and also such a seductive setting for motion pictures such as Borsalino. This collection, designed by Ines with her characteristic affection for spontaneity and living in the moment, offers a sense of freedom juxtaposed with nostalgia.

Ines' signature indigo celebrates the coastal waters of Marseille in everything from the lineup's outerwear to shirts, jackets, pants, skirts and dresses, with on-trend berry accents. The design palette includes floral prints and elegant dot patterns.

The range features satin stadium jackets, blouson shirts and other spring outerwear, as well as sporty polo shirts and macramé mesh knits for summer. Linen shirts, camisoles, and dresses will be launched in early March. New additions to the range include apron wrap dresses, tricolor espadrilles, and loungewear.

For this collection, Naoki Takizawa, UNIQLO Special Projects Design Director, worked with Ines to bring together her passion for clothing that enhances comfort and beauty for all women with the UNIQLO LifeWear concept.
