You can officially shop UNIQLO : C, a collab with Clare Waight Keller.
For fashion girlies, Clare Waight Keller is a household name. Though she's arguably best known for designing Meghan Markle's iconic wedding dress for her 2017 nuptials to Prince Harry, the designer was fashion royalty long before. As the former artistic director at Pringle of Scotland, Chloé, and Givenchy, Keller has held the top job at some of the biggest names in fashion.
But now the rest of us can wear Keller's sleek, fashion-forward clothes. The designer is taking her talents to Uniqlo with a 35-piece collection that's officially available to shop now. Consisting of cozy fall separates, structured outerwear, and even a faux leather version of Uniqlo's ubiquitous crossbody bag, the collection is sure to satisfy longtime fans of Keller's as well as those discovering her aesthetic through the Japanese retailer.
"Collaborating with Uniqlo was an exciting opportunity because they are known for their dedication to quality, minimalistic design, and affordability," Keller tells InStyle of the collection, which has been in the works for over two years. "Merging this with my design ethos offers the chance to bring a fresh perspective to a wide audience."
Teaming up with Uniqlo also gave Keller an opportunity to push the boundaries in terms of technology. "For the first time, I was able to incorporate some of the brand's signature materials and techniques into my designs," she says. "This allowed for innovative fabric blends and finishes that elevate the everyday wear experience."
If you've followed Keller's work over the years, you'll recognize certain design codes, from the diaphanous hemlines of the midi dresses to the mixing of textures like pleating and shearling. "Fans of my work will recognize the meticulous attention to detail, clean lines, and the blending of masculine and feminine silhouettes," says the designer.
As for what Keller herself has been wearing from the collection, she says, "I've found myself gravitating towards the trench coat and cashmere from the collection. It's versatile, chic, and encapsulates the essence of the collaboration."
In other words: Add those to your cart now because they're likely to go fast.
Uniqlo : C is available now at select Uniqlo stores and uniqlo.com.
