Here’s Your Shortcut To Nailing Parisian Chic

We love nothing more than an exciting high street collab and this Uniqlo news has got us all in a tizzy. Teaming up with French fashion legend and Karl Lagerfeld muse, Ines de la Fressange for another autumn/winter collection, Uniqlo are delivering one sure fire way to bag that classic Parisian style.

Ines de la Fressange was Chanel’s star model during the 1980s and went on to be Karl Lagerfeld’s muse. She has since worked as a designer, journalist, fashion consultant and has even written a succesful book entitled, Parisian Chic. In 2013, she turned designer for Uniqlo and has created many amazing collections since, although we think this most recent one might be her best yet.

Speaking about the new range, she explained:

“This year’s styling is even more elegantly feminine than that of my previous collections. I’ve also augmented daily clothing with some formal items to dress things up a little. You can mix and match the items with T-shirts and denim to add a dash of style to casual comfort. I want to create clothing that offers timeless appeal to women and makes it easy to look a little more elegant.”

The collection, which launched today, certainly ticks the boxes of elegance and femininity, with the chic Parisian aesthetic Ines knows so well shining through. Make sure to check out the entire collection over at Uniqlo, but these are our favourite picks from the gorgeous new range.

> A coat and hat form the must-haves of Uniqlo’s new collab.

> Classic basics done amazingly will have you raking in the compliments. Pair either with a simple cigarette trouser and brogue for the ultimate transitional look.
