Uniqlo Goes All Parisian Chic



Carrie Bradshaw may well have sat in bed with Mr Big reading library books containing love letters by the likes of Beethoven etc, Me? Well I'm more of a style guide kinda girl (but that might change if I got under the duvet with Mr Big).  One of my favourite books on style has to be (sorry La Zoe) Parisian Chic by Ines De La Fressange. I can't believe I have never even been to Paris when I live fairly near the Eurostar train line, but I am always transported there when only a few pages in, mesmerised as much by the Parisian backdrop as a navy cashmere v-neck, and you would have had to have spent the last week or so in a coma if you didn't know that the ever so stylish model muse of Parisian Chic fame has joined forces with Uniqlo for yet another high street collaboration.

Yes I initially groaned at the thought of another collab, but knowing what Ines can do with a white shirt and trench coat had me chomping at the bit to check out the collection which is pretty much what I would have expected.
With a distinct Parisian style evident in all four stories, Petite Parisienne, Bleu, Blanc Parisienne, Souffle de Parisienne (Available in April) and Note Parisienne, the collections are jam packed full of wardrobe staples, although sadly the dress pictured above which I adore, appears to be in the collection not yet online. Typical.

The collection is online to buy now but won't be instore until 20th March, see it all here.

Have you bought anything from the collection yet?

  1. I managed to order 3 things last week and they're on their way to me. The one thing I would have been happiest with is that printed dress but it was already sold out online last week - in fact most of things were by lunchtime! Not sure if they're restocking or saving it all for the stores. The best thing is that they're natural fibres and machine washable. To be honest I'm not too hopeful and will be surprised if I end up keeping all 3 - can't wait to see how/if they actually fit!

  3. Bought the black pin-striped cotton trousers in medium. And I really am a medium. And they really are huge. Very disappointing.

  11. Clearly I've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, as I didn't know about this collaboration ... but as Uniqlo isn't in Ireland, I guess it doesn't make much difference. However, I have the same book ... I drool over her style as you do ... and if there's a Uniqlo in Manchester (I'll be there at the end of April) and if this is still in store, I'll be a very happy bunny indeed. And Sharron ... GO TO PARIS!!!!
