Carine Roifeld — editor of CR Fashion Book, Zoolander 2 enthusiastproponent of fashion orthodontia — may not be the first person you associate with Uniqlo. But today the Japanese retailer announced that Roitfeld, along with its design director Naoki Takizawa, would create a line of 40 pieces for the store, launching worldwide in October.

“I started from the idea of clothes that I would want to wear myself, and developed this into clothes that anyone would want to wear, a woman’s ideal of clothes that make her feel transformed when she wears them,” Roitfeld said in a statement. Though the details on the collection are still vague, we’ll put money on the fact that there’s some sheer lace in there, as well as a pencil skirt or two.
