Even if you’re not familiar with Christophe Lemaire, you’ll want to check out Uniqlo’s latest collection. The Paris-based Lemaire worked at Lacoste and Hermès before starting his eponymous label and becoming artistic director of Uniqlo U. He’s known for his perfect basics; if Uniqlo’s recent J.W. Anderson capsule was all about prints and color, this one is all about simple pieces with elevated details. So instead of a plain red sweater-dress, for example, Lemaire’s version (seen above and below) comes in luxurious wool, with ribbed detailing on the top and an A-line silhouette to add some volume on the bottom.
There are 56 pieces for women, with prices starting at $15 for hats and $30 for sweaters, and going up to $150 for coats. Scroll ahead to shop the nine pieces you won’t regret buying.
