Uniqlo teamed up with Los Angeles-based label Velvet for their latest collaboration, which hit the racks today. They follow, most recently, partnerships with Jil Sander and Costello Tagliapietra.
Designers Jenny Graham and Toni Spencer brought their breezy California cool down to Uniqlo prices--slouchy soft cotton tanks, tees, and dresses in muted hues range from just $15.50-$19.50 (Velvet tees usually go for around $70). We stopped by to check out the 14-piece line and predict that the cotton mini-dress with shoulder cut-outs and the henley tunic dress (both $19.50) will go like hot cakes.
The surprising best seller of the day?
Harem pants. People still want 'em, apparently. Uniqlo opened its doors at 10 a.m. and by 10:10 the jersey harems ($19.50) were already being restocked.
And if you're a Velvet fan, get psyched for fall, when the brand plans to launch six styles in cashmere for Uniqlo.
