New York based fashion labels Opening Ceremony and Gilded Age are next in line to design menswear for Uniqlo. Under the design invitation project they have been commissioned to produce a spring summer capsule collection, and in addition womenswear is to be fronted by Shipley & Halmos and Steven Alan.
Opening Ceremony’s offering is perhaps the most exciting, with neat collar and fit given to balanced plaid shirting in blue, green and pink and shorter (just above the ankle) cargo pants which feature a more wider shape - mirroring the changing fashion silhouette - finished with a lightweight shawl collar jacket. Compulsory knitwear comes in complimentary tones of beige and blue, along with slim cut trousers and matching fitted jacket.
Gilded Age gives offers up a more relaxed fit and shorts are prevalent in a variety of checks and come cropped at the knee. Scarves are worn over muted jackets, check shirts and soft cotton Henley neck t-shirts (in red, greys and blue), paired with chinos.
Opening Ceremony for Uniqlo collection going into UK stores on 19th March.
