Former model and fashion icon Ines de la Fressange has collaborated with Japanese retailer UNIQLO on a capsule collection of everyday wear that offers that coveted combination of luxury, comfort and longevity. The Parisian designer, who began her career as a model in 1975 before becoming Karl Lagerfeld’s muse and Chanel’s top model between 1983 and 1990, first collaborated with the brand in 2014 on its LifeWear S/S collection.
The 58-year-old mother-of-two is admired by women of all ages the world over for her unassuming but sophisticated style. She has that very French knack of never looking like she’s tried too hard, but always exuding easy glamour. This new collaboration with UNIQLO offers an instant hit of Ines’s effortless style. We’ve picked our favourites from the collection, which is available online today.
