UNIQLO have just announced that it will be launching the 2017 Spring/Summer Ines De La Fressange collection in two phases from Jan. 27 at selected UNIQLO stores and the online store.

In its seventh season, this 68-item collaborative line hails its inspiration from Marseille, a port city in the south of France that has flourished for centuries as a trading center. Items in the collection evoke the beautiful scenery and sunny weather, light sea breezes, and diverse cultures that make the city the vibrant and seductive Marseille that makes for gorgeous settings in motion pictures, such as Borsalino.

This collection, designed by Ines with her characteristic affection for spontaneity and living in the moment, offers a sense of freedom and a touch of nostalgia.

Ines’ signature indigo celebrates the coastal waters of Marseille in everything from the lineup’s outerwear to shirts, jackets, pants, skirts and dresses, with on-trend berry accents underscoring vitality. The aesthetics of the design includes floral prints and elegant dot patterns.

The range also features satin stadium jackets, blouson shirts and other spring outerwear, as well as sporty polo shirts and macramé mesh knits for summer. Linen shirts, camisoles, and dresses will be rolled out from early March. New additions to the range will be apron wrap dresses, tricolor espadrilles and lounge wear.
