London-based designer Orla Kiely and Japan’s casual clothing store chain Uniqlo are to renew their collaboration for another season. Orla Kiely collaborated with Uniqlo for Spring/ Summer 2012 to create a range of clothing that showcases her classic and colourful prints, which Uniqlo sold in its international and Japan stores (over 1,000 stores globally).
Uniqlo collaborates with a number of designers throughout the year. Orla Kiely prints combined with the Uniqlo attention to quality materials and affordability have received wide acceptance from customers and led to the great success for the collection.
"We are pleased with the results of our first collection with Orla Kiely. Their bright colors and classic prints are a natural match for Uniqlo and our brand philosophy of ‘Made for All.’ We look forward to working with them again, to create our second collection," said Yuki Katsuta, Fast Retailing Group Officer and Head of R&D for Uniqlo.
