Uniqlo Partners With Velvet on Collection of West Coast Basics and Confirms Second New York Store

On June 17, Uniqlo will unveil its latest collaboration, Uniqlo + Velvet. The lineup will offer jersey and cashmere styles in four separate mini collections to be released throughout the year. Jenny Graham and Toni Spencer, the co-creative directors at Velvet, designed West Coast-inspired basics like cropped harem pants, cut-out tee shirt dresses, and racer-back tank dresses for the Japanese retailer and named each collection after a California hotspot (Hollywood Roosevelt, Rodeo Drive, Venice Beach).

In September, a cashmere collection will follow the summer offering—with trapeze cardigans, off-the-shoulder tunics, and asymmetric long-sleeved tops selling for $99.90 and $129.90.

In other Uniqlo news, the retailer confirmed that it has signed a $300 million, fifteen-year lease to build a second American store (after SoHo) at 666 Fifth Avenue. It is the largest retail lease ever signed in New York.
