With a new year upon us, now’s a great time to beat those post-Christmas blues with a new designer collaboration that won’t break the bank. Mumsnetter-approved Uniqlo has launched a limited-edition capsule collection with the renowned Finnish design house Marimekko.
The collection has taken the retailer’s beloved basics, like the viral crescent-shaped crossbody bag, and reimagines them with patterns and hues drawn from landscapes of Nordic nature. Crafted from fleece and Uniqlo’s innovative HEATTECH thermal fabric, these pieces are not only fashionable, but also perfect for layering up and staying warm throughout winter. And matching kids' pieces are available!
This exclusive collaboration celebrates Marimekko’s legacy of original prints and colours since 1951, merging it with Uniqlo’s commitment to practical yet stylish pieces. Marimekko, a pioneer in lifestyle brands, blends fashion, accessories, and home décor into a celebration of joyful living, with prints and colours that symbolise vibrant self-expression.
The collection itself presents an array of functional and cosy winter essentials for both adults and kids. From the softness of fleece to the warmth of HEATTECH garments, it integrates Uniqlo's signature winter pieces with Marimekko's iconic prints inspired by Nordic nature and wildlife. Bold and vibrant designs adorn timeless silhouettes, catering perfectly to women and kids alike.
Be quick, though. This limited-edition collection only launched on 11th January and is already flying off the shelves. While some items are out of stock online, there is plenty of stock still left in stores. Find the nearest Uniqlo store to you.
