After a prior collection last year, UNIQLO just announced another collaboration with Finnish house design brand Marimekko for a collection this holiday season. This 2019 Fall/Winter collection will drop on November 29, emphasizing Finnish winter traditions of Finland for women and for the first time, there are items for young girls and babies in store.
Yuki Katsuta, Head of Research & Development of UNIQLO, expresses his excitement for this collection, saying “We are very excited to introduce our second limited-edition collection designed in collaboration with Marimekko, following the success of our 2018 Spring/Summer collection,”
He adds on, “I am also pleased to see Marimekko prints and colors on such UNIQLO LifeWear as cashmere, Ultra Light Down and HEATTECH for the very first time. What a beautiful way to stay warm in the coming winter months, while celebrating a touch of Finnish tradition.”
Tiina Alahuhta-Kasko, President and CEO of Marimekko, also expresses her thoughts. “Following the positive reception of our first limited edition collaboration collection with UNIQLO in spring 2018, we are thrilled to collaborate with UNIQLO again for Fall/Winter 2019. The new limited edition collection features Marimekko’s bold prints and colours in winterly wardrobe essentials made for all. We believe that together with UNIQLO we have been able to create something truly special for our customers and can’t wait to see this new line bring joy to people’s daily lives around the world,”
Marimekko aims to empower people's happiness and to spread it daily through bold prints and colors. As for LifeWear, it is the UNIQLO commitment to construct high-quality clothing that is functional and price-friendly; to fit through everyone’s daily lifestyles. This collection fuses together the complementary goals of the two companies, making known the Finnish winter traditions of families enjoying the outdoors in the snowy forests under the magical northern lights, and gathering around the fireplace to warm up in the cozy atmosphere of their winter cabins.
