to shop / uniqlo x ines de la fressange fall winter 2016

The recurring Uniqlo x Ines de la Fressange collaboration is my favorite Uniqlo collab to date for its quality, wearability, fit, and classic styles.

The Fall/Winter 2016 collection just dropped a few days ago and has three style concepts: La Femme Rive Droite (Paris Right Bank), La Femme Rive Gauche (Paris Left Bank), and 70s Rock. Not all of the styles have dropped — more are coming in October.

The US Uniqlo site isn’t that great this time in terms of lookbooks or even explaining the concept. For reviews/lookbook/styling info:

When shopping the desktop version of the site, all item measurements are listed in the “size chart”. In general, I find IDLF to run true to size. Their sweaters and knit tops have a slimmer fit. Some coats may run big (like the prior season trench coats). If anything is sold out, for the US site at least, you can sign up to be notified when an item is re-stocked.

I’m not a sweater person and don’t wear work-friendly button down shirts as much as I’d like, so I gravitate through fitted tees (that are easy to care for), casual flannel buttondowns, blazers, and outerwear. These are my favorites:

Uniqlo’s having a huge anniversary sale right now. This IDLF trench is $39.90 down from $129.90. Size down! Random sizes in stock as of press time. Also used code SPOOKY for $31 off $150. They also restocked on other IDLF items including the corduroy blazers, the sleek ultra light down jacket, and the poly/nylon pea coat. Check back often as they do restock throughout the day.

Ines de la Fressange’s 4th collaboration with Uniqlo has partially dropped and shouts autumn with velvet, corduroy, tweed, and fair isle. Lots of blazers, coats, scarves, and hats. I have my eye on the corduroy blazer, lightweight long pea coat, gauze scarf, and checkered scarf. If I didn’t already have one from two seasons ago, I’d add the navy blazer to the list. (Previous coverage on Uniqlo x IDLF here, here, and here.)

Full collection (And don’t forget 6% back on eBates!) Edit: eBates is down to 1.5%. MrRebate is at 2%.

to shop / {sale alert} uniqlo x idlf s/s 2015 tailored blazer

Most of Uniqlo x Ines de la Fressange Spring 2015 is on sale. This linen tailored jacket is a favorite and looks to have been massively restocked in the last 24 hours. Great quality and great fit! Currently on sale for $49.90, there’s another coupon if you purchase over $125 and shipping is free on all orders. My only quibble is I need to alter the sleeve length. If your size is out, the website seem to restock frequently at all times of the day.

Sidenote: Dear Uniqlo, if you had an online price adjustment policy, I would make less returns.

to shop / {sale alert} polka dots and stripes at uniqlo

Confession: I placed a huge Uniqlo order at the beginning of the month. It was so large that they had to ship it in two huge boxes. I was extremely unmotivated to open them until this weekend.

Lots on sale at Uniqlo lately. Here are my sale picks which all happen to be $19.90 and are polka dot or stripe strong. Three of the four pieces below are from the Ines de la Fressange collection that I previously wrote about. Really really love this collection!

  • The striped top is cut to accommodate non-ruler figures. I love it. I highly recommend it and the dress version. Note: this is a thicker cotton so will not be suitable for a typical hot summer day.
  • Lightweight parka comes in various colors.
  • This hoodie is from a collection with Yayoi Kusama and was from the guys’ side. If you really like it, Moma has it in stock.
  • Usually silk blouses are too high maintenance for me. This IDLF one is cut well and can be machine washed!

As for the non-pictured John Robshaw collection. I am not a fan of the tees, but the linen dresses are cut well.
