First look: Jollibee x Uniqlo tees
Posted on

When Uniqlo first opened at SM Mall of Asia last April 2012, I was both surprised and amused with all the collaborations being offered—everything from Hello Kitty to Yakult.

So it came as no surprise to me when I learned about Uniqlo’s special collaboration with Philippine fastfood giant Jollibee. In fact the idea makes me giddy with excitement, being a fan of both Jollibee and Uniqlo.
Starting June 1st, 2015, Uniqlo will sell T-shirts with the famous Jollibee logo. This was announced at a press conference at Uniqlo Megamall last Thursday.

“Jollibee and UNIQLO share the same goal of providing a valued offering to every Filipino family. Our partnership with Jollibee will bring us closer to every member of the Filipino family as UNIQLO offers clothes for everyone,” said Katsumi Kubota, COO of Fast Retailing Philippines, Inc.

Uniqlo took the lead in the design and production processes. Taking the iconing Jollibee mascot, Uniqlo’s Japanese designer tweaked it to give it a classic, vintage, heritage look with the intentionally faded print.
Here’s what you can expect on June 1st:

The limited-edition T-shirts will sell for Php 390 for adults (men and women) and Php 290 for children. Aside from the Philippines, they will be sold in Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia.

“We have a lot to learn from Jollibee,” said Mr. Kubota. “It is a brand that makes people, from children to grandparents, happy. This is a great opportunity for Uniqlo. I am very honored.”

Ines de la Fressange launches 2nd collection for Uniqlo
Posted on

Before the word “supermodel” was ever coined (and I hate that word by the way), there were great beauties we looked up to in the ’80s. One of them was Ines de la Fressange.
At that time we knew her to be the muse of Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld—and one doesn’t become muse just by looks alone. Aside from being naturally tall, skinny, and beautiful, Ines also happens to be an aristocrat (her father is the Marquis de La Fressange) with an innate sense of style.

Following the success of her first collaboration with UNIQLO last Spring/Summer 2014, a second and bigger collection was recently launched for Fall/Winter 2014. Watch this:

Said Ines de la Fressange: “I try to take the position of women today, and take into account such factors as closet space and budget. No one can live surrounded by unlimited clothing. Having many items is not necessarily a good thing, and it is important to have ‘good clothes.’ The point I wanted to express with the new collection is that even without a detailed fashion knowledge, women can find something beautiful to wear. They can have a full wardrobe. The Fall/Winter collection is even better than I expected, and I’m extremely pleased with the elegant line,” she said.


The collection features smartly cut shirts, the classic trench and casual cashmeres, chic trousers, the elegant tuxedo jacket, and simple silk dresses. Each piece translates easily from day to night and is a great addition to any woman’s wardrobe.


The Ines de la Fressange collection is now available at UNIQLO SM Megamall, SM Aura and Glorietta 5.

Cabbages and Roses x UNIQLO
Posted on

The country girl in me (read: Anne of Green Gables) loves anything sweet, printed, and shabby chic.
I get so gigil when I see stores like Cabbages and Roses in Tokyo.

Cabbage & Roses, Shinjuku

Cabbages and Roses is a Bristish lifestyle brand that started producing fabrics in 2000.
The fabrics became cushions, pillows, dresses, blankets, curtains, wallpaper—basically everything for the home and the ladies. It has a store in Chelsea, London, and many more in Japan.

Imagine my delight when I found Cabbages and Roses right here in Uniqlo Mall of Asia and SM North The Block (yes, I went to both stores!)

I know it’s summer, but I love soft hoodies and wear them at home when my husband turns the aircon thermostat down.
Unfortunately not too many pieces in Manila. Wish they had more of the pieces, but hey, I’m happy with my loot.
