10 Cool Finds from UNIQLO's SPRZ NY and Ines de la Fressange Collections
(SPOT.ph) Art and artists are the highlight at UNIQLO this season. The first of the two is SPRZ NY (Surprise New York), a global project where the fashion brand's famous basics bare special designs from art featured at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Some of the artists featured are Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Jackson Pollock, Ryan McGinness, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Jack Pierson.
And from the cool to the chic. On the other side, French designer Ines de la Fressange lends her iconic style with four capsule collections inspired by the Parisian working girl. There's the Petite Parisenne, traditional French work clothes with spunky floral accents and natural earth tones; Bleu, Blane, Parisienne, a contemporary series inspired by the colors blue, white, and red; Note Parisienne, soft black pieces that channel authentic Paris style; and Souffie de Parisienne, workout wear where comfort and fashion meet.
We scoured SM Mega Fashion Hall's three-storey UNIQLO for essentials we want to rock this summer.
