Lulu Guinness X Uniqlo

Lulu Guinness has designed a capsule range that will form part of the Uniqlo Spring 2012 UT collection.
There are 14 cute graphic designs in the range of wide necked, gently draping T-shirts, which all come in the trademark Lulu palette of black, white and vivid lipstick red, with inky blue and gray backgrounds.
The designs hail from a line up of the Lulu Guinness brand’s most iconic images and graphics. That means a hairline and glasses that resemble the designer’s own, and repeat prints and riffs on cats and kisses, with big lipstick kisses and cat features featuring. A vintage cameo print, trompe l’oeil pearls and a stylishly hand drawn London skyline complete the line up along with a printed bow and a line drawing of London townhouses.
Plain bodies are contrasted with nautical style stripes on contrast sleeves for a few of the styles and while the mood taps into the Lulu Guinness premium lifestyle, the prices are in line with the rest of Uniqlo’s huge UT T-shirt collection, making the London designer’s look easily achievable.
The collection hits stores today and retails for $19.90 [£12.90]. The designer will attend an event at the Japanese store’s Oxford Street flagship on Thursday to launch the designs.
