(Celia Birtwell) Vintage looks from Celia Birtwell + hubby Ossie Clark in the early 1970s
Remember a few years ago when British textile designer Celia Birtwell collaborated with Topshop and the whole collection sold out in, like, half a second? Well, in case you missed that limited-edition capsule collection, today's your lucky day—because Celia Birtwell has teamed up with Japanese fast-fashion retailer Uniqlo
for a super-cute print-centric clothing collection that's set to launch March 21st, the first-ish day of spring.
In an interview with WWD
, Birtwell explained that she'd decided to team up with Uniqloe because she admired their "terribly clever, very basic designs and great colors. You can't misunderstand their clothing, and the atmosphere in Uniqlo shops is very peaceful."
And, furthermore, working with the massive retailer was a piece of cake! "We were all talking from the same page—and we made each other laugh," she said. "They are a very sympathetic company and from Day One there were no blips."
The collection of separates, dresses, and tote bags will be priced from about $15.50 up to $47 (for a dress).
