If you think Charles and Ray Eames, you tend to think pricey. Not so the Charles and Ray Eames collection for Uniqlo.
That’s because you’ll not find any furniture here. At least, not actual furniture. After all, this is Uniqlo. They never sell anything in that line. The range actually includes t-shirts, blankets and slippers, all decorated with either iconic furnishings or patterns inspired by the textiles of the much-loved design duo.
Specifically you can pick up t-shirts featuring the classic chairs, other garments with those textile designs present, women’s shawls decorated with the Dot Pattern and Circles motifs plus slippers featuring the very same prints. Yes, slippers. I think that’s our favourite part of the range. Although we would definitely take the entire range if money permitted. There is nothing here making up the numbers. It really is an incredibly well thought out range.
This officially licensed range is the latest addition to Uniqlo’s Sprz NY collection, which has previously included the likes of Andy Warhol and Keith Haring and we hope, a further Eames range. I have heard a whisper than Uniqlo will follow this up with another selection of designs from the duo in the not-too-distant future.
If anything catches your eye in the current range, it will all be available to purchase online from 12th October 2017. But don’t hang about, as this is almost certain to fly off the retailer’s shelves on day one.
