TIM HAMILTON FOR UNIQLO

March 12, 2008 BY CAPSULESNEWS

Photo-Reportage1.jpgFinally! the collection we've been waiting for from Uniqlo has arrived. Our friend Tim Hamilton has designed a collection of great trousers and layering pieces for Uniqlo. As Tim tells us, "Merging refined elegance with youthful energy, this collection took as a source the modern, playful images of Bruno Munari’s photo-reportage. Finding humor in the industrial, modernizing settings of 1930s Europe, Munari shows carelessly chic youth butting heads with the buttoned-up, formal establishment. This contrast is reflected in the colors and fabrics of the collection: muted colors meet with a nearly-technicolor palette as denim and jersey play off of deluxe twills, cashmeres and poplins. Workmen’s shirts are rendered in fine cottons, t-shirts are given elevated details, some knits are cut on the bias and some seams are torqued. Fun and imagination come together to land on a romantic idea of contemporary style." Go out and get em before theyre gone! Pics after the jump.
