Christophe Lemaire is no stranger to the Uniqlo family. With two very successful collaborations under his belt, the move makes sense for both parties involved. “I am delighted to welcome Mr. Christophe Lemaire as a member of the Uniqlo team. I have time and again been astonished by his outstanding talent in working together to create the Uniqlo and Lemaire collection. I look forward to seeing more of the innovations that he inspires, and I am confident that his tremendous experience and talent will thrive at Uniqlo,” said CEO of Fast Retailing Tadashi Yanai. The Uniqlo U line will have its debut during Paris couture week in July.
