After the success of the Spring / Summer 2013 collection, UNIQLO are pleased to announce the return of Celia Birtwell for the Fall / Winter season.
Launching into all stores on Thursday 22nd August, the collection features 100% silk dresses, shirts, and scarves, long sleeve t-shirts, and a line of HEATTECH t-shirts.
The collection features some of Celia’s most renowned and iconic prints that have been re-scaled and re-worked especially for UNIQLO.
Combining Celia’s globally recognised textile prints and Japanese innovation in fabric technology and quality, the collection targets style conscious women of all ages while keeping them warm throughout the winter months.
Celia said on her second collection for UNIQLO: I am so thrilled to be doing a second collection with Uniqlo. I love to see the prints on various fabrics, and to have silk dresses and headscarves this time is so chic. I am delighted with the results.
For the silk pieces, UNIQLO have used the highest quality 5A and 6A grade silk. The silk holds natural amino acids, similar to the composition of human skin, making the pieces offer exceptional comfort and warmth by mirroring it’s functions.
The Celia Birtwell HEATTECH line up sees the return of UNIQLO’s revolutionary winter warmer. Engineered for warmth, HEATTECH is designed with a proprietary rayon-rich blend of fibres developed by TORAY Industries. Rayon fibres naturally retain and lock in heat within the tiny air pockets created between them, allowing you to wear less in winter.
