UNIQLO launches Orla Kiely designed Heattech collection
Oct '13
UNIQLO are proud to announce their third collaboration with Irish designer Orla Kiely for the fall winter season. After the sell out success of the last two collections, Orla’s bold colourful prints will once again feature on an exclusive collection of women’s HEATTECH v-neck and rollneck t-shirts.

The collection has been exclusively designed for UNIQLO using never before seen prints and colourways. Orla said on the collection:

"With the idea of a ‘happy winter’ in mind, I have created a joyful burst of prints inspired by a living winter forest with all its flora and fauna. The designs visualise falling leaves and dragonflies dancing in the light, squirrels, little robins, mistletoe and brambles. I used a palette of rich jewel-like colours such as emerald and amethyst and autumnal hues of amber and ruby combined to lift and enhance the true spirit of winter".

The collection combines classic British design with Japanese quality and innovative fabrics. HEATTECH is designed to keep you warm while wearing less in winter. It 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. Moisture retention is achieved in the fabric by blending it with milk protein that contains natural amino acids. UNIQLO have added camellia oil for the first time this year to improve the second skin natural feeling of HEATTECH.
