UNIQLO has teamed up with Finnish design house Marimekko once again on a limited-edition capsule. The range includes a selection of modern silhouettes featuring soft and rich textures throughout, as well as bold prints and vibrant colorways.

Celebrating the joyous feeling of togetherness at this time of year, the new UNIQLO and Marimekko limited-edition holiday collection evokes the warmth and coziness of being at home in winter with family and friends.

Clean design and practical function come together with rich textures and vibrant shades in simple, versatile pieces to wear all day, every day.

“Challenging times have made it more important than ever to connect with close friends this holiday season,” said Yuki Katsuta, Head of R&D at UNIQLO, in a press release.

“Themed ‘Joyful Together,’ our new collection combines the signature simplicity of UNIQLO apparel with Marimekko’s warm and spirited prints to celebrate togetherness at this special time of year. We hope people everywhere will feel comfortable and at ease in the new line,” Katsuta adds.

The collection consists of poplin dresses featuring Marimekko’s iconic prints, modern tailoring and waist-accentuating belts. This season, the duo has added warm flannel items, along with premium merino blend knitwear. Elsewhere, the Ultra-Light Down coats sport modified collars, while the leggings, turtlenecks and socks have been made out of the cJapanese brand’s signature HEATTECH technology.
