Following the huge success of Christophe Lemaire´s fall and spring collection for Uniqlo, the Japanese fast-fashion giant named the designer as the artistic director of the new Uniqlo Paris Research and Development Centre, but also to design a completely new line called Uniqlo U. Although Lemaire designed his previous Uniqlo collections with partner in business and life Sarah-Linh Tran, this new contract for Uniqlo U line sees Lemaire on an individual basis, said a representative for Uniqlo, but it's possible Tran will be involved at his discretion. The collection will debut during Paris Couture Week in early July, while in retail stores will hit for the Fall/Winter 2016 season.

"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," Tadashi Yanai — chairman, president and CEO of Fast Retailing, Uniqlo's parent company — told Business of Fashion, where you can also read an exclusive interview made by Tim Blanks to Christophe Lemaire, here.
