Indigo Blue Project by Uniqlo
Uniqlo has long been known to offer quality, affordable staple pieces for any wardrobe. And in recent times also varying degrees of interesting collaborations. More often than not however the more notorious collections are a Japan only release. Thankfully this time, although we are a bit behind our brothers from the East, the UNIQLO INDIGO PROJECT is available exclusively online and at UNIQLO 311 Oxford Street.
This collection is a celebration of Japanese denim craftsmanship. Inspired by pure indigo blue dye; featuring a range of items which range from rich indigoes to light stone washes. The UNIQLO INDIGO BLUE PROJECT is a fusion of the minute detail of denim crafting paired with imperfect aesthetics which play up the casual appeal of denim. Jeans feature signs of distress and destroy for a vintage, lived in look and feel. Shirts feature ombré washes for a striking look which highlights the contrast between light and dark.
With a number of good looking options available, my picks from the collection are the Loose-fit tapered jeans, the Slim-fit straight jeans (two of the four selvedge styles available, comprising of six out of eight washes) and a simple yet beautifully crafted sweatshirt made with thick fabric lined with soft pile. Despite the intentionally clean (and somewhat LMFAO) look given by the male model, each of the options depicted above would look great with a black or white t-shirt and leather jacket. On this rare occasion Indigo is the new Black. As is customary the sizes will sell out extraordinarily fast both instore and online so don’t miss out.
