“My obsession is to find the balance between something that you need and something that you want. Something that integrates functionality, comfort, ease and also desire. Something that’s exciting with taste and quality and refinement, and if possible, a little poetry.”
— Christophe Lemaire, Uniqlo artistic director

Japanese retailer Uniqlo recently released their second collection of Uniqlo U. Designed by artistic director, Christophe Lemaire, the Spring Summer 2017 collection consists of basics that are anything but basic.

Known for his stylised minimalism, French designer Lemarie's collection is extensive, styles are modern and cuts are perfect. Even the boxier silhouettes such as the Sack Dress flatter the body. There's also a heaviness to the material that makes the pieces hang and feel well-made.

These wardrobe-building staples hit the mark of being comfortable and functional. Yet they hold Parisian charm, all with an affordable price tag.

These are my top picks from the new Spring Summer 2017 collection.
