UNIQLO, the Japanese global apparel retailer, has announced a special edition collaboration line with Finnish design house Marimekko, celebrated worldwide for its original prints and colors since 1951.

The new collection for women, which will be available only for a limited time, will launch at UNIQLO stores and UNIQLO.com starting from Thursday, March 29. The collection embodies a shared commitment by the two companies to enhance daily living. For Marimekko, this is via its mission of empowering people to be happy as they are, and in bringing joy to their everyday lives through bold prints and colors.

LifeWear is the UNIQLO commitment to creating high quality clothing that is functional and reasonably priced, to suit everyoneโ€™s daily lifestyles. The nine-item collection combines the timelessly bold and vibrant print designs of Marimekko with the quality and comfort of UNIQLOโ€™s casual street style. All of the prints are designed by Maija Louekari, one of Marimekkoโ€™s world-renowned print designers, and are inspired by nature and urban lifestyle.

A new print design has been specifically chosen to celebrate the collection, which is comprised of tops, dresses, pants, sneakers and bags. The silhouettes of the tops and dresses accentuate femininity, and the pants are available in both plain and printed styles.
