Christophe Lemaire, known for being an ex-Hermès designer and for his eponymous label Lemaire, has officially joined Uniqlo after two collaborative collections. He will serve as Artistic Director of a new Uniqlo Paris R&D center, where he will oversee the new Uniqlo U line. This marks a huge step for Uniqlo and Lemaire’s relationship, and its first Uniqlo U collection will launch during Paris couture week in early July, hitting stores this fall.

“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,” said Tadashi Yanai, chairman, president and CEO of Fast Retailing, Uniqlo’s parent company.
