Building on the success of previous Designer Invitation Projects (3.1 Phillip Lim, Alexandre Plokhov, Alice Roi), Uniqlo is about to debut two more designer collections. The first comes to us from Loden Dager, the second from Tim Hamilton (which will hit stores in April). Material Interest has photos of Loden's tailored six-style menswear line, which includes "basics like trousers, button-down shirts, polos, and over-the-knee shorts, as well as a truncated, notch-lapel two-button blazer with shirting material lining the sleeves—each available for under 80 bucks." The company has not acknowledged the rumors that Alexander Wang may also be putting together a low-priced line, but it wouldn't surprise us at all if they had an ace up their sleeve.
