Let the lines begin! Uniqlo has just announced the collaboration list for this year's Designers Invitation Project. We had already learned that Vena Cava is a part of the roster when they spilled the beans last February, but now we officially have a date—of May 12—to attach to it. Also joining the line-up is Costello Tagliapietra, debuting April 21, and a much-anticipated Charlotte Ronson collection, arriving May 12.
WWD got a sneak peek at Ronson's collection—six styles, including striped jersey dresses like the one above and, of course, florals—which she describes as "a seaside retreat, with coastal countryside as well as nautical influences and whimsical prints." And it sounds a little crazy, but WWD also has it that each piece retails for $29.99. Could it be? Only time, some of it spent waiting in super long lines, will tell.—Tiffany Yannetta
Update: We apologize for the misprint—the Charlotte Ronson collection will debut May 5.
