The Cut has a look at pieces from Uniqlo's upcoming designer collaborations with Charlotte Ronson, Costello Tagliapietra, and Vena Cava. Ronson's contribution might be a tad pedestrian, but Costello Tagliapietra knocked it out of the park with their drapey, asymmetrical, grown-up dresses (like the one at right). As for Vena Cava, we're not sure there's any other label out there that's as good at maintaining a consistent vision across so many mass-market collabs. The designers explained, "We wanted to make pieces you could go to yoga in, and then walk around Brooklyn in." [The Cut]
