This morning we checked out the third offering from Uniqlo's Designers Invitation Project, a month-long event highlighting New York-based designers with limited-edition collections. Currently six unique pieces from Vena Cava are displayed for sale in the front of the Soho store, alongside the brand's normal attire. There are about twelve different dresses and tops when you include color options, and they all retail for $29.90 each.
Most of the pieces are in blue, gray and orange shades in fun, yet edgy designs perfect for the summer months. We loved one orange cap-sleeved dress in particular, and lucky for you there are many left. Amazingly, the store was not at all crowded and the racks were well stocked with XS-L for every shape and size. Pieces from the Charlotte Ronson and Costello Tagliapietra collections—which were released earlier this spring —are still available in the back of the store, and all three will remain on sale until May 21st.—Alexa Gordon
