The Uniqlo Innovation Project, a collection of ultra functional, weather-proof everything, got off to a strong start when it debuted this past fall, as The Shophound reports that the first drop of warm down parkas and jackets have all sold out.
Now, just in time for real winter weather, comes the spring collection, which will debut today at Uniqlo's Fifth Avenue and 34th Street locations. The new line—which is again a collaboration between Nicola Formichetti, Uniqlo Creative Director Kashiwa Sato and design director Naoki Takizawa—will feature brighter colors for spring, like that fuschia zip-up above. And if you're at the Fifth Avenue store looking for more ways to stay warm, don't forget about the Heattech tunnel.
