Always impeccably decked out with effortless ease, former model Ines de la Fressange definitely knows a thing or two about style. In fact, Ines started modelling when she was  only17 and was the muse for the late Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel in the 1980s.

Her Parisian chic caught the eyes of Japanese giant retailer Uniqlo and in 2014, they launched their first collaboration. The rest, as they say, is history.

For the new fall/winter 2020 partnership, Ines draws inspirations from stylish women who stands for female independence in the 1970s, among them actress, songwriter, and model Jane Birkin and singer-songwriter Françoise Madeleine Hardy. 

According to Ines: “Back in the seventies, many women were determined to emancipate themselves from traditions. These liberated individuals took fashion and their lives in exciting new directions.”
