Carine Roitfeld, fashion editor, stylist and all-round style icon has been enlisted by Uniqlo to design a capsule collection.

The 40 pieces, scheduled to hit stores in October this year, will include everything from outerwear to underwear and will be focused on the brand's LifeWear, which means they will be comfortable and affordable as well as fashion-forward.

No images have been released of the collection, but you may have spotted a not-quite-real Uniqlo ad in the most recent issue of Roitfeld's CR magazine which could offer up some clues to what we can expect. As for the woman herself, she says, 'I started from the idea of clothes that I would want to wear myself, and developed this into clothes that anyone would want to wear, a woman’s ideal of clothes that make her feel transformed when she wears them.'

Naoki Takizawa, UNIQLO Design Director adds, “Carine goes to see collections all around the world, and the visuals that emerge from this relentless pursuit of leading edge fashion have had a tremendous influence on the fashion industry. The clothing depicted in these fresh and innovative visuals, produced with the fashion world’s most influential creators, seems somehow triumphant. I believe that a new type of LifeWear will be created through her work.'
