Another year, another Uniqlo collaboration. The Uniqlo x Marimekko collection is a thing of beauty and it's time to get excited.
Luckily Uniqlo is here to save us, on the coat front at least. Teaming up with cult Finnish textiles and fashion brand Marimekko, Uniqlo have just unveiled their latest limited-edition holiday collection and the prints are pretty epic.
MARIMEKKO ULTRA LIGHT DOWN COCOON HOODED COAT
$146 / £109.90, Uniqlo x Marimekko
Top of our wishlist is this sleeping bag-esque coat which is the perfect antidote to the winter blues with its cosy high neck and down filling. Known for their original prints and colours Marimekko's signature style can be seen across the collection with bold designs that are both practical and wearable. The Ultra Light Down Cocoon Coat comes in two colour ways, so you can choose between green or grey or if the length is a little off putting, an Ultra Light Down Cocoon Parker is available in pink, blue or grey.
MARIMEKKO ULTRA LIGHT DOWN COCOON HOODED PARKA
$107 / £79.90, Uniqlo x Marimekko
Even cooler is the fact that all coats roll up into a mini pack, just like a sleeping bag, making them easy for travel or escapes to the countryside.
But don’t be put off if you’ve already got your winter coat sorted. The collection also features printed roll-necks, jumpers and shirts as well as some very cool socks - if you're looking to nail the art of self-gifting would make the perfect Christmas gift to yourself.
The Limited Edition Holiday Capsule Collection is available now.
