This fall, in conjunction with the UNIQLO London store opening in November, UNIQLO has teamed up with Pantone, world-renowned authority on color, for the second time, for a special collection of PANTONE-inspired cashmere. The PANTONE Color Collection of 100% cashmere sweaters offers two styles for men including a crewneck and a cardigan, and for women there is a deep v-neck. All styles are offered in a palette of 20 official PANTONE Colors. The PANTONE Cashmere Collection sweaters will retail at the affordable price of $129.50 and will be sold exclusively at the UNIQLO New York Flagship, the UT store, and UNIQLO Japan. UNIQLO's first collaboration with Pantone was the launch of a line of PANTONE T-shirts earlier this year.
"UNIQLO's innovative retail concepts along with its ability to present exciting and extensive color assortments, makes it an ideal partner for us," enthused Lisa Herbert, executive vice president of Pantone's fashion and home division. "The new PANTONE Color Cashmere Collection is in sync with the latest fashion trends, and will enable customers to find the colors they connect with to express their own individuality."
Each cashmere sweater in the PANTONE Collection will bear a small woven tag resembling the iconic PANTONE Chip, with the UNIQLO logo inside, indicating the unique partnership and assuring the wearer of the PANTONE Color match.
