Spotlight: SUNO x Uniqlo

I'm usually pretty on top of designer collaborations, but I missed this one somehow. Maybe because we tragically don't have an Uniqlo in Boston. Anyway, SUNO is an incredible line. It's always been very heavy on prints and colors, which is probably why I love it. The first major SUNO moment I remember is Michelle Obama in this gorgeous skirt from one of the first family's Martha's Vineyard summer vacations.

I remember doing a frantic search for the designer of that skirt when I saw this image a few years ago and it was love at first sight for SUNO and I. Their 2013 collections aren't as heavy on colors as in previous seasons, but they still have some lust worthy looks. Por ejemplo:

Nice, right? So when I saw a tweet from Who What Wear yesterday trumpeting the SUNO x Uniqlo collection I did a Scooby Doo reaction with the head tilt and the RAWRRRR? Uniqlo is known for very affordable basics and on trend pieces like dresses and sweaters so I knew this collection would not only be stylish, but wallet friendly as well. In fact, nothing in the collection is over $40. Fantastic! Here are my favorite pieces:

 Skirt $29.90/Image via Uniqlo
Printed shirt dress $39.90/Image via Uniqlo
Printed maxi skirt $29.90/Image via Uniqlo
Breton stripe tank $19.90/Image via Uniqlo
Four pieces for under $150 total that will certainly go with things you already have and spice up your summer wardrobe? Yes! The first skirt is probably my favorite and I hope to secure it before my summer trips. It's perfect with just a white t-shirt or tank. The same goes for that adorable maxi skirt.

Have a look at the rest of the SUNO x Uniqlo collection here and please share with me what your favorite piece is! Has SUNO been on your radar? What about Uniqlo? There are only stores in New York and San Francisco stateside so far, but fingers crossed for one in Boston some time soon!
