Distinct with its sun-soaked hues and laidback silhouettes, Lemaire's collaboration with Uniqlo for SS16 purveys the tranquility and warmth of a midsummer solstice. The breezy offering of lightweight trenches and sleeveless ribbed knits come in a calming colour palette of butterscotch, burnished teal and slate grey, including of course black and white on account of the French brand's love affair with monochromatic tones. 

Here's what women can look forward to when the collection hits the stores: Wide-leg trousers, airy dresses and a novel take on lightweight outerwear — that is, the assymetrical cape-poncho to weather through the occasional rain cloud. 

And for gents — embrace the season's warmth with beachy striped shirts, seersucker jackets and pleat front trousers with elasticated waistbands. Finish off with casual plimsolls (these are unisex) to lockdown the loungewear vibes. 

Shop the Uniqlo x Lemaire SS16 collection at Uniqlo stores located at 313@Somerset, Bugis+, Ion Orchard, Jem and Suntec City Mall from 4 March.
