Three years after exiting her role as artistic director of Givenchy (owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE), Clare Waight Keller is returning to fashion with a new label.

The British designer, acclaimed for her designs at Givenchy and Chloé has teamed up with Uniqlo for a collection dubbed, Uniqlo: C.

It is understood her chic and affordable designs for the Japanese fashion chain will reach stores September 15.

The debut collection comprises a curated selection of 30 pieces encompassing outerwear, tops, skirts, dresses, and more. Many echo her Givenchy and Chloé collections.

Yukihiro Katsuta, Uniqlo’s head of research and development, said this in a statement on choosing to approach Waight Keller on this project, “I’ve studied a lot of designers, and what distinguishes Clare is that she makes great clothing with a female essence. I believe her wealth of experience and her designs that fully appreciate the modern woman will usher in a new standard of LifeWear for women.”

In a statement Waight Keller said, “I aimed to distill the core of my aesthetic—fluidity, motion, femininity—these elements were pivotal. I also sought to infuse my British sensibilities—a touch of boy-meets-girl charm, an element of attitude.”

Waight Keller would join an illustrious clutch of designers that have collaborated with Uniqlo, including Jil Sander, Jonathan Anderson, Christophe Lemaire, Tomas Maier and Undercover’s Jun Takahashi and Inès de la Fressange.

Uniqlo operates some 2,400 stores around the world, and their parent company is Fast Retailing Co. Ltd.
