This Uniqlo collaboration with former Hermes designer Christophe Lemaire is full of knit basics that will quickly become wardrobe favorites.

Featuring rich cashmere and cozy knits in highly wearable silhouettes and patterns, the Lemaire Uniqlo collaboration brings a solid, serious element to this fall's fashion lineup. The entire collection looks like it should belong to an elegant gallery owner or a well-established playwright. Each item in the collection could easily be layered and matched or worn on its own to work or as casual weekend wear.

This Uniqlo collaboration is a great example of a high-fashion designer partnering with a consumer brand to create a line of memorable pieces that are very stylish while remaining affordable. Uniqlo is known to take it a step further by introducing a level of quality beyond the usual fast fashion fare.
