Well that is not a pairing we would have thought of – Cyndi Lauper and Tavi Gevinson? But Uniqlo clearly knew what they were doing when they cast the fifteen year old fashion editor with Girls Just Want To Have Fun singer Cyndi Lauper. The two ladies of varying shades of blond have teamed up with Uniqlo to model the latest Uniqlo and Orla Kiely collaboration, as well as the new Uniqlo coloured trouser range. Covering all bases with pastel and bold shades of trews in pink, orange, blue, pale green, grey, taupe and white.
Tavi is really becoming a jack-of-all-trades of late. From blogging to editing, to singing (remember that party last week during New York Fashion Week?) and now modelling, we feel a little world-domination coming on. She’s like an Olsen twin! Cyndi Lauper has been much quieter of late, and after her time as a MAC Viva Glam ambassador we’re glad to see her flexing her model muscles again!
The Orla Kiely and Uniqlo collaboration is exactly how we were hoping it would look – simple staples cut really well, like Uniqlo does best, matched with Orla Kiely’s iconic graphic prints. And they look so pretty with the smile-making shades of jeans too. We reckon the t-shirts, dresses, shirts and stoles will be a huge success!
How AMAZING would it be if Tavi and Cyndi sang a duet – we presume they’re best friends now?!
