Fashion blogger and brand collabs tend to happen so fast, they leave our heads spinning when we try to keep up. But one recent collab has grabbed our attention and isn't letting go any time soon. Last Friday, Uniqlo teamed up with blogger Hana Tajima to release a line of modest clothing that includes stylish hijab headscarves.
If you don't already follow her fashion inspo-filled blog, Hana is a Muslim fashion designer and blogger and one of a growing number of young Muslim women who are finding it a challenge to dress for both style and spirituality - luckily Hana's Uniqlo collection is well on its way to solving the problem.
Uniqlo describes the collection as being not only designed for women who want modest clothing, but for women who want clothing that is simple, clean and contemporary, and "takes inspiration from an international appreciation of diverse culture and style."
The collection features tons of gorgeous, classic pieces like drapey blouses and dresses and tailored, straight-leg pants in both bright and neutral hues. The most groundbreaking pieces in the collection are without a doubt the hijabs, which are designed to be not only stylish, but are also made with Uniqlo's breathable AIRism fabric.
While Uniqlo x Hana Tajima isn't the first time a brand has made clothes specifically for women who wear modest clothing or hijabs, it represents the first time a major fast fashion giant like Uniqlo has made such a move. The fashion industry is often criticized for its lack of attention to diversity, and while it still has a ways to go, we'd say Uniqlo's collab is a step in the right direction.
