Although Uniqlo will open a store in SF for their first foray into West Coast expansion, they're still showing love to LA. As a follow-up to the global retailer's continuous crowd-pleasing collaborations with Culver City-based label Velvet by Graham & Spencer, our sister site Racked National notes that they've teamed up once again on a limited-edition range of summer basics.

Founded in 1997 by Jenny Graham and Toni Spencer, Velvet is known for its sharp selection of soft tees that have been championed on the pages of fashion rags like Vogue, Elle and Glamour. Since their 10-piece capsule with Uniqlo will only be available at Uniqlo stores (we could really use that proposed e-commerce site right about now), we're turning to Velvet's own summer offerings to hold us over.
