And as last gem, Lulu released a little anticipation of a possible future collaboration. She said: "I wanted the Uniqlo UT collaboration to follow my mainline handbag collection as much as possible, so that it truly represent the Lulu Guinness brand. I looked at many icons, and also my inspirations for the Lulu Guinness spring/summer 2012 collection, and pulled together my favourite desigsn which I then worked into the T-shirt design. My iconic lips were important as was my Cameo and my favourite print, Doll Face which was inspired by Peggy Moffitt".
What should we expect now? A future Lulu Guinness own clothing line?
