Japanese global apparel retailer UNIQLO redefines what classics are with the launch of its Fall/Winter 2022 collection. Dubbed Today’s Classics, the new collection of LifeWear is filled with wardrobe staples that have been reinvented to adapt to the needs of today’s lifestyle.
Uniqlo U 2022 Fall/Winter began with the idea of a capsule wardrobe that could fit into a single suitcase, adaptable enough to take you through an entire season with essentials that pay special attention to functionality and versatility.
A New Genderless Offering
The men’s and women’s design teams worked together to create a concise collection of genderless essentials such as the practical pocketable long coat and workwear-inspired utility short blouson jacket, varied in size but not design, that reflect a modern approach to dressing. Boxy silhouettes and roomy proportions are suited to many body types and layer effortlessly with both the men’s and women’s garments.
Essentials for our Lifestyles
The women’s collection features carefully considered essentials that provide practicality, comfort, and versatility in our daily lives. Utilitarian, layered silhouettes are both beautiful and functional: coats made for commuting, soft wool knits, menswear-inspired shirts, classic high-waisted jeans with a modern, rounded leg. The men’s lineup is a thoughtfully curated, versatile collection of pieces designed for city life and outdoor pursuits. Generous, boxy layers made of soft wool, flannel and cotton jersey bring a sense of warmth and comfort. The perfect chino pants modernize the classic workwear style with a wide, tapered leg.
A range of sophisticated new colors - bright ochre yellow, purple, washed red and warm white - complement rich neutrals, grounded in nature.
The lineup includes 25 items for women, 22 items for men, and 1 items for kids.
UNIQLO R&D Centers
Uniqlo U is a collection of “Future LifeWear Essentials.” The world-class designers and patternmakers in the Paris design team reimagine everyday clothing using innovative materials and new, contemporary silhouettes. Each season is designed with the highest precision and in pursuit of a simplified, modern wardrobe.
UNIQLO R&D Centers are places for experimentation, spaces to try new ideas, innovate and create. The Paris R&D Center complements other UNIQLO R&D Centers in Tokyo, Shanghai, New York, and Los Angeles.
