Uniqlo's Spring/Summer 2022 Collection Is Here, And It's a Breath of Fresh Air
From dressing to the nines to wearing joggers on rotation as we transition to working from home, the pandemic has redefined how we dress up and view clothing. Right now, we've moved on to pieces that provide relaxation and ease our day-to-day functions. If you're in the same boat but are looking to spice up your wardrobe, you're in luck as Uniqlo has just launched its spring/summer collection for this season.
Inspired by the joys of clothing and nature, the collection showcases sophisticated staples that rise up to any occasion. Whether you're exploring the city or going on new adventures, these pieces have been tailored to suit every lifestyle—be it for coffee chats and Zoom meetings to road trips with friends (or if you just feel like lounging at home in style, because why not).
Renowned, French creative director, Christopher Lemaire, has designed the Uniqlo U line with comfort and versatility in mind. The latest collection features breathable yet elegant clothing such as pristine cotton shirts, cozy ribbed sweaters, and linen button-ups.
Oh, and these come in multiple colors too, so you can be a serial outfit repeater on the low. The brand's classic selection, of jackets and coats in earthy tones, is also perfect for light layering. We especially have our eye on this cool mahogany piece that would be a great addition to your clothing rotation.
But wait, there's more. Like what you see? These designs are available for your viewing pleasure in Uniqlo's upcoming LifeWear magazine. Reminiscent of a popular recipe book in the U.S., "Joy of Cooking," the publication—like the kitchen—reinforces the intimate experience of selecting and styling outfits.
"We want this issue to be an opportunity for people to encounter preppy spring moods and colorful clothing," said Takahiro Kinoshita, Uniqlo's Fast Retailing Group executive vice president and creative director. Readers may also browse through style guides and exclusive interviews with industry leaders, for free.
And, that's not the only surprise up their sleeves. Uniqlo has teamed up with artists from around the globe to celebrate art, music, film, manga, and pop culture. The lineup includes the likes of installation artist, Joshua Vides, and the iconic photography cooperative Magnum Photos. It has also tapped visionaries such as Hana Tajima, Inès De la Fressange, and Jonathan Anderson.
The crowd-favorite surely has a lot in store for us this season. So, it's safe to say we'll be hitting the racks in no time. Perhaps, if you haven't already, it's about time to replace your joggers with a pair from Uniqlo. Don't forget to grab a copy of LifeWear magazine while you're at it too.
