UNIQLO Unveils Their Fall/Winter 2020 Launches. UNIQLO presents their 4 upcoming drops and collaborations for the Fall/Winter season.
In the past week, UNIQLO has unveiled their upcoming launches for the Fall/Winter season. The presentation included 4 different collections, all to be released in the next quarter, ranging from new interpretations of their Lifewear line (Sustainable Cities and Future Lifewear), as well as collaborations with designers Hana Tajima and Ines de la Fressange.
Sustainable Cities Lifewear
In their Lifewear F/W 2020 collection, Sustainable Cities, UNIQLO focuses on creating garments with simple designs but innovative and high-quality textiles that are best suited for your daily needs. This season, the brand also pays attention to three different elements of a better life by providing modern and comfortable designs for each category. The first category, The Outdoors, has a more streetwear look that’s designed for a more urban and active lifestyle, including pieces like the Ultra Light Down outerwear and the Blocktech coats. The Work & Craft category focuses on work-appropriate clothes that are minimal with a touch of preppy, including soft chiffon blouses and rustic tweed jackets. Their third category is the Art & Design one, where texture and nuance of the garments are the utmost priority. Combining rich textures with soft seaming, the georgette blouses, pleated skirts and others from the collection gives a clean and timeless impression.
Hana Tajima for Uniqlo
Another launch for the brand this coming season is a collaboration with New York-based designer Hana Tajima. This comfort-centric collection serves as an expression of the diverse range of culture in the world that’s translated into versatile and elegant looks. Targeted to the modern woman, this collection allows wearers to look fresh and easy while feeling comfortable doing everyday activities. The collection is mainly in warm neutral colours along with subtle leaf and nature patterns, whilst the silhouette stays minimal and easy, allowing wearers to style it in several ways.
Future LifeWear Essentials
For the Future LifeWear Essentials, Artistic Director Christophe Lemaire and his team reinterprets everyday clothes using innovative materials and contemporary shapes. For the womenswear line, the focus was on comfort, with the garments using an array of materials like satin, viscose and corduroy. The collection also balances the masculine silhouette with feminine details like butterfly ruffles and a chic colour palette. As for menswear, the clothes were designed with the concept of layered styling in mind. The pieces that are as trendy as they are functional are easy to coordinate with one another, and will provide warmth and comfort for the coming season.
UNIQLO / Ines de la Fressange
This season UNIQLO collaborates with global icon Ines de la Fressange on an essentials line that combines the brands LifeWear philosophy with the designer’s signature femininity. The collection is inspired by the newfound freedom and liberation obtained by women in the 1970s. Jane Birkin, Diane Keaton and Ali MacGraw were all muses in this aspect of the collection. Classic femme pieces like wrap dresses, silk blouses, pleated skirts with paisley and polka dot prints are all part of the collaboration as well as several knitwear pieces for the winter season, giving the entire collection an elegant yet easygoing feel.
