True to form, Christophe Lemaire’s UNIQLO U makes its return for FW22 armed with a sophisticated selection of minimalist garments rooted in function.
If you find yourself building your wardrobe from the bottom up, you can’t go wrong with a dip into UNIQLO’s selection. Whether you need the perfect weight short sleeve white tee, a pair of everyday black tailored pants, or a simple button-up, it’s got your covered. Personally, I’ll never stop hyping up its socks – the best comfort, colors, and price in the game.
While its standard line-up will do wonders for your wardrobe basics, where it really excels is UNIQLO U. Pieced together by Artistic Director Christophe Lemaire, UNIQLO U offers essentials that boast quality and impeccable design.
With each collection, there is a clear, maintained focus on a core selection of staples, covering tops, pants, shirting, and outerwear, which are developed and refined season-to-season. Basically, if you end up finding your perfect pair of dress pants, you’ll likely find them in a new color or fabrication the following season, allowing you to build a palatable base of day-to-day garments.
FW22 fails to break formula, instead elevating its concise lineup through a focused lens. Standouts include a multi-pocketed short utility jacket, packable long coat, ribbed knitwear, wide-fit corduroy work pants, and selvage denim.
As is standard, the selection comes rendered in a muted palette that applies to the everyday. You’ll find UNIQLO U’s FW22 collection via the brand’s Japanese site and stores from September 16, with a European launch likely to follow close behind.
