UNIQLO, a Japanese worldwide clothing company, brings us the delights of clothes with its Spring/Summer 2022 collection. Whether in the city, nature, at home, or at the beach, the collection offers fresh, comfortable, functional, and attractive pieces that are ideal for the season. During the virtual conference Ms. Jami Barra & Ms. Bea Constantino introduced to us the new offering of UNIQLO, as they launched their 2022 Spring/Summer collection. I was thrilled since I’m a huge fan of this brand, the quality and designs suit my taste well. It’s so comfy to wear and so stylish. This brand is really for all ages. I’m so excited for their new collection since everything is so fascinating and will surely be loved by everyone, as they choose the perfect palette to cater everyone’s taste and styles.
THE PLEASURES OF CLOTHING
This season, UNIQLO is focusing on the simple pleasures that arise when people and clothes meet. There’s a blazer or dress that portrays modern city life, a comfy pair of shorts for a journey to the great outdoors, and breezy linens and madras shirts in vibrant hues that can be worn at the beach in the latest collection. This season, UNIQLO introduces four sub-themes, all of which are designed to convey happiness and comfort to the wearer during these bright days.
The Pleasures of Skyline
City inhabitants appreciate the conveniences of a cosmopolitan lifestyle: a friendly neighborhood cafe, a shop selling artisanal cheeses, and restaurants serving farm-to-table cuisine. This metropolitan lifestyle necessitates current and modern clothing that may be worn both on and off the job.
The Joys of Landscape
Relish life off the grid, the rustling of the wind in the trees and the crunching of leaves under the shoes, with colors and textures that blend in with the scenery of nature.
The Joys of Imagination
Art and sophisticated designs stir the senses. Imaginations are supposed to wander and enter brilliant new worlds so UNIQLO found inspiration in vibrant and uplifting colors.
The Joys of Sun and Seaside
An afternoon by the beach while soaking in the sun and feeling the breeze calls for natural textures, linen fabric, and clothes that drape effortlessly over the body. These are comfortable to wear and more importantly, easy to shed off when it’s time for a dip.
The UNIQLO U line for this season is designed to support the everyday rhythms of a variety of lifestyles. For the utmost in comfort, artistic director Christophe Lemaire and the design team in Paris created relaxed, loose-fitting, and clean designs. The palette, which includes earth tones like brown, khaki, and olive, reflects this. Warm, neutral colors like faded tones of orange and green, as well as military blue, show. This season, a children’s collection will be available once more.
UT promises a varied variety of hobbies, including film, art, and photography, for this season’s UNIQLO fascinating collection of t-shirts inspired by art, music, movies, manga, and other forms of culture.
Joshua Vides’ monochromatic Mickey Mouse work is a highlight this season. The artist is known for his immersive installations and objects that encapsulate pop art’s essence. Following that is a collection created in partnership with Magnum Photos, a cooperative that has photographed most of the world’s important events and figures since the 1930s. Alec Soth, Eli Reed, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, Elliott Erwitt, and Martin Parr shot memorable pictures for the collection.
A collection featuring Keith Haring’s inaugural exhibition at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery in New York City in 1982 is also included. Collections of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat’s work will join Haring’s.
Apart from the sub-themes, UNIQLO is offering collaborations that reflect different aesthetics, but are all grounded by joy:
Hana Tajima returns to create UNIQLO’s first collection dedicated to dresses. This season, the New York-based fashion designer created garments that are made to be lived in, with understated yet iconic styles.
The collection features deep greens and blues inspired by nature and flower patterns found in Tajima’s garden. These patterns can also be found on hand-drawn scarves.
Inès de la Fressange
Inès De la Fressange turns to the colorful Moroccan city of Marrakesh in creating this season’s collection. The designer crafted high-quality and elegant yet casual items that liberally use cotton, linen, and silk.
The womenswear lineup is infused with menswear elements in natural colors and warm accents in reds, oranges, and pinks. The collection stays true to de la Fressange’s DNA of effortless chic that is truly French, truly Inès.
Jonathan Anderson, who is never far from the sea, was inspired by sailing and the culture of seaside towns and ports when developing this collection. The sapphire blues of the sea, the soft browns of seashores, and the calming beiges of chalk cliffs are combined with red, green, and blue elements, reminiscent of maritime signal flags.
The nautical narrative is expressed through rope details, performance fabrics, patchwork, and asymmetrical elements.
UNIQLO’s 2022 Spring/Summer collection will be available starting February in all stores nationwide.
At the event, UNIQLO announces the launch of the 2022 Spring/Summer issue of LifeWear magazine this month of February 2022. LifeWear magazine is a free publication that conveys the UNIQLO LifeWear philosophy of making the everyday lives of people richer and more comfortable. The theme of issue 06 for Spring/Summer is “The Joys of Clothing,” presenting reflections on the simple pleasures found in wearing clothes. Through such features as an interview with filmmaker Sofia Coppola, and the fashion story of UNIQLO and JW ANDERSON as photographed by the Australian periodical frankie magazine, this issue focuses on our positive relationship with clothing.
The opening pages are adorned with fashion designs showcasing the featured themes. New UNIQLO collections for the season are presented through 18 pop topics. This feature presents colorful and inspiring items perfect for spring and summer – including madras check patterns, chambray shirts and sheer cardigans.
