No matter how horrible your Christmas was or how bad you think New Year’s Eve is going to be (we’ve got you covered on that one here and here), 2016 is a chance to discard all negativities and embrace the new. While we’re not saying that buying new clothes is key to happiness, it’s always nice to start the year with new acquisitions to look and feel good.
Other than the affordable staple offerings that Uniqlo is known for (arguably the best cotton T-shirts around), the LifeWear range of products is bringing in new collaborations and most importantly, comfortable quality clothes the first half of 2016.
UTs (Uniqlo T-shirts)
What: The ubiquitous range of T-shirts that’s pop culture and graphic art all in one.
Look out for: Designs by Italian picture book artist and designer Bruno Munari, LEGO-themed artwork, musicians from the Universal label, as well as designs from new artists in the SPRZ NY collaboration with New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
What: Your best bet to never being embarrassed about sweat spots on clothes ever again.
Look out for: Seamless V-neck T-shirts. Using thin and durable stitching in its construction, it remains unnoticeable when wearing one under close-fitting tops.
UNIQLO AND LEMAIRE
Look out for: French-minimalism and carefully thought out design details that Lemaire is known for. If the previous collection was heavy on wool, summer fabrics like cotton poplin, cotton linen and lightweight cotton cashmere knits make up the bulk of the collection. Colours include ginger, mahogany, honey and a mixture of half-tones to reflect fabrics that have been faded by sunlight.
LIBERTY LONDON for UNIQLO
What: The first collaboration with famed print fabric makers, Liberty London.
Look out for: A floral print explosion in light and comfortable fabrics.
Uniqlo is available at the following locations.
