UNIQLO LifeWear SS 2020

UNIQLO’s new LifeWear collection for Spring/Summer 2020 is as much about function as it is fashion. With a healthy amount of parkas, jackets, and cargo pants, this season’s catalogue is set to weather the elements with style. Divided into three distinct sections; Outdoors, Work & Craft and Art & Design the Life-wear collection has you covered, whoever you are.

UNIQLO found their inspiration in the synergy of urban gardens and rooftop farms. Which is why the collection prioritises bridging the gap between the rural and the urban. From clever materials like quick drying and even parachute fabrics, their pieces are built to be rugged and built to last — without sacrificing the stylish silhouettes and bold colours that we’ve come to expect from UNIQLO.

The Outdoors and Work & Craft categories perfectly personify this unity of values. Featuring pocketable parkas and quick-dry cargo-pants, the Outdoors collection knows that the weather doesn’t stop for work. These pieces are light-weight, portable, and perfect for cyclists, or those who commute often. 

Organic materials, environmentally friendly manufacturing, and a keen eye for quality are the defining features of Work & Craft. With its linen jackets, Polo shirts and classy jogger pants, each piece is distinctly wearable. Versatile not only in their weatherproofing, but in their modern cut and relaxed style as well.

For looks that reflect the city you’re in, the Art & Design section’s meticulously crafted pieces take their design cues from urban architecture and modern skylines. Minimalistic, with long and lean silhouettes. The mineral-hued blazers, Kando Jackets, and trench coats will not only keep you looking stylish, but staying cool with their AIRism comfort features and linen-like fabric. 

Between these three distinct categories, the UNIQLO LifeWear collection is clearly ready for whatever life has to throw at it. With their clean modern cuts ranging from the experimental to the traditional, these looks can be worn to any occasion. Function has never been so fashionable.
