UNIQLO launches Fall/Winter 2022 collection; features baggy jeans, colourful knit sweaters
The collection comprises four categories — Outerwear, Knitwear, Bottoms and Sport Utility Wear.
Today’s Classics — the theme for UNIQLO’s new Fall/Winter 2022 season — centres around making modern improvements to beloved staple pieces.
“These updates maintain an authentic look while adapting to the needs of today’s lifestyle,” said the fashion brand in a press release.
The collection is grouped into four categories — Outerwear, Knitwear, Bottoms and Sport Utility Wear.
The Outerwear collection has been expanded to include a wide range of styles from lighter shirt jackets to wool coats that can be worn on different occasions.
Among this collection is a short-length puffy jacket that’s designed using a glossy and reflective material.
The jacket will be available in black, grey, beige and off-white.
For Knitwear, the focus is on diversity in colours as well as the utilisation of the latest technology while making the apparel, according to UNIQLO.
Wearable offerings include long sleeve cashmere sweaters and turtlenecks that are 3D knitted using Shima Seiki’s WHOLEGARMENT technology.
A genderless knitted vest that comes in neutral shades of gray, black, beige and olive will also be available as part of the Knitwear selection.
UNIQLO has also decided to hop on the wide-leg trend for its Bottoms, pushing out baggy jeans and pants with flared silhouettes.
Also part of this line-up are pleated pants with a wide tapered cut, allowing for a more relaxed outline.
The two-way stretch material and elastic waist means that the pleated pants can be dressed up or down.
Finally, UNIQLO’s Sports Utility Wear pivots on functionality in varying settings.
The collection comprises items like the DRY Sweat Cropped Full-Zip Hoodie ($49.90) which offer the brand’s DRY technology that can wick moisture away quickly.
There is also the Stretch DRY sweat pants which has a cotton-like surface and a refined shape, making it appropriate for both sports and dailywear.
In line with UNIQLO’s previous releases, this Fall/Winter collection also places a strong emphasis on sustainability.
The outer material for this season’s apparel is made entirely from recycled polyester in comparison to last season where the ratio of recycled polyester was only 30 per cent.
The repair studio which first launched at UNIQLO’s 51@AMK outlet in March this year will also be rolled out in more stores across Singapore.
These studios will provide clothing repairs and remake services, allowing customers to extend the lifespan of their pre-existing garments.
For those who are interested, the full collection will be available in-store and on UNIQLO’s website.
