Global apparel retailer UNIQLO announces the official launch of the Uniqlo U 2022 Spring/Summer collection starting January 28. Designed by Artistic Director Christophe Lemaire and his UNIQLO R&D team in Paris under the theme the Rhythm of Spring, the Uniqlo U 2022 Spring/Summer collection offers essentials with a point of view in step with the season.
The new Uniqlo U collection captures the motion and lightness of Spring. The collection of essentials adds ease, movement and flexibility to everyday life. Pure and pared-back silhouettes offer simplicity, while crispy jackets and garments with generous silhouettes give a sense of freedom and flexibility. The color range features warm neutrals, olives, sands inspired by fading sunsets, and a pop of taro purple.
Reinvented essentials add more ease and flexibility to daily life. Breezy, layered silhouettes and roomy bags give a sense of freedom of movement. Jackets and coats are perfect for any trip. Essential t-shirts and dresses come in soft AIRism cotton and jersey. Garment-dyed denim and overshirts with a round shape give a softer feel overall.
The lineup for men offers a curated, flexible collection of pieces designed for city life and trips in nature, where simplicity meets refined technicality. Crispy jackets are ideal for walking to work or riding public transport. Roomy, breezy silhouettes made of soft jersey, terry and linen twill bring a sense of ease and movement, and striped summer shirts are perfect for a beach day.
UNIQLO has remade key seasonal items from the main collection into relaxed shapes for active kids. New essentials offer comfort, while ease of movement is built into loose, generous pieces with room for growth over months or years.
