To introduce the Uniqlo HEATTECH collection, the brand has partnered with creative types who showcase their skills in the urban context. One such "creative type" is Steve Wheen, otherwise known as the Pothole Gardener.

Wheen brightens up the city streets of London with miniature garden installations. Though London is a dynamic metropolis, it can get very dreary and grey during the colder months. Wheen's mini-gardens add a dash of warmth and color. He explains, "I love the reaction on people's faces when they stumble across my little gardens. At first it’s a puzzled look, and then it’s a smile."

Wheen doesn't let the weather stop him from enjoying his city, and we're extremely grateful about that!
