Japanese fashion label Uniqlo is preparing to release its latest designer collaboration with Tomas Maier. The LifeWear capsule draws inspiration from Maier's philosophies and concepts of his "escape" and "time off." The idea that he dials into is to craft apparel that is suitable within the office, but also at the beach. In the designer's statement regarding his collaborative work with Uniqlo, he expresses that his designs are crafted to be versatile; the concept of lounge apparel also working as beach attire maximizes its functionality. The overarching concept of Maier's brand is to breach the conformity of clothing.
This concept translates on the Uniqlo x Tomas Maier collection, offering pieces such as trousers, shorts, jackets, polo shirts, button-up shirts, flip flops and t-shirts. Notably, some pieces such as the shorts can also be worn as swimwear. The collaborative collection will be available at Uniqlo stores and online beginning March 17th.
