Global apparel retailer UNIQLO recently announced the launch of the Uniqlo U 2022 Fall/Winter collection on October 6, 2022. Dubbed 'Essentials with a Point of View,' the collection was designed by Artistic Director Christophe Lemaire and his UNIQLO R&D team in Paris. The new collection offers a more considered take on minimalism with pieces that focus on functionality and versatility.
Together, the men's and women's design teams created a concise collection of genderless essentials, such as workwear-inspired utility short blouson jackets and practical pocketable long coats that differ in size but not in design. Each piece is both utilitarian and beautiful for a modern, timeless aesthetic.
The entire lineup includes outerwear, sweaters, denim, and more for adults and kids.
