In keeping with the demands of modern living, Uniqlo is introducing a functional Lifewear Spring/Summer 2021 range as well as designer collaborations to help keep us comfortable at home and outside. Indeed as countries around the globe are experiencing the occurrence of coronavirus waves, and some stay-at-home orders are being put in place; wearing comfortable stay-at-home fashions will help keep a positive and healthy mindset as we overcome changes.

For their Lifewear Spring/Summer 2021 range, there are three key ranges to take notice of: Transitional, Home and Fresh Air & Fit.

In Transitional wear, Uniqlo understands that the boundaries between home and places of work or study have been blurred, making comfort even more important. The demand for fabrics and textures catering to more active lifestyles and easy-care cleaning is imperative when choosing clothes. Now more than ever, people need everyday items that fit their lifestyles.

The key takeaways here are the ease of movement and fabric that wicks away sweat. A satin relaxed straight pants accentuate our dressing by giving the wearer an elegant look; while a washed utility jacket doubles up as a work jacket that’s perfect for Zoom presentation calls.

In the Fresh Air & Fit range, Uniqlo is concentrating on lighter, soft fabrics that are perfect for exercising in the outdoor environment as we are spending more time outdoors to immerse ourselves in nature. For women, the high-performance Ultra Stretch Dry Sweat Pull Parka is quick-drying and offers excellent comfort and ease of movement – perfect for your chilly, early morning runs. For men, the Nylon Gear 3D utility pants feature a fast-drying heavy-duty fabric and handy side pockets and are equally perfect for the great outdoors or getting about in town.

In the Home range, Uniqlo is introducing clothing that are relaxing and presentable, accompanied with highly functional accessories that also improves the quality of life at home. Items in the Airism range include the cotton Ribbed V-Neck Bra Tank Top and bed sheet and pillow covers for a well-rested time at home.

Fans of Uniqlo’s designer collaborations would be pleased to know that Parisian designer Ines de la Fressange renews her collaboration and is introducing a nautical line, inspired by Deauville, a refined seaside resort in northwestern France to which Parisians flock in summer.

New York-based fashion designer Hana Tajima intends to make everyday clothing accessible for women of all ages. Tajima injects the world’s rich cultural diversity through elegant styling, comfort, attention to detail, and universal design into her collection, and it’s evident in breathable materials like linen and cotton georgette fabric.

Uniqlo U marks the 10th collaboration between artistic director Christophe Lemaire and Uniqlo. The Spring/Summer 2021 collection represents an evolution by pairing subtlety and comfort with Uniqlo U’s signature neutral tones and classic looks. New this season is a refreshing contrast between black and white with clean, cosmopolitan styling. Debuting this season is a Kid’s collection that retains the Uniqlo U ethos in perfected designs.
