Uniqlo U by Christophe Lemaire reinterprets basics for Fall 2017

If you’re updating your wardrobe for fall, you’re in luck. Uniqlo’s artistic director Christophe Lemaire and his team are back at it again with a third Uniqlo U collection from its research and development centre in Paris. Described as a collection of progressive essentials, the collection aims to reinterpret menswear and womenswear basics for the 2017 fall/ winter season.

While the Japanese casual wear manufacturer is known for its high-quality basics, the Uniqlo U FW17 collection takes things up a notch with a distinctly luxurious look. Besides a typically muted autumnal colour palette, the sophisticated collection also features free-flowing materials and unique silhouettes. Pieces are made from top-notch fabrics with more specialised and labour-intensive sewing techniques, as well as cutting-edge techniques.

Two key features are also introduced in the Fall 2017 range, namely its groundbreaking 3D U-Knit technology (which allows for three-dimensional weaving without seams), as well as the enhancement of windproof quality in outerwear — which the brand achieved by decreasing the number of stitches required for each piece.

Prices range from S$7.90 to S$199.90 and you can shop the collection when it’s available both at UNIQLO Orchard Central and online on 6 October. Some items are also available in selected stores.
