Fashion and Beauty


Uniqlo has partnered with several artists for its latest collection, celebrating beautiful silhouettes and functional designs.

/ 29 January 2021

Future LifeWear essentials, designed with the highest precision and in pursuit of a simplified, modern wardrobe.

Artistic Director Christophe Lemaire and his team in Paris reimagine everyday clothing using innovative materials and contemporary silhouettes for the Uniqlo Spring/Summer 2021 collection.

This the 10th collaboration between Christophe and UNIQLO, representing an evolution by pairing subtlety and comfort with the Uniqlo U signature neutral tones and classic looks. New this season is a refreshing contrast between black and white with clean, cosmopolitan styling. Setups with the same fabrics and denim-on-denim, and off-white layered styling keep wearers looking and feeling relaxed under the bright sunlight of this time of the year. Classic shirts and dresses employ elegantly lustrous, sheer fabrics for a more refined look. Debuting this season is a kid’s collection that retains the Uniqlo U ethos in perfected designs. 

Changing lifestyles with Hana Tajima

Moreover, the lifestyle brand has worked together with New York-based fashion designer Hana Tajima. The range expresses the world’s rich cultural diversity through elegant styling, comfort, attention to detail, and universal design. The line is versatile and for women of all ages. 

Living environments are changing, blurring the boundaries of daily activities. As societies become more diverse and mature, clothing is evolving away from stereotypical styles for particular occasions toward universally accessible items for all aspects of life. The Spring/Summer 2021 collection reflects these considerations in making every day more comfortable.

Rayon linen is in everything from bottoms to outerwear because it cools while draping well. Wavy textured seersucker makes pants look slightly less casual and versatile for countless situations. Finely detailed and elegant T blouses incorporate in-trend sheer cotton georgette fabric that is softly translucent and features iconic soft geometric patterns. Organic lines and colors embody the fabric texture. This season, the collection combines the comfort of relaxed silhouettes with subtly feminine details. 

British Heritage Meets LifeWear Innovation for All with JW Anderson

UNIQLO and JW ANDERSON blends the inspired British classic styles of designer Jonathan Anderson with the UNIQLO commitment to creating clothing that offers outstanding quality, materials, and functionality. Spring/Summer 2021 marks the seventh season of the designer collaboration. 

Spring’s renewal inspired the new collection. Jonathan Anderson reflected arts and crafts in this season’s items, which embody his exceptional creative proficiency. Shirts, dresses, and other pieces employ light linen, cotton, and other naturally textured fabrics in smoky hues for vintage touches. Blanket stitching, floral embroidery, smocking, and other touches throughout the collection convey the serenity of spring, the warmth of handiworks, and a positive mood that represents the start of a new season. 

Observing the logic hidden in historical masterpieces with the Musée du Louvre UT Collection

This commemorative first series is part of a partnership between UNIQLO and the Louvre that will begin from 2021. This collection, which expresses historical masterpieces such as Mona Lisa through the unique interpretations of UT, is refined LifeWear based on the shared desire of UNIQLO and the Louvre to color life through art.

The Mens UT line, created by English graphic artist Peter Saville, is designed around the theme of “Art and Logic.” Saville has focused on the logic hidden in art – such as the inventory numbers assigned to the works held in the Musée du Louvre, or the “golden ratio” used in the composition of numerous artworks – and incorporated these elements into the designs. The Louvre exhibits 35,000 works in eight curatorial departments. To showcase the breadth of the men’s collection, representative works were selected from four of these departments. Well-known works such as the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace and the Venus de Milo are reinterpreted through Savilles urbane graphic style.

Commenting on this collaboration collection, Saville said, “I was intrigued by the fact that at the Louvre, the world-famous Mona Lisa is known as painting ‘No. INV 779,’ which is its internal inventory number. I was inspired by that. Like many people, when I look at works of art Im also conscious of their constituent geometry. I thought that exploring that viewpoint on a T-shirt would be appropriate for this UT / Louvre collaboration.”
