LifeWear FALL / WINTER 2022

How do you feel about this story?


Today’s Classics
When you hear “classics,” what comes to mind?
Maybe a tweed jacket, trench coat, or cashmere sweater,
beloved items that have stood the test of time.
But even these longstanding classics can evolve over the years.
Warmer and lighter jackets, water-repellent coats,
and knitwear made using WHOLEGARMENT® technology.
These updates maintain an authentic look
while adapting to the needs of today’s lifestyle.
The lineup also features denim that requires much less water*,
jackets made using recycled down,
and fleeces spun from plastic bottles,
items that will guide us toward a sustainable future.
We’ve taken a balanced and holistic approach,
creating essentials that are made for all.
By designing classics for today that will last into the future,
UNIQLO makes LifeWear for today and for tomorrow.

August 31, 2022 Manila, Philippines – Japanese global apparel retailer UNIQLO redefines what
classics are with the launch of its Fall/Winter 2022 collection. Dubbed Today’s Classics, the new
collection of LifeWear is filled with wardrobe staples that have been reinvented to adapt to the
needs of today’s lifestyle.
“There is a reason why our LifeWear pieces such as the tweed jacket, trench coat, or cashmere
sweater are loved through the years. They are designed well and effectively serve their purpose.
UNIQLO, however, believes that even these classics can evolve with the times. That’s the
inspiration behind this season’s collection,” says Geraldine Sia, UNIQLO Philippines’ COO.
For Fall/Winter 2022, UNIQLO has designed warmer and lighter jackets, water-repellent coats,
and knitwear made using *WHOLEGARMENT® technology. Emphasizing sustainability, this new
collection features denims that require much less water during production, and jackets and
fleeces made from recycled plastic bottles.
