Simplicity meets elegance and convenience:

International clothing retailer UNIQLO today announces that it will launch the Uniqlo U fall / winter collection on September 17. The collection, designed by artistic director Christophe Lemaire and his UNIQLO R&D team in Paris, updates the well-known classics in a varied color palette. The use of neutral tones in combination with deep, muted colors evoke a feeling of warmth and comfort. The new collection consists of items for women, items for men and accessories.

New for women: details and comfort:

Lemaire's inspiration can clearly be found in minimalism this season. This manifests itself in simplistic and functional pieces designed to further expand a modern wardrobe. The classics have been updated with new details and more comfort; the color palette has also been broadened by adding more neutral, warm tones. Especially the gray-blue color that we see this season, provides a subtle contrast in the collection – it is also the perfect color to wear all year round. Satin and crinkled viscose provide a luxurious accent and provide a sophisticated addition to these simplistic silhouettes.

A long, padded jacket elegantly combines volume with softness and warmth. The vintage-inspired dresses feature refined details and a relaxed fit, while the knits sensually embrace the body shape. A boxy jacket is worked out in a wool blend, which provides the perfect mix of a cool, masculine look with feminine shapes.

New for men: refined warmth:

The energetic European street culture from previous decades can be seen as a spearhead in the inspiration for the men's line. We see classic sports elements combined with cool boxy fits and oversized silhouettes. The neutral tones provide a classic look and, in combination with black, white and dark blue, form the perfect wardrobe. This season's rich accents come mainly from orange tones and a deep burgundy. Textures such as corduroy, a wool blend fleece and wool jersey provide even more comfort.

A quilted corduroy shirt in a casual tapered silhouette makes it both sophisticated and warm. A key piece from the collection is the boxy half-length coat, featuring an oversized collar and storm closure at the front. This jacket stylishly offers resistance to rainy weather conditions. The application of soft fleece on a shirt jacket ensures that it can be worn both indoors and outdoors. Even the shorter coats will help you through the cold this season because they are made of wool blend fleece.
