Uniqlo, the Japanese global apparel retailer, will launch its U 2019 Spring/Summer collection at its stores and its website tomorrow (January 18).

The Christophe Lemaire-led design team at the Uniqlo Paris R&D Centre has once again drawn on new materials and advanced technology in exploring and innovating clothing essentials. This latest U collection is inspired by saturated earth tones countering rich, tinted hues and bold accents. Garment details and silhouettes have been simplified to accentuate Uniqlo U’s most ambitious palette to date. The result is a spirited celebration of colour applied across a canvas of iconic wardrobe essentials, each thoughtfully reconsidered and realised in its purest form, complemented by a redesigned collection logo to offer a new look for Uniqlo U LifeWear.

Mainstay crewneck T-shirts include new silhouettes and come in 12 vivid colour variations for men and 13 for women. New this season are crewneck T-shirts made from soft fabrics and with casual boxy silhouettes. For men, these items include six with solid colours and four with border hues. There are 10 solid colours for women. 

Uniqlo U range’s first-ever linen pieces, with dynamic patterns and colour blocks are also being introduced. The collection will offer linen shirts for men, the first time this fabric has appeared in the collection. The soft fabric combines with an attractively straight silhouette to complete a contemporary look. For women, the line-up incorporates dynamic patterns that complement vibrant seasonal hues. 

Special patterns feature on open collar shirts, shorts, and dresses. The popular swimwear range offers new designs in green, yellow, and pale pink. The reduction in braided seams ensures incredible comfort, making the swimwear perfect for the beach and for exercising. The range comprises six items, including a bikini and a one-piece.
