Gentlewoman style: Uniqlo U AW17



Uniqlo U autumn-winter 2017

The Uniqlo U AW17 collection has started to arrive in stores and online (the U.S has it already and the UK will get it at 8am on Thursday) and it’s always good to see how Christophe Lemaire marries classic ‘LifeWear’ with seasonal colours and silhouettes.

Even if you don’t think of yourself as someone who follows trends, there are always certain tendencies that capture the public’s imagination and take hold for more than a season. Volume and padded protection are two that have seen more than a couple of winters now. The beautiful Uniqlo U blue padded coat manages to look comfortable and luxe here; hopefully the same will be true IRL. The outerwear is definitely the strongest category from Uniqlo U; I also really like the hooded trench number and the double-face wrap camel coat.

Colour-wise, it’s about that rich camel, the rust reds, the deep blue and lots of cream and khaki. Again, these are classic neutrals that happen to be knocking about in fashion right now. Which is a good thing because if you like them, there are more of them around. Corduroy is another right-for-now trend that suits Uniqlo U and I can see these brick red cords selling fast. (Also worth noting: the stand collar long sleeve shirt dress from summer is back.)

Quote of the day: Christophe Lemaire



Christophe lemaire on the everyday uniform

“If you can step away from the system of changing a collection every six months, you realize that you do not want to change your wardrobe every season, you just want to build your wardrobe. If you notice someone really elegant, you will notice that there is a kind of uniformity, a kind of stability. I think stylish people know themselves, they know how to dress, they know what suits them, their body — and what makes them feel confident. That’s not changing every six months — that’s just absurd.”
Christophe Lemaire, New York Times T Magazine
