Uniqlo is set to level up today’s summer wear as it partners up with internationally renowned designer Tomas Maier for the Tomas Maier and Uniqlo Resort Wear Collection. This collab also marks the brand’s entry into the resort wear game.
Designer Tomas Maier, Botegga Veneta's creative director, is a popular luxury clothing creator.
The new range fuses Tomas Maier’s “time off” and “escape” philosophies with Uniqlo’s distinctive high-quality clothing. The collection exhorts people make the most out of their time, be it while relaxing at a resort or winding down after grueling day at work.
“Our new collection is designed to work in many different ways," Maier said in a statement. "Beach attire can turn into lounge wear, casual cover-ups paired with polo shirts can easily be worn in town—this is the concept of my brand. Things work in many ways. Even if bought for a special trip or occasion the customer will soon discover these garments adapt to a year-round life.”
Yuki Katsuta, group senior vice president of Fast Retailing and head of Global R&D at Uniqlo adds: “We have been delighted to collaborate with Tomas Maier in creating this exciting new LifeWear range. I am sure people will love mixing and matching pieces from our first resort wear collection, adding a splash of summer fun to everyday living, weekends, and vacation travel.”
The collection has a range of jackets, T-shirts, polo shirts, and pants that can double as swimwear. The items come in blue, green, and gray—basic colors for easy mixing and matching.
