MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Global apparel retailer UNIQLO today announces the launch of the 2023 Fall/Winter issue of LifeWear magazine (Issue 09) on Friday, August 25. LifeWear magazine is a free publication that expresses the UNIQLO LifeWear philosophy of making the everyday lives of people better and more comfortable. The theme of Issue 09 for Fall/Winter is “Modern Layering,” and the issue focuses on the role of layering clothing – exploring the limitless fashion potential that comes from adeptly combining basic items.
Takahiro Kinoshita, Fast Retailing Group Executive Vice President and Creative Director, commented, “Every item of UNIQLO clothing has a very simple design that can be easily worn by anyone. But depending on how items are combined, I think that it is clothing with infinite possibilities. Clothing does not have character on its own, but clothes bring out the individuality of the wearer. That’s why how you wear clothing is so important. In this issue of LifeWear magazine, we focus on layering. We introduce chic color layering centered on the gray and navy that is trending this fall, along with functional layered styles using HEATTECH, which this year marks 20 years since its release, as well as Ultra Light Down. This issue has us eagerly awaiting cooler weather for us to enjoy layering.”
