Uniqlo has dropped its 2019 Fall and Winter collection with LifeWear on center stage. Made up of thoughtfully created clothing designed to make everyday life better and more comfortable, the collection/s emerge from Japanese values of simplicity, quality, and longevity.
“Form Follows Function” expresses the design principle of modernism that arose in the early 20th century – that things with superior function have an efficient beauty. The reverse is also true. Function and beauty are closely connected in a way that cannot be separated. While this phrase remains just as fresh a century later, UNIQLO is examining it in a new light in the Fall/Winter 2019 season.
The new releases come from a variety of existing and beloved collections such as Outerwear, Fleece, Knitwear, Bottoms, Lounge Wear, Kids, Baby, and Uniqlo U. These collections have constantly launched fashion staples season after season, but perhaps two Fall/Winter releases that we’re most excited about are the two sets of stunning designs from Ines de la Fressange and Hana Tajima.
Ines de la Fressange
The collection created with global fashion icon Ines de la Fressange is essential wear delivering beauty and comfort to all women. The image for this season is drawn from Ines’s childhood memories of Megève, and the line continues to offer the comfort and quality of UNIQLO LifeWear as a regular part of everyday lifestyles.

Megève in France is a charming panorama dotted with traditional churches and small bridges, as well as small and stately lodges exuding a nostalgic elegance. It is a special place where the sensibilities of the town residents and the holiday season visitors intermingle. To Ines, this place is a chic winter scene.
Fall/Winter 2019 marks the ninth season for UNIQLO to collaborate with New York-based, UK-born fashion designer Hana Tajima. With careful attention to detail and commitment to comfort, the collection is designed to enhance the beauty of all women regardless of age, ethnicity, culture, or belief.
HANA TAJIMA FOR UNIQLO expresses the rich diversity of world cultures with graceful forms and satisfying comfort. The collection of everyday wear has received positive attention around the world ever since its first launch.
This season focuses on the strength and beauty of women, elegantly presented by the fine balance of both feminine and masculine details in the designs. The key colors were inspired from minerals found in the earth, creating a nuanced color palatte of blues, oranges, beige browns, and reds. Some of the tops and bottoms are available in matching colors, allowing them to be styled as a two-piece outfit.
