Japanese fashion retailer Uniqlo adds a new dimension to LifeWear’s commitment to the Japanese values of simplicity, quality, and longevity by launching a line of men’s polo shirts made in collaboration with Engineered Garments.
The line features men’s polo shirts in three various styles representing Engineered Garments’ take on wardrobe basics. The New York-based comtemporary fashion label is known for its pieces influenced by American sportswear, outdoor clothing, and military uniform.
The Uniqlo x Engineered Garments collaboration consists of items based on rugby shirts as well as shirts with deliberately mismatched looks, each with the back and left sleeve carrying colors that differ from those in the front and right sleeve; and shirts featuring three stripes of different widths in complementary tones.
“From the inception of this project I looked forward to completing the challenge of crafting new basics that would incorporate Uniqlo’s first-rate quality control and materials development ethos in Engineered Garments styling that is at once simple and subtly distinctive. I’m delighted with what we’ve achieved through this partnership,” shared Engineered Garments head Daiki Suzuki.
Yuki Katsuta, group senior vice president of Fast Retailing and head of Uniqlo R&D expressed excitement and respect for Engineered Garments.
“I have tremendous respect for the brand’s ability to identify what’s important in clothing and present new ideas every season. Our two companies share a same philosophy about the essence of clothing and creating simple designs for a better future. This led to our working together on polo shirts, which are universal essentials for men’s spring and summer wardrobes,” said Katsuta.
The polo shirt collection is set to roll out at all Uniqlo stores on May 27.
