Global apparel retailer UNIQLO launches the LifeWear magazine Issue 07, 2022 Fall/Winter. The theme of this latest publication is “Today’s Classics,” showcasing designs that are at first glance traditional and basic but updated with modern details.
The Issue 07, 2022 Fall/Winter also focuses on clothing that reflects ingenuity and a commitment
to quality manufacturing, contemplating the standards of the future through a variety of fashion
stories and interviews.
Takahiro Kinoshita, Fast Retailing Group Executive Vice President and Creative Director commented:
“The 2022 Fall/Winter issue of the LifeWear magazine is a contemplation of ‘old yet new,’ the
timeless that exists in our world. The outdated disappears, while the flashy is soon dismissed. But
old things that feel eternally new have special value. ‘Today’s Classics’ are central to the spirit of
LifeWear, which aims to honor history while constantly evolving. This issue reflects that idea. The
cover art borrows from the archive of textile-dyeing artist Keita Miyairi, presenting wonderful ‘old
yet new’ artwork.”
