Today, Uniqlo and Alexander Wang dropped its second collection of basics, and these pieces are going to be the most comfortable things you own.
The collection itself is full of basics with purpose. Made with Uniqlo's AIRism fabric and incorporating Wang's sleek styling, these are garments you can do pretty much anything in. The women's collection includes pieces in sheer fabric which was "developed to feel like a 'second skin,'" as well as seamless AIRism fabric which is slightly heavier. Uniqlo promises that the pieces are made with materials "so smooth, light, and comfortable that [you] almost forget [you] are wearing them," which is great news. Any time I can wear clothes while feeling like I'm not wearing anything is preferred in my book. You'll now be able to drape yourself in bodysuits, dresses, crop tops, bras, and underwear in the lush fabric.
In a press release, Wang said that, with the second collaboration, "it felt like there was a mutual understanding of not only aesthetics but of each other's work ethic." And that "it was easier coming together this time around to accomplish a similar goal from various touch-points." He continued: "Innovation has always been at the forefront of our design and creative process, and functionality serves a huge purpose in the way I and our customers dress."
Alexander Wang's collection with Uniqlo drops today in Uniqlo stores and online.
