Uniqlo S/S 08

Recommended Posts

strike one: trucker cap

strike two: wayfarers

strike three: photographic print tees

while i dont completely disapprove, the collection reaches in many many directions (at least in the men's range). the mash up of junya watanabe, supreme and robert geller is rather unappealing to me...

i guess what im trying to say is the multivalency of aesthetics present in this collection undermine the coherence, practicality and narrow (though immanently wearable) scope that were appreciable in the last few collections

Trucker hats are due for a quick trend resurgance in my opinion. I'd cop a cheap pink one.

Curious what they're backpack is going to look like, and I'm digging the field jacket.

When does this begin hitting stores?

I need the poplin parka / air protection field jacket / colorful windbreaker. Seriously.

edit: Also, UNIQLO website: STOP FUCKING MOVING FOR 10 GODDAMN SECONDS.

Thanks OMC.

Uniqlo does a pretty good job at styling their looks that's for sure, although I do agree the trucker hat is pretty bad (the wayfarers I don't care about).

Uniqlo's basics are great though, I wear my cardigans, tees, and jeans all the time!

windbreaker and shorts look like nice alternatives to those made from designers...hmm...the stretch jeans look like they'd be comfortable too.

If you're bad at dressing yourself, you could do a lot worse than imitate the uniqlo catalog.

Reminds me that I need to buy some colorful light-outerwear pieces to go under my coat (air protection field jacket image).

uniqlo basics: you get more than what you paid for.

has Uniqlo had a singular big hit product since the polar fleece jumper days of yore, when every Japanese person on earth had one?

On the side, I wish they'd not cast their net so wide and put a little more thought into/offer more options for sizing. I consider myself to be of average Asian build (5'9, 120-140lbs depending on the season) but can't ever find anything that really fits me in Uniqlo. I'd pay the $20 or $30 for a broadcloth shirt if they offered separate neck/sleeve sizing, over the $10 they usually offer a standard S/M/L for, as I think they're quite well made and the materials are nice, but for me to fit into a medium longsleeve shirt, my wrists hang several inches past the cuffs...

I agree with mellowbonsai, some of the individual pieces are cool, but the collection isnt as good/focused as the winter one.

Then again, it is Uniqlo and not some high fashion brand, so *shrug*

Any idea when this arrives in the stores? Probably not before jan 1st right? My gf really wants to pick up a couple things there now. Some of the women's stuff is pretty cool.

Wayfarers are okay in my book, might pick up another pair for the upcoming season as mine didn't last through a night of debauchery earlier this year.

I like the white skinny jeans, anyone know when they'll be out in NYC?

i dunno, everybody was geeking out about the f/w lookbook based on the styling but the pieces' effect was much different in reality. i wouldn't hang too much on it, although the men's line does look crazy boring.

I meant that the styling isn't as focused, not that the quality was as "good".

Part of me hates Uniqlo for having such a great stylist that I get all excited, and then I get to the store, and less than a quarter of the items are interesting. At least I'm not expecting much from this collection.

By far, the standout looks are the ones with the field protection jacket and the yellow windbreaker. Second to pretty much everything else that's been said.

The styling on some of the shots is pretty rad in paticular there field protection jacket and the windbreaker.

But as with all pieces of clothing the actual person makes it what it is. So if fat douche bags with no sense of sizing try and copy the looks and end up looking a cross between Big Momma and Eddy Izzard then you've only got yourself to blame....

I can't wait to get my hands on that fied protection jacket, windbreaker, plaid and ginghan shirts and see them in the flesh.

But for the record.....

well that's what i mean - you get all hyped up on something cos of the styling but in reality it's different. which is fair enough, but what i was suggesting was a wait and see attitude. same with everything else in this blog-frenzied time.

I'm just going to keep bumping this on occasion until someone either a. figures out when this is coming in or b. it comes in.

I'll keep an eye on it. I could be sooner than we think.

Also as soon as it comes in you should get it cause I slept on few fall pieces and they sold out very fast. I don't think they restock a lot so once it's gone that's it.
