Photos and prices: Alexander Wang x Uniqlo's Heattech collection
MANILA, Philippines – Uniqlo’s latest collaboration with famed designer Alexander Wang has arrived in Philippine shores.
The Japanese retail giant’s partnership with the Taiwanese-American designer comes in the form of sleek, futuristic and sporty innerwear made with its propietary Heattech fabric.
Reflecting the designer’s distinct, urban-influenced style, the collaboration includes bodysuits, leggings, t-shirts, bras, briefs, tank tops and more in a Wang’s signature black, a neutral palette – plus a striking neon green.
While designed for retaining heat in colder climes, pieces from the collection can also be worn on its own.
“We thought this could be a great concept where we think about how to marry the two ideas: Heattech and underwear,” Wang told Vogue.
“[Heattech] is something that I’ve always been very inspired by, by the advancement and innovation in fabrication. I wanted to think about it in a way where even if it wasn’t just worn on the inside – if you wore it as a top as something to lounge around in – you feel like there’s a style, an aesthetic that could stand on its own.”
This is not Wang’s first collaboration with Uniqlo though. The latest collection comes 10 years after their 2008 partnership.
See the Autumn/Winter 2018 collection below – available in 20 countries and all Uniqlo Philippines stores starting November 9.
