Uniqlo Taps Tomas Maier For Its Next Designer Collaboration


Uniqlo has tapped Tomas Maier for its next designer collaboration. Taking over from J.W. Anderson, the collection will focus specifically on the LifeWear section of the retailer, working in the “time off” and “escape” philosophies usually seen in the German designer’s brand.

“The concept of my brand is based on simple, yet sophisticated designs.Tomas Maier is all about clothes for time off – a way for people to enjoy a much-needed escape from some of the complexities of modern living. I am confident that we were able to incorporate UNIQLO’s remarkable technologies and expertise successfully into our collaboration line, which I hope can help people to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.” reads a press release.

The Uniqlo x Tomas Maier collection will be available at Uniqlo’s stores from early summer, with no firm date being given as of yet. Let us know what you think of the collab in the comments section below, and as always, keep it locked at Above The Sole for the latest and greatest in streetwear.
