Designs by UNIQLO Paris R&D Center Led by Christophe Lemaire

January 7, 2019, Manila, Philippines – UNIQLO will offer replica game wear at the 2019 Australian Open by its Global Brand Ambassador Roger Federer. Items will be available from January 14, 2019 at UNIQLO Manila in Glorietta 5.

The new game wear model was created by the design team at the UNIQLO Paris R&D Center, led by Artistic Director Christophe Lemaire, in consultation with the international player.

Roger Federer model features a new open collar – The Roger Federer model has been redesigned with an elegant open collar instead of the stand collar as seen from the last collection. The color is a deep blue to contrast with the blue hard courts, accented with white piping on the shirttail. Functional elements include a fully mesh back to provide good breathability, allowing for high-performance play. Comment from Roger Federer – “As the defending champion, I want to play my best so that I achieve a great result again this year. Working closely with the UNIQLO product development team, we have created a highly refined match outfit that provides the functionality I need to play my best on the court while also making sure we pay careful attention to design and detail. I’m looking forward to stepping on the court in Melbourne with the new designs.”

Highly Functional Dry EX Material Trusted by Top Athletes

Jointly developed by UNIQLO and Toray Industries, Dry EX features a special arched structure that dries faster than ordinary dry function material, preventing the steamy and sticky feeling due to perspiration and keeping a comfortable feel during play. The raised structure is well suited to the strenuous movements of tennis. Highly breathable mesh has been used in areas that accumulate sweat, helping to avoid overheating and allowing the athletes to be at their very best during competition.
