About LifeWear magazine Issue 07
Old yet new. Some things have a way of being both at once. This issue of LifeWear magazine explores the persistent freshness of today's classics. Imagine a cafe founded a hundred years ago, serving the latest specialty coffee. In some ways it feels like time has stopped, and yet the sense of change is palpable.
Issue 07 of LifeWear magazine focuses on “Today’s Classics” - classic ideas and clothes that have a traditional design that has been updated with a modern touch. This mood permeates the designs and styling for UNIQLO’s Autumn/Winter 2022 collection.
The outdated falls out of fashion, while the flashy is soon weeded out. But the old things that feel perennially new have a special value. “Today’s classics” are central to the spirit of LifeWear, which aims to honour history while constantly evolving.
