How New York City Movers Wear New UNIQLO U

Always moving forward.
UNIQLO is the creator of LifeWear, thoughtfully designed clothing that makes everyday life better and more comfortable. Created in our Paris atelier by artistic director Christophe Lemaire and a team of international designers, UNIQLO U is the future of LifeWear.

To highlight this unique collection, UNIQLO has proudly partnered with four New Yorkers that make moves in the city that never sleeps —a chef-turned-restauranteur; a fashion editor and influencer; an entrepreneur; and an artist. Whether jetting to the Lower East Side for a meeting, prepping the kitchen for a new launch, or walking the streets of Williamsburg for inspiration, this is the apparel that moves them forward. See their stories below, and then shop the UNIQLO U Fall/Winter collection.

WHAT DOES YOUR PERFECT DAY LOOK LIKE?
"I’m an early bird and covet my morning quiet time. I actually get my best work done in the morning when I'm not distracted by the rest of the day, so I’ll spend time writing until about noon. The rest of the day is spent out of the office taking meetings, shooting content, or testing new places. A perfect day is a day of spontaneous activities while meeting amazing people that give me something to write about. 

WHAT DOES LIFEWEAR MEAN TO YOU?
"I always say that a good outfit can give you all the ammunition you need to conquer anything. I’m always on the go and want to be in clothing that’s versatile and take me from a casual business meeting to an event at night and beyond. LifeWear gives me that ammunition to feel my best self and with no extra fuss."
