DREW JESSUP @drewjessup | Photographer



What’s your favorite piece in the new collection?
There are so many pieces I love in the Uniqlo U collection, but my favorite piece has to be the U Denim Work Jacket I'm wearing in my photos. I could see myself grabbing for that jacket before I leave my apartment every day. It's such a brilliant balance of that classic denim shade of blue mixed in a workwear style, that's also roomy enough to layer pieces underneath, or that's perfectly oversized with a T-shirt. I'm really such a huge fan.

Describe UNIQLO in one word.
Effortless. I say that because effortless is the ultimate goal of any wardrobe. I don't think you should be spending too much time thinking about what you're wearing, at the same time you should be putting on clothing that represents you well and makes you feel good.

Tell us about a favorite trip you’ve taken.
I've been lucky enough to travel a lot, especially within the last three years. Though, my favorite trip to date is, without a doubt, the surprise trip to Munich with my mom. I was heading to Munich for work and was lucky enough to bring someone along. My mom has been my absolute rock of a support system my whole life, but most notably throughout my often fickle adult journey.

Describe UNIQLO in one word.
I would describe UNIQLO as essential.

What’s your favorite piece in the new collection?
I am obsessed with the BLOCKTECH Trench Coat. I love the color and the cocooning shape. It's a stylish addition to my Spring look.

I am a chameleon, I can wear anything. Right now, I like to say my look is modern magic. Mixing crisp shapes and neutral colors that are far from minimal.

How would you describe UNIQLO in a word?
Necessary!

Tell us about a favorite trip you’ve taken.
My favorite trip was in 2014. I was sponsored by Lincoln to show my collection in Dubai. It was so magical to see the sand, the architecture, the culture and the luxury. My line sold out straight off the runway and I will always love the U.A.E for that experience.

My favorite trip I’ve taken recently was to Bali. I love the culture, the people were so inviting and friendly, and the food was amazing. I also love that it is a destination where I could pack let’s say 10 items and style it in 20 different ways which in my opinion is so ideal!

The U Tailored Jacket (obviously in black). Christophe and Sarah are genius when it comes to fit and tailoring, and I love the way there suits fit.
