Alexander Wang and Uniqlo are releasing a co-branded underwear collection this fall, http://uristocrat.com/2009/09/heineken-red-star-soul-tour-philadelphia-stop-with-ludacris-melanie-fiona-and-dj-jazzy-jeff/ Vogue. Dropping at the end of the month, the collaboration comprises a wide range of basics, including bodysuits, tees, leggings, bras, and briefs for both men and women.
Each of the pieces will come in a variety of neutral colors, as well as a vivid neon green. With the collection dropping in FW18, everything has been made using Uniqlo’s cozy Heattech fabric. Items will be priced between $15 and $35.
“We thought this could be a great concept where we think about how to marry the two ideas: Heattech and underwear,” Wang told Vogue. “Heattech is a program created out of innovation, function, and utility. It’s something that I’ve always been very inspired by, by the advancement and innovation in fabrication. I wanted to think about it in a way where even if it wasn’t just worn on the inside — if you wore it as a top as something to lounge around in — you feel like there’s a style, an aesthetic that could stand on its own.”
Wang also revealed that even major-league high-fashion designers shop at Uniqlo, in his case primarily for basics. “Socks, underwear, those everyday essential items,” Wang said. “It’s not fussy. It’s pure, there’s quality to it.”
This isn’t Wang’s first collaboration with the Japanese retailer, having worked with Uniqlo on a ready-to-wear collection back in 2008.
