Fitness and fashion merge as popular Japanese casual wear Uniqlo joined the high-performance sphere with the launch of Uniqlo Sports in the Philippines.
Designed not only for sports but also for day-to-day activities, this sub-brand features athletic function without compromising comfort and style.
“We strive to make the good life better by continuously producing high-quality and innovative products that address the changing lifestyles of Filipinos,” said Geraldine Sia, Uniqlo Philippines general manager in an interview.
Uniqlo Sports is part of the Uniqlo LifeWear collection that highlights apparel that comes from the Japanese values of “simplicity, quality, and longevity.”
Two products that showcase the label’s style in its foray into sportswear are the Dry Ex polo for men and the AIRism full zip hoodie for women
Dry Ex is made of high-tech material that can dry excessive sweat with rapid speed. Although it’s 100 percent polyester, the texture is similar to cotton pique material designed to allow excellent mobility
The AIRism full zip hoodie for women, on the other hand, is great for both warm-weather exercise and everyday casual wear. It disperses moisture, helping the body feel cool, while its breathable mesh material lets wearer slip on it easily while the UV-cut function and the thumbholes in the sleeves keep even the hands safe from ultraviolet rays.
