Francisco Lachowski for UNIQLO LifeWear 2013
UNIQLO is a new Japanese company that ensures it provides casual clothes for all kinds of people. In 1984, Fast Retailing, headed by Tadashi Yanai, opened the first UNIQLO store in Hiroshima, Japan. Since then, the brand has evolved from a chain of roadside stores to an international leader in style, quality, and fun.
It doesn’t matter who you are or where you live, UNIQLO makes clothes that transcend all categories and social groups. Their clothes are made for all, going beyond age, gender, occupation, ethnicity, and all other ways that define people.The clothes are simple and essential yet universal, so people can freely combine them in their own unique style.
As their founder says, “UNIQLO clothes are MADE FOR ALL–highly finished elements of style in clothes that suit your values wherever you live. This unique concept of clothes sets them apart from apparel companies whose sole purpose is the pursuit of fashion trends.” Can clothing change the world? UNIQLO not only believes it can. They’re already doing it.
