Uniqlo will launch the Tomas Maier and Uniqlo resort collection in stores and online in 19 markets starting May 18th. This collaboration with the internationally renowned Tomas Maier brand represents Uniqlo’s entry into the resort wear field.
Uniqlo looks forward to bringing new excitement to LifeWear this summer through this new range for men and women, which fuses Tomas Maier’s “time off” and “escape” philosophy with Uniqlo’s commitment to create high-quality clothing that is universal in design and comfort and made for everyone, everywhere. The collection helps people get away from it all, whether relaxing at a resort or winding down after a busy day at work.
Commenting on this announcement, Tomas Maier says, “Our new collection is designed to work in many different ways. Beach attire can turn into lounge wear, casual cover-ups paired with polo shirts can easily be worn in town – this is the concept of my brand. Things work in many ways. Even if bought for a special trip or occasion, the customer will soon discover these garments adapt to a year-round life.”
Yuki Katsuta, Group Senior Vice President of Fast Retailing and Head of Global R&D at Uniqlo, comments, “We have been delighted to collaborate with Tomas Maier in creating this exciting new LifeWear range. I am sure people will love mixing and matching pieces from our first resort wear collection, adding a splash of summer fun to everyday living, weekends and vacation travel.”
The collection features orange, yellow and other hues inspired by the sun-kissed splendor of Florida, where Tomas Maier originated, as well as the brand’s iconic palm tree motif. The women’s line includes dresses, camisoles, polo sweaters and swimwear that are practical as well as stylish.
Featuring navy, black and khaki, the men’s range offers coordination flexibility with a range of jackets, T-shirts, polo shirts and easy pants that double as smart swimwear.
The Tomas Maier and Uniqlo line keeps wearers looking and feeling cool and comfortable in innovative fabrics, notably AIRism for jackets and polo shirts, extra-fine cotton for shirts, Supima cotton for T-shirts, and 100% cashmere for summer knits.
