[Update: Thursday, November 8]: Alexander Wang’s price-friendly collection with Uniqlo has arrived.
“Uniqlo are the ideal partners for this collection of innerwear because we share an appreciation of functionality and utilitarianism, and I am thrilled our collaboration has resulted in developing a new HeatTech line,” the designer said in a statement. “The perfect place to pick up from where we left off ten years ago.”
Filled with all of the basics one would ever need, the HeatTech line will keep you warm and cozy when the weather starts to drop. Plus, it’s all below $40.
Below, shop the five best pieces from the collection, available today at Uniqlo.
[October 10, 2018]: Alexander Wang and Uniqlo are releasing an underwear collection this fall, Vogue reports. Coming at the end of October, the collab will offer underwear-centric pieces like briefs, bras, T-shirts, bodysuits and leggings for men and women.
Priced affordably between $15 and $35, each piece will be made using Uniqlo’s super-warm HeatTech fabric.
“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.”
Another exciting aspect of the collection is that each piece will come in neutral colors and also a bright neon green – one of our favorite colors of the moment. Wang first collaborated with Uniqlo 10 years ago in 2008 for a ready-to-wear collection.
The designer is also encouraging people to wear the underwear as outerwear, if they so desire. “Wear the bra top with a high-waisted jean and a denim jacket,” he tells Vogue.
The Alexander Wang x Uniqlo collection will drop this month with a special event in New York City.
