The “cool” season is here!
We’ve got quite a cold spell right from the yearend in Bangkok, which sent me looking for a sweater and jacket to fend off the chill. It’s good to give my air conditioner a break after working so hard all year round. But as we all know, the cold here seems short-lived, so bring out your hippest jacket or grab one at Nike’s, before dropping by Uniqlo – a really proactive brand, already launching their cool spring/summer collections here. They know our climate too well!
Scheduled to launch on Jan 26, Uniqlo’s U Collection for spring/summer returns to its core philosophy of creating high-quality clothing with simple designs and comfort in mind. The collection is designed to be slightly oversized for comfort and features nature-inspired tone colors such as sky blue and grass green with stripes and borders.
To fight the chill this winter, NikeLab presents the new Nike ACG (All Conditions Gear) 3-in-1 System Coat. The coat features two jackets in one, and can be worn three ways, adapting to different weather conditions. The outer layer offers wind-and-water protection, with a carrying strap for off-shoulder wearing. The detachable internal bomber jacket is designed to be worn on its own or with the outer shell. The jacket’s futuristic design will certainly be a magnet for urban fashionistas, regardless of weather conditions.
